Go into settings>change sound card settings>recordings>choose your mic>go into levels and slide the volume to the needed level. This worked for me. This is a good suggestion to see if the mic levels are set correctly. However, there may be a simple solution to this. Go into Windows Update, Check for Updates and install any updates available. This worked ...

Yes. Apple computers (Both Laptop and Desktops) for the last few years have been able to use iPhone standard (CTIA Standard LRGM TRRS) headsets, with remotes even, for audio in and out. Apple Support: How to use Apple Earphones with Remote and Mic with your Mac Which Apple computers work with the microphone and volume controls that are included with the ...

As the jack/connection is dependent on the laptop having the correct 3.5mm connector (internal) wiring & logics, it will need to be a specific PC model (advertising that this is fully 4-pole compatible) and not just any device. That said, if you have a laptop that has inputs for both head-phone-speaker (3.5mm) & microphone (3.5mm) connectors, you ...

Have you tried restarting Skype to see if it reflects the changes this time? (it could be that skype locks the input device it's using on startup so if your mic is unplugged at that time, it might lock onto the onboard mic) Regarding the Analog Socket: I have the same icon (black) on the Realtek Controls on my Laptop. Whenever I plug it in, I get a popup ...

I'm afraid you have misunderstood the specifications. When Wacom say: Dual Microphone, Stereo Speakers, DC Jack, 1 Headset (Audio) They're actually specifying four discrete features: Microphone array (comprising of two microphones embedded in the tablet) Stereo speakers (embedded in the tablet) DC power socket Headphone jack The headphone jack is ...

First, make sure the recording device is actually enabled. Open "Sound" in Control Panel, switch to the Recording tab, right-click in the main white list box, and make sure "Show Disabled Devices" is checked. If it's not, check it, then right-click any new list box entries and choose Enable. If there were no disabled entries, Realtek's front panel jack ...

Much trial and error later I have it most (but not all) of the time. If anyone can piece together a more coherent explanation, please do post it and I'll accept it. This isn't helped by the fact there are a myriad of different versions and makes of all the software here... for me I think the important steps were: Telling the audio manager to treat ...

There are a number of forums etc. to try and fix this, but as it stand you will have to use a usb to 4 pin 3.5mm jack adapter because Apple have not updated the drivers to support 4 pin headsets under boot camp. https://discussions.apple.com/thread/3369017?start=15&tstart=0

After a lot of research, I came to the conclusion that the Ferrite bead is faulty. It's supposed to filter out the background electricity from the USB, but for some reason isn't working and is why I'm hearing the electricity in my headphones.

Replace the power supply, or at least borrow one to test. Make sure it is a genuine PSU from the manufacturers. Other than that, if you try the kit on another computer and still get the noise, you have a faulty item.

The mic being sent back into the headphones may not require the DAC operation at all, so by discluding aspects of the total curcuitry it sounding great is nothing. The DAC (digital analog converter) is often a critical component of quality sounds, while good ones do not require high costs, they often cost a lot more. Low level hiss and random low level ...

Soundflower still works- I've used it to record Google Chrome audio while listening to it. It doesn't normally inject periodic noise like Audio Hijack, but if it's set improperly it might make a very loud static noise.

The prime app for any task like this has always been Audio Hijack* from Rogue Amoeba - not cheap though for a single task, $49. I've not tried it for that specific task type, but there's a demo available. Though it injects periodic noise, it should be sufficient to test whether or not it's fully suitable for your intended purpose. Rogue Amoeba took over ...

Okay, got it. Used nircmd + autohotkey combo: #z::Run nircmd.exe mutesysvolume 1 "Neumann BCM 104" #z UP::Run nircmd.exe mutesysvolume 0 "Neumann BCM 104" "UP" is a key unpressed event. Key combination here is "Windows+Z". "Neumann BCM 104" is my device name (as in "Input Devices" in Windows). Nircmd's mutesysvolume reference: ...
