Go to your computer start menu. Then to control panel, then system sound /audio devices. Locate the master audio control. There should be a slider for Mic. Adjust this volume until you hear your voice. Depending on your computer built in soundcard the volume/quality will vary. You might consider a external soundcard.

C1000s hum/buzz on phantom power


possibly the microphone needs more power than your sound card can supply although I cannot imagine as the duet is a good piece of equipment.
Is the duet USB bus powered?
Have you tried another cable? Possibly one wire is defective which means that phantom power will superpose the audio signal. In this case you might hear a hum. By the way this results in 6dB of signal loss. This is why XLR plugs have 3 wires. If connected with a 1/4" jack it has to be a stereo plug (tip, ring, sleeve)

How to play computer sounds through microphone


<p>There may, of course, sounds from a microphone, because there is a speaker, but you can use sounds from a microphone or something speakers connected to the microphone system is played. Computer games, but might sound a bit complicated because they usually lead to loud sounds into the microphone to a number set. <br /> <p><br /> <p>1. Find the computer that you want to play sound. Go to Control Panel and click on "Hardware and Sound." Under "Sound" in "Changing the system sounds." You can access various Windows sounds by selecting them and clicking "Test". <br /> <p><br /> <p>2. External speakers to the sound card or audio output on a laptop. With active speakers is recommended, the stronger the better. Set the microphone in front of the speaker. <br /> <p><br /> <p>3. Connect the microphone and play the sound from computer speakers. That should pass the microphone for recording or performing live. <br />

I connected the microphone on my computer and the system rec.ognized the microphone but I don't know how to use it with the computer to bring out sound


The thing is that the Samson C01U was not designed for live applications. Your solution, if you like delayed sound, is to use Virtual Audio Cable. Otherwise, I would get either a Samson GTrack, or invest in a cheap but functional mixer with a good mic. If you want to record however, you go into your audio recording settings and select the C01U as the recording mic. If you record and hear little sound, go into sound manager... Click on properties and select on Samson C01U. A one channel volume control will pop out. change the volume and record. BTW, a good audio program is Audacity... It's free. I hope that I have helped you...

Friends say When i speak sounds like Static any 1 know how to change setting or find it in computer. Im using Satellite Fusion


The external microphone itself could be the culprit, or its connection to the 3.5mm port could be flaky. To test the theory do this:

1 Connect an external microphone to the computer.

2 Click Start, point to All Programs, Accessories, Entertainment, then click Sound Recorder.

3 Click the Record button and speak normally into the microphone.

>>>> WIGGLE THE CONNECTION AT THE LAPTOP OR FLEX THE MIC CABLE WHILE RECORDING. Maybe even narrate what you are doing while you record your voice. "Flexing cable near mic, now near plug..." <<<<

NOTE: You can only record 60 seconds at a time.

4 When you have finished recording, click the Stop button.

5 To hear what you just recorded, click the Play button.
6 To save the file, select Save from the File menu.

>>>> If you hear crackling in the playback that correlates with your handling of the cable then bad seating or a bad cable are the problem. <<<<


Adjusting recording quality

The better the quality of the recording, the more disk space the sound file requires. Experiment to find a balance that fits your needs.

1 Open Sound Recorder, if necessary (click Start, point to All Programs, Accessories, Entertainment, then click Sound Recorder).

2 In the Sound Recorder window, click Edit, then click Audio Properties.

3 In the Audio Properties window, adjust the Sound Playback quality and volume, and the Sound Recording volume.

4 Click OK.


Your new settings take effect the next time you record.

To connect a professional mic to a computer, you will need a USB interface such as the Shure X2u. Professional mics have too low of an output level to be connected directly to a computer.

Microphone too quiet


That's probably not going to work.
Mic level is extremely low compared with line level.
Your sound card is expecting a line level input.
It's simply not made to plug a microphone into (you must be using an adapter or two just to make the connection)
Look for a USB Audio Interface with XLR or 1/4" microphone inputs - these interfaces are pretty generic these days and easy to use ... just plug into your computer via USB and then plug the mic into the interface ... which has a volume control on it ...
I use a Tapco Link.USB ... and like it
