    Hi, sorry I did type up the full explanation but it obviously didnt save!

    I am trying to record from my decks & mixer to my laptop using the recording studio Soundforge.

    I have everything set up correctly - including the connecting lead, and have soundforge set up correctly. The sound on my laptop itself is fine, however there is no sound getting through to soundforge from the decks. I have checked the settings on soundforge and they appear to be fine, and I have tried connecting it all up to my dads laptop - which again works fine through soundforge, but for some reason isnt working using my laptop. I have checked all the volume settings and they all appear to be ok apart from one - the stereo volume (which has the box checked and the volume is right down) which does not allow me to increase the volume. Im not sure if this is the problem, but it is the only thing that I can see that doesnt look right. Im at a loss as I have no idea why there is no sound playing through the recording progam.

    hi - ok 2 major issues here then.

    Firstly, on my laptop when I click the recording tab, there is no 'line in' box to check, would this be called anything else?

    Secondly,
    within soundforge, when I click options, and the audio tab there is no
    'record' tab there. Im using soundforge 8 - does this make any
    difference.

    No idea where to go from here!!!

Have you check which input the system is selected for recording it mite be site for the mic not the line in
check this in xp by going to the mixer

click options
click properties
check the box recording
now it should show the recording sliders (check marke the mark the following boxs to see the sliders)
Line in press ok
Put a check in the Linein slider and make sure it selected and turn erup

i also use wave labs and forge and quick basic test if you can record from the mic then its selected as the input

make sure other inputs are down as you will also get feedback from the builtin mic

    Just a it more info ,make sure sound forge is selecting connect audio drive as you may have it using some thing else

    Go to Soundforge
    Click Options
    Click Audio
    Click the Record TAB
    From the drop down menu Select the Device Type that is the one for the laptop (could be the microsoft sound map or the sound card thats in the machine


  • webbkiddy Oct 09, 2008

    Ok we have some issue here , have you checked the sound card to see if its instsalled correctly
    Just some question
    Have ever recorded anything on this laptop before?
    what options do you see in recording section of xp (and did you check all the boxes to see the sliders)
    if so what is the slider selected to record from?

    You should have one slider that is for the input your are pluging the turn tables in

    not seeing a recording setting sound forge hmm thats funny to
    we could try recording from the mic in to see if its worrking ok

This is the active mixer error message... --------------------------- Volume Control --------------------------- There are no active mixer devices available. To install mixer devices, go to Control Panel,...


NO active mixer is one of the volume control, your sound card or your audio port is not installed. try to install again your motherboard installer and locate for the audio of it of for the soundcard. Then after that restart and when the sounds come then you successfully installed it

I have an IBM thinkpad 600 windows XP,HOW do I connect the laptop to an audio mixer to licen music from windows media player and what cables do I need to buy? thank you


The laptop should have a headphone output jack. You can get a cable that has the appropriate stereo plug on one end, and whatever plugs you need (probably RCA or 1/4-inch) on the other. Radio Shack sells such cables. If you are outside of the US you will probably find suitable cables locally or online.

Connection is very simple. Just run the cable from the computer's headphone jack to an input on the mixer. Adjust the laptop's volume and mixer level controls as needed.

No sound or mixer devices


a. your sound device may be built right in to your motherboard (make sure it's enabled in your bios)
b. you probably don't have installed any drivers for your sound device- install drivers by going into the motherboard manufacturer or your computer manufacturer.. post details and will help you look for them
