Microsoft moved the particular option that you need to enable since Windows XP, and have also changed its default to MUTE.

To hear what is playing through MIC IN...

  • Go to Control Panel and select "Sound"
  • Under the "Playback" tab, double click on your enabled speakers.
  • Select the "levels" tab, and look for "Mic In Volume".
  • Click once on the speaker icon that is muted to un-mute it.
I really hope that this has solved your problem, if it has not, please let me know and I will do my best to help you further. Good Luck!

SOURCE: Realtek HD Audio Troubleshhooting?

I had the same problem with both my Biostar 550 and Gigabyte P35 motherboards, both of which use Realtek ALC888 HD audio. Its got lots of fancy eq and effects but a crippled record mixer with greyed out sliders. I emailed realtek and they responded that its a Mixer Record type audio mixer only and follows microsofts HD audio specification...so blame microsoft or Realtek...or both. There is NO workaround for this.

The solution is to use a sound card with AC97 audio or if youre lucky enough to find a newer one with HD audio and a less crippled mixer. Problem being the industry seems to have embraced Realtek who seems fixated on offering partially disabled mixers. I purchased a Diamond Xtreme 7.1 sound card from officmax for 30 bux. They also have a 5.1 version for 20 bux. The main rec output is set to a fixed level but the individual rec. sliders ARE enabled. Recorded audio ends up being about 10db low but you can always boost it n post production using a recording program like audacity (which the sound card comes with - there are newer versions of audacity available so dont use the included version). - The only way to get FULL functionality
- ALL sliders is to find an older AC97 audio card. There are good ones and bad ones so it may take a few. Try the Diamond Xtreme card first and if you dont like it you can always take it back. This link is for the $30 verson. http://www.officemax.com/omax/catalog/sku.jsp?skuId=21080508&searchString=diamond%20xtreme&category_Id=null

Dont hesitate to send Realtek a "concerned" (not nasty) email about this. Hopefully If they get enough...they MAY take it seriously...but I wouldnt cross my fingers.

Good luck,
Dave

SOURCE: no recording?

In garageband when you have the gtrack set up , it will show you 2 options for input source 'USB Audio CODEC'. This is because you have 2 lines in, the mic and the jack. Make sure you have picked the correct one to record the vocals...otherwise it is expecting the jack input and will record nothing.

Hope this helps!

Why is it suddenly way too quiet?


Try a different mic to see if problem follows. If yes then it is a setting. If not then the mic is bad and needs to be sent to mfg or get a new one.

I have a samson c01u and using audacity. i set the input level in the control panel to 100 and also in audacity, but the the volume is still too low. i can barely hear my voice. what do i do?


1. Did you select Left channel only in Audacity for the track you're recording?
2. Maybe it's a defective mic. Try it on another computer/software/USB cable/USB port and if it still doesn't work get Samson to replace it.

Mic sound muffled static


Buy a better mic! This question reminds me of the musicians who invest in a nice JBL public address system but then use Radio Shack microphones. A good quality mic, not GREAT but just good will cost you a minimum of $100. Quit playing with toys and invest in real recording gear. Computers and hard drive recorders can easily record CD quality audio, and-so why would you use a $70 mic?

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...

The mic does not record stereo anymore. when playing back a stereo works fine but when recording in stereomodus only the left channel records, the right channel seems to record silence/noise


This Mic is not a stereo Mic. If you're using a windows computer, check your sound control panel to see if the mic wasn't suddenly set to two channel device.

Cannot record


Im having the same probz, got a Hp Pavilion Vista using mobile pre amp usb when i record using a condenser mic XLR nothing is picked up from the channels in Cubase or Nuendo. Im trying to record vocals but the Mic is not picked up and i cannot hear myself in the headphones and it wont transfere to cubase.

It has worked before when i had a desktop, but this only worked with a separate m-audio sound card inside the desktop and i plug in the output jax leads from the desktop (soundcard) to the m-audio usb pre amp

Is this why it is not working for the laptop do i need a Jax connection and where is this audacity

No recording?


The static after several seconds seems like this is a problem with certain versions of OS X. You might be able to fix it by downgrading or upgrading. Apple Forums say that it's fixed in 10.5.6.

You can double check that this is the problem by trying it on a Windows computer.
