If you have audio cables from your source connected to the capture card, then your Recording device needs to be the Line In of the capture card.

If you connect the source to the Line In on the computer, then you use that as the default recording device. Until I set this, the default audio recording device was my microphone (not connected at the time). In Windows, you need the Manage Audio Devices Recording tab. (In Windows 7 and 8, it's under Control Panel > Hardware and Sound > Sound > Manage Audio Devices.)

If you are recording something playing on your computer, then the stereo mix option may work.

You should be able to use any video&audio software if the drivers are compatible. Thus the software you used for the video recording should work. (Stereo mix may be an exception - not all sound cards actually work when you try to record that content.)

I hope this helps.

How do I set up creative cam for singsnap..karokee site..its like its running too many cams.and won't let me use the wizard to set up the sing site..even..its very frustrating..but when I plug in my old...


SingSnap Voice and video Setup
SingSnap is a free site boasting an extensive song list with a wide range of styles and time periods available.
(There's plenty of Def Leppard!) Don't be fooled by what's available to view - the site lets you use three kinds of
web cams. It seems few folks use them though, but who knows why. There's a configuration wizard process for audio,
video, and Internet settings, making it a real, well, snap to set up. The site lets you tweak your video look, and
turn on or off ratings, comments, duets, and embeds. There's a pay option of $7 a month that removes advertising and
gives you an expanded song selection.

Copy this web site and paste it in your browser and HIT ENTER:

http://www.singsnap.com/snap/singandrecord/intro

CLICK on this: Run the SingSnap setup wizard...

Then you will find the SINGSNSP WIZARD, follow the instructions and it should work with both Video & Audio.
At the bottom of the WIZARD click on PROCEED.

Hope this helps. Bud

HERE IS THE FAQ SECTION WHICH MAY ALSO BE OF HELP TO YOU>

Copy this site to your web browser address bar

http://www.singsnap.com/snap/help/faq

for additional Frequeuently Asked Questions (FAQ) I inserted a few below to help you.

#1 Can I improve the video quality on my recordings?

Make sure you have nice, bright lighting for recording video. Also, you can try running the Setup Wizard again.


#2 Can you help me find "Stereo Mix" / "What U Hear" on my sound card?

Sure, click "Start" -> "Control Panel" -> "Sounds and Audio Devices" -> "Audio" -> Click the "Volume" button under "Sound recording" -> "Options" -> "Properties" -> make sure everything is checked -> click "OK".

You should now see the "Stereo Mix" or "What U Hear" line if it's supported by your sound card.


#3 Can I use a USB microphone to record?

Yes, you can. When you record with SingSnap you have the option to "Enable Music" in the preview step of the recording process. When "Enable Music" is checked the voice track from your USB microphone will be mixed in with the music track.


#4 How should my sound card be configured when "Enable Music" is checked?

When "Enable Music" is checked it means the voice track from your computer will be mixed in with the music track from our server. For this reason your sound card settings should be set to record "Mic" and not "What U Hear" or "Stereo Mix" so that only your voice is recorded.

Here's a step by step guide on how to do this in Windows XP:

- Click "Start", (possibly "Settings") and "Control Panel"
- Double Click "Sound And Audio Devices"
- Click the "Audio" tab at the top
- Under "Sound Recording", click the "Volume" button (about half way down)

This brings up a new box, likely titled "Record Control" with some sliders on it. You need to look for "Mic", "Microphone" or "Input". If you don't see this, look for something that is similar or means the same thing. If you still don't see anything:

- Click "Options" (in the menu at the top of this window)
- Click "Properties"
- In the white box, check "Microphone" or anything similar
- Click OK

Now try to select the microphone (or whatever it is called on your machine).

If you are using a Webcam or USB microphone or mixer, you don't need to do any of this. Just run the wizard and select your webcam or USB mic from there.

Hope this is of some help to you. Bud

Imic mon only-left channel is all that is seen


Audacity with Griffin iMic under Vista

There is limited and conflicting advice on the web about whether the iMic audio-usb adaptor can be used with Vista (for those who discover that new laptops commonly lack a stereo line-in port, and seek some way to use Audacity as described in the tutorial on capturing music files from vinyl, tapes etc).

In my case at least (Vista business 32 on a Thinkpad X200 with inbuilt Conexant Smartaudio 221 soundcard), it could be made to work as follows:

1. Plug the iMic device (iMic2 in my case) directly into a usb port on the computer. Allow the automatic loading of drivers by Vista.

2. Via control panel or right-click on the speaker icon in the system tray, access the Vista configuration for Sounds.

3. In the Recording tab, you should now see the added iMic usb device (probably designated as a microphone). The default set-up seems to be mono - so you need to make this change for this device: select Properties, Advanced, "2 channel...44100 Hz... CD quality".

I also disabled the built-in laptop microphone so there would be no chance of it interfering with recordings (or software conflicts?) - not sure if this is relevant but easy to test in the event that you strike a problem.

4. In the Playback tab, decide what you want as the default speakers.

The default seems to become the usb adaptor, but I changed back to the built-in speakers for monitoring - not sure if this is relevant but easy to test in the event that you strike a problem.

5. In Audacity (1.3.6 beta in my case): under Edit, Preferences, Recording, choose the iMic device and stereo. Project rate at bottom left of screen should match the quality chosen in Vista set-up for the device (44100 Hz).

6. While in Audacity, Edit, Preferences, Playback, choose the desired speakers (the built-in laptop set in my case) and click "Software playthrough" if you want to monitor what is being recorded (with a slight delay).

7. Immediately testing the set-up to record generated an Audacity "error while opening sound device". This only seemed avoidable by going back to mono settings in various places. BUT all is not lost...

8. Reboot! (With the iMic device connected in my case - not sure if this is necessary.) Ta-da ... all now works as desired for stereo recording. Use the same usb socket for the iMic in future, or you will have to repeat the set-up for each usb socket.

9. The Audacity volume sliders do not work under Vista, but you have several options to adjust recording volume:

(i) Use the slider under the Vista configuration for Sounds, Recording, iMic, Properties, Levels. For me this introduced a lot of hum at high settings, so I recommend keeping it below 5/100.

(ii) Use the iMic slider switch in the Mic position rather than the Line position, and fine tune as in (i) above. For me this gave the lowest background noise/hum.

(iii) Use the headphone out from your hi-fi amplifier and control volume there. This gave more background noise for me.

10. Keep the iMic device away from power supplies (it can pick up hum) and any source of vibration (if you tap it you will see a spike in the signal) while recording.

If you get hum, check whether it is from your laptop power supply (unplug and record using the laptop battery to see if the hum disappears). In my case there was unbearable hum from an iGo Juice supply, but much less from the Lenovo power brick.

After all that it is just about as good as my old Thinkpad X31 which has an inbuilt line-in socket and Soundmax audio card under XP.

With any luck the same approach will help with other ‘new, improved’ (but lacking line-in) Vista computers.

I inadvertently deleted the Line-In Realtek High Definition Audio


Simply re-install the software and all your original data will be restored. If you purchased a downloaded version, go to the site from which your purchased it and request your keycode again, and permission to re-download. Then burn the text file with the keycode and the downloaded installer onto a CD so you won't lose it again. Another solution is to get Nero.
