Question about Labtec Verse 524 Consumer Microphone
I got this mic on ebay so it came with a plastic bag, no instructions. It looks self explanatory, youknow, plug pink cable into spot with mic picture. well, it didn't work. i tried all of the 'adjustment' stuff I could think of as well as skype's set up suggestions. what do i do?
I have written a guide on How to convert Records and Tapes to CD. I have found that when someone asks me a question like yours here is what I tell them. Go to http://audacity.sourceforge.net/ Download the program Audacity. It is a completely free program. It works great for many audio applications. It does not have spware or adware or anything like that attached to it. In fact many studios use this program. Click on the Download Audacity 1.2.6 link to download the program. Install the program and open the main window. In the middle of the window you will see a field that is labeled Microphone. If the field is not set to Microphone then change it by clicking on the drop down menu. There are two slider controls to the left and right of the small microphone icon. Click on the sliders and set them at about 1/2. These 2 controls are your microphone input level and your Audacity main volume control. Now simply click on the round red record button. Talk into your microphone. If your mic is recording you should see recorded sound waves in the middle of the window. Click on the square stop button and then click on the rewind button. Next click on the green play button. Make sure your computer speakers are turned up. If this doesn't work your sound card may not have recording capabilities or you may have your mic plugged into the wrong connection on your tower. You can move the mic to a different connection and try recording again. Just don't plug into your speaker connection this could damage the microphone. You can check to see if your sound card has recording capabilities by competing the following On your desktop click on start - control panel - sound, speech, and audio devices then click on sound and audio devices. When the small Sound and Audio Device Window opens, click on the audio tab. Under the title sound recording, you should have a sound card listed in that field. For example my card is a SoundMaxDigital Audio. The field is right next to the small microphone icon. If there is no card listed you can buy a cheap one online or even at Wal - Mart. They are very easy to install. You just find an empty slot on *********** board and your computer should recognize the card.

In addition to the instructions below you may need to make sure you have selected the right sound source (normally WAVE) in your recording program
a microphone with computer
To use any microphone with your
computer you will need to enable it in control panel. The following
instructions are for Windows XP but are broadly similar for Vista
Click START, CONTROL PANEL, SOUNDS
& AUDIO DEVICES
In Sounds & Audio Devices
Properties window locate SOUND PLAYBACK box. Click the VOLUME button. Make sure
that there is not a check-mark in the MUTE box against microphone in the list
of devices and that the volume slider is at the top of the scale.
Make sure the MUTE ALL box isn't
checked before closing the window.
Now click the VOLUME button in the
SOUND RECORDING BOX. Here SELECT microphone as an input source for recording
(as opposed to un-checking mute in the playback controls).
NOTE if your microphone
is not listed in the 2 sets of volume controls click OPTIONS, PROPERTIES
on the tool-bar and place a check against microphone in the list
entitled 'show the following volume controls' and then click OK. Same
applies for Internal mic.
That should be it.
To adjust audio volume generally.
Under VOLUME tab adjust Device Volume
as necessary. Also (under Loudpeaker Settings) click Speaker Volume and adjust
slider to suit.
You might put a check mark in the box
to show the volume control on the Task Bar so you can go straight to it to make
adjustments in the future.
