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.

How to transfer vinyl to cd-simply-I have manual but very confusing-simple step by step needed-thank you-Al B


The popular recording software known as Audacity is a good choice for getting all sorts of sounds saved in a digital format. The easy-to-use features of this program will help you to create complex musical compositions, or just record incoming audio streams. One of the basic things you can do with Audacity is to record sound from vinyl records. Many people still keep vinyls on hand, though the production of this medium has diminished. Here are the basic steps that will help you to use Audacity to record vinyl.

Steps

  1. Get your phonograph or record player. Assemble your collection of records and make sure that your record player is in good functioning condition.

  2. Use a cable to connect your record player to the computer with Audacity installed on it. In order to record from vinyl, you'll need to make sure you have accurately connected your record player as an incoming audio stream into the microphone jack of your computer.

    • Use hardware adapters to secure your cable connection. Many older record players utilize a 1/4-sized input jack. The modern laptop computer, as well as many desktop models, use a smaller, 1/8-sized input jack. You can buy simple adapters at your local electronics store to fix this problem.

    • Make sure that your cables and adapters support stereo.


  3. Open the Audacity program on your computer. You will see the signature Audacity screen, with controls at the top, and an empty space to accommodate created tracks.

  4. Start playing the record on your record player.

  5. Hit the red circle that represents the "record" button in Audacity.

  6. Observe the sound coming into Audacity. You should see the track being populated with sound, represented by a fluctuating line as the cursor moves along.

  7. Hit "Stop" to stop the recording.

  8. Stop the record player.

  9. Repeat this process with the entire track. Reset the record player, start playing and hit the Audacity "Record" button again, allowing the entire track to populate with the sound of the vinyl record.

  10. Save your project in your desired format. Audacity supports a number of file formats for the finished product. You can select one of these when you have recorded the entire track. Make every song its own track, or simply record the entire side of the record on one track.

On the microphone setup page, it keeps on asking me to say 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, and I made sure my audio settings were correct in my control panel. i don't know why it's not working!


Check to make sure that you have connected the microphone to a microphone port. Headphone ports are identical to microphone ports physically, however they will not accept audio input. If you have verified that the microphone is connected to a microphone jack and the device still does not work, you may be using an old or low quality microphone which is not good enough to detect your voice. You might need to buy a higher quality microphone. If this is not the case, your microphone may be broken. You can check this by using a recording program like audacity (http://audacity.sourceforge.net/download/) to do a test recording and make sure that the microphone is actually recording. If none of the above seem to be the issue, then make sure you are speaking loudly and clearly. Voice recognition software is not always good at picking up your voice and you may need to enunciate your speech more, especially if English is not your first language or you have an accent. Good luck!

Microphone not working


Go into the sound properties in your control panel and then head into the recording tab. Make sure that the correct recording device is selected. At the bottom there should be a configure or set up button. Once you go through that wizard, it should be set up.

Also some programs allow you to choose which microphone to use, so go into the settings of the software and make sure the correct recording device is selected.

Have a great day.

Labtech 524 microphone does not pick up sound


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.

I downloaded cakewalk studio instruments into computer i get


Check to make sure all your audio drives are configured. Sometimes the microphone jack isn't configured with the program. No audio comes through. Another suggestion is to, try Audacity. It is a free audio recording program, and it helps to master even some of the hardest studio production software programs.

No sound coming through when recording from hi fi tape to computer


This is actually simple to do. Connect the line out on your tape player to the line in on your computer. Then download a free program, from the net called Audacity at http://audacity.sourceforge.net/. The program is totally free and works great. Some recording studios use this program. In the middle of the main Window on Audacity set it to record from Line in. This is from the small drop down menu next to the little microphone icon. Then hit the record button on Audacity and play your tape. You can record each song individually or you can record the whole side of the tape at once and separate the tracks when you save them. You can even use this program to clean up the sound on your recordings. I have transferred many of my tapes and records to CD using this process. I hope I have been helpful and good luck
