    Just bought the SamsonG Track. No sound or very weak sound on playback even with volumes turned up on sound devices. Wizard indicates that there is some small level or recording and some small level of playback volume but neither is enough to record or playback anything.

    I have the same issue, in system preferences the output levels can be changed, but not the input levels, meaning that the mic needs to be turned up very high before you hear anything, and that gives terrible interference noise levels. I thought that maybe the new version of mac os x was the problem?

Uninstall the software and driver and then reboot your pc and then reinstall it. it sounds like a problem with the drivers.

How transfer music to nook

First in the OS make sure that recording device is USB (Start > Setting > Control Panel > Sounds and Audio > Audio). Adjust the audio recording volume, as well (Start > Programs > Accessories > Entertainment > Volume Control > Options> Properties. Click on Adjust Volume For Recording, for some versions of Windows). Unfortunately you can't directly listen to the recording on USB in this software. You would need a regular turntable with amplifier and then RCA L/R audio to 3.5 mm audio adapters. Connect this to the Line In of the computer (blue port) on the sound card. Then set the recording device to Line In and unmute Line-In in a similar way as above.

Now try recording in Cakewalk Pyro. (I recommend making a short recording and then playing it back to check the settings.) Try the Windows Sound Recorder (similar to finding the audio recording volume) to record if Pyro doesn't work. You may have a problem with the USB turntable or your USB port. You should see a waveform if the software is recording anything. Adjust the audio so that the entire waveform is consistently less than 100% of the maximum. A flat line in the center of the audio trace is a sign that there is no incoming audio signal. I usually start the software recording and then start the turntable at the correct track. Thus a flat line for a few (~10 seconds on my system) is normal.

After recording, you need to export the file or files as MP3s. (I subdivide a longer recording into tracks but that can be a pain. Identifying the "break points" is not always obvious.) Then File > Export (iirc). Select the MP3 option and the quality. I put all my music into the myusername/music/recordings subfolder (I created the folder) to make them easier to find again.

Connect the USB cable from the Nook to the computer. Access the Nook from the File Explorer. (Double-click on the Computer (My Computer) icon with Windows, it's the Devices icon on a Mac.) Then double-click on the Nook's icon (there may be more than one).

Open a second explorer window to the directory where you saved the MP3s. Then just drag and drop the files/folders to the Nook. If you put the files onto the internal memory of the Nook, make sure to put them in the My Music or My Audiobooks folders. (You can do transfer the files to the memory card without plugging in the USB cable, if you have a card reader. Just be careful not to lock the read/write switch on the card and do not reformat it.)

I've used several programs and found Audacity (free) to be just as good and straight-forward to use. However, the programs all work the same way. If the USB device isn't working (or the default recording device), you get nothing.

I hope this helps.

Cindy Wells
(I will note that most of my recordings were done from cassettes using Line-in from the headphone jack. Thus I only had to diagnose problems with the patch cable and the default recording device once I checked that my headphones worked for the tape. I saved my recordings as WAV and then burned them to CD as Disc At Once for a player that didn't read MP3s.)

Samson G-Track recording volume issue

Try using a computer with a dedicated sound card, not an onboard sound chip. A condenser mike can't provide very much power on its own, and requires power from the attached receiver/amplifier.

I am using Adobe audition 1.5 for recording my songs.. now.. i am facing big problem while using that software.. there is multitrack option available in that software. we have put karaoke track in one...

Welcome to FixYa!

I assume that you know your way around adobe audition 1.5 because I'm currently using adobe audition 3 on windows 7. The menus are different, but I'm going to give a few points that might help.

Windows Sound/Volume:
Make sure that the sound card you are using is selected, specially if you are using an additional external USB sound card (which is much better). Disable other sound cards, if any.

Adobe Audition:
One of the pull down menus located on the upper part, it has an option that says "Device Properties" or anything like that. This is where you set the input signal will be coming from and likewise the output signal.

The input signal should be the input of the sound card you selected in windows. Same goes for the output signal.

On multi-track view, check the track to be recorded. Make sure that the input is from the input of the sound card and not from anything else. The button for the setting is somewhere near the Solo/Mute/Record buttons.

If this will be set correctly, you will be able to play the song on the 1st track and record ONLY your voice on the 2nd track.

Keep me posted.

Thanks for using FixYa.

When I record a vinyl record one of the stereo sound tracks sounds feint.

There are several different causes for this issue - assuming the balance for other programs works as expected. The easiest to check and fix is the "Master Volume Control" You access this on a Windows PC by right clicking the Speaker Icon in the system tray (lower right corner of the screen). Select "Open Volume Control" Next,you'll see a box with Master Voume, Wave, CD, Wave, etc. These are the playback volume controls (shown below).
We need the Recording Control. Click "Options" --> "Properties" and select "Mixer Device". A drop down box should appear offering an choice of Input or Output devices. Choose Input. "Recording" should be selected in the "Adjust volume for" box. Place a check mark in each of the input presented. Mine looks like this:


Click OK to get to the Recording Control box below.

Here, make sure the BALANCE indicator is centered between the two speaker icons and the correct input has been selected - in this case, "Line Volume". Yours may be different. If already centered, go to the next step.

If the input levels are balanced, there may be a problem with the input cable. Try replacing the audio cables and try again. If your turntable uses a USB type connection that is molded to the turntable, you won't have this option.

If still no change, try connecting to another computer. If the problem is still present, it is in the turntable, somewhere between the last cable you can change and the stylus / cartridge. A stylus or "needle" can be replaced for under $10 or so (it's been a awhile since I priced these - so don't quote me) and simply plug into the cartridge. The cartridge is more expensive, but not too bad. Most cartridges simply plug in to a jack on the tone arm. Stylus and cartridge replacement is a do it yourself job and does not need to be done professionally - unless of course you want to have it done for you.

If none of these solutions work, there is some other problem inside the turntable. Most times, one of these steps will solve the problem. I hope this helps and good luck! Please rate my reply, thank you.

My microphone is built in to the computer but will not even show up in my recording devices. it used to work fine and now it doesnt say it even exists on the computer.

See last paragraph of instructions below re unlisted devices.

Using 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 and Win7



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.

Can i use behringer 200vmx usb to mix only with him and my pc trough usb cable,and only usb cable!!!! i have 5.1sound card, and asio driver?

Depending on the DAW software, you can record just his track at that time. Mixing can be done later with multi-track software, such as Cubase or ProTools.

There should be an extra device in the volume controls under your OS's control panel. That extra device will be your USB mic. Select this device for recording. Monitor the input recording levels BEFORE actually recording to check for clipping. When you are adjusted correctly, you should have plenty of volume, and no clipping. From there, you can modify that waveform like any other track.

Hope that helps!

Hello i have a toshiba l305 laptop and can't get the internal mic to work with any program that uses it

The Microphone might not be working, as it may not be enabled.
However, you may enable the Microphone manually by performing the below steps:
For Windows XP:

1) Double-click on the Volume Control. 2) Select the "Properties" option from the "Options" menu. 3) Select the "Recording" option in the "Adjust volume for" section. 4) Click the OK button. 5) Check the box labeled "Select" under the microphone volume and you should now be able to adjust the volume for the microphone.

For Windows Vista:
1) Right click Speaker near Clock - Recording Devices - right click in box - check 2) Show Disconnected Devices and Show Disabled Devices - check your mic - highlight them and then on lower right properties. 3) Make sure the proper one is enabled and check other settings - on Levels tab make sure MUTE is unchecked and APPLY / OK changes.

For Windows 7:

1) Right click on the volume icon in the system tray and then click “Recording devices”. 2) Right click on the blank place in the popped up window and then select “Show Disabled Devices” and “Show Disconnected Devices”. 3) Right click on Microphone and then click “Enable”. 4) Highlight the microphone and then choose “Set as Default Device”. 5) Click Apply. 6) Select Microphone and click on Properties. 7) Click on Levels tab. The default Microphone Boost is set to 0, increase it.
Hope this helps.

4 Answers emachines d725's microphone isn't please!

After downloading every possible driver and tweaking every possible adjustment I have come to this conclusion: There is NO built-in microphone on the eMachines D725! Oh, the Device Manager will show it, all right but I assure you, there is no built-in device that can pick up sound on that laptop model. You'd think that a laptop, albeit a budget on, with a built-in webcam should also have an accompanying built-in mic for messaging and calls, but it doesn't. The mic may have fallen by the wayside during the cost-cutting sessions, along with the 3rd and 4th USB ports. Your only options are to connect an external microphone or to trade the D725 for a real laptop.

Double click your sound icon in the lower right and corner of your system tray, or go to your control panel and sound options. What you need to do is enable the microphone playback feature. In your control panel go to Sounds and Audio Devices > click the audio tab at the top of the new window that opens > under default devices click the Volume button > this should bring up your Volume control panel. From there look at Microphone and make sure the Mute check box is unchecked. Then move the fader up to adjust sound. What this does is allows you to hear anything that the mic is picking up, through either speakers or headphones.
