Problem recording when connected to computer

When I connect the microphone to the computer in order to record with a audio editing software, the volume is extremely low. Why? and how can I change that?

    Boosting it by 20dB is not enough, it is still extraordinarily quiet unless you are literally up against it.

In the volume control panel look for mic boost and tick the box to boost the microphone volume. It's under options properties/Advanced controls etc.

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.

Panasonic RR-US470 driver windows 8

Unfortunately, Panasonic never fully supported the RR-US470 on any 64-bit Windows OS. The RR-US470 recorder came with the Voice Editing Premium version 2.0. There is a Windows 7 update available here: http://av.jpn.support.panasonic.com/support/global/cs/soft/download/ . The documentation for the update is here:
http://av.jpn.support.panasonic.com/support/global/cs/soft/download/voice_editing21.html . This isn't guaranteed to work with Win7 x64. If you have Windows 8, it might work. With Windows 8.1, it may not work. Starting with Windows 8.1, Microsoft started to demand signed drivers and software for the x64 platform. The original software that came with the voice recorder worked with Windows 98 SE, Win2k, and XP 32-bit. See http://av.jpn.support.panasonic.com/support/global/cs/soft/connect/ve_env.html .

I hope this helps. Unfortunately, many USB connected devices are not supported with regularly updated drivers.

If you do not plan to use the transcribing feature of the Voice Editing software, there may be a slower option to transfer the recording to your computer. Connect the recorder's headphone jack to the Line-In port of the computer, using a 3.5 mm (M/M) audio cable. In the Control Panel for Hardware, go to the Sounds section. Find the Manage Audio Devices option and click on it. In the pop-up, go to the Recording tab. Check that the cable is plugged in and set this to the default recording option. (You can sometimes use the front Microphone jack. However, you'll have to make the computer recognize that you are using it as the line-in.) Use a program like Audacity, http://web.audacityteam.org/ , or any other music/audio extraction software. Set the Audio Host to record from the Line-In. Start recording then start the playback of the digital recorder's audio file. Use the computer speakers to listen to the playback. Adjust the volume settings so that the audio recording doesn't go into the red zone (too loud) or too soft. The indicator for too soft is a lack of volume fluctuation on the audio trace. After you finish recording the file, you can export the audio as an MP3 or other audio format.

I want to connect a turntable (LP RECORDS) to my G550 in order to edit and transfer music to CD using Audacity. Can I ,for example, use a USB port?

There do exist turntables with a USB port.

Or, if your turntable just has the "post-and-ring" RED and WHITE stereo audio RCA-jacks, then you need an adapter to merge the two audio channels, and to connect to the "microphone-input" socket on your computer.

Then, tell Audacity to listen to that "microphone-input", and record from that source.

I have an AT&& 1717 answering machine. I would to transfer a message from the machine to my PC. Is there a way to do that?

The only way I can see doing this is to use a recording program on your computer. Plug in a microphone to your audio input and make that the active audio input. For Windows 7, click Start > Control Panel > Hardware and Sound. Then select Manage Audio Devices. Set your microphone up near the speaker of the answering machine.

Launch the recording software and start a recording session (set the sampling rate), then press Play on the answering machine. Record all the messages until past the one you want to keep. Then use the editing features in the software to delete the early segments.

Audacity is one of the recording software programs that I use but most of my recording is from a cassette tape. I'm using line in and not the microphone.

I hope this helps.

Friends say When i speak sounds like Static any 1 know how to change setting or find it in computer. Im using Satellite Fusion

The external microphone itself could be the culprit, or its connection to the 3.5mm port could be flaky. To test the theory do this:

1 Connect an external microphone to the computer.

2 Click Start, point to All Programs, Accessories, Entertainment, then click Sound Recorder.

3 Click the Record button and speak normally into the microphone.

>>>> WIGGLE THE CONNECTION AT THE LAPTOP OR FLEX THE MIC CABLE WHILE RECORDING. Maybe even narrate what you are doing while you record your voice. "Flexing cable near mic, now near plug..." <<<<

NOTE: You can only record 60 seconds at a time.

4 When you have finished recording, click the Stop button.

5 To hear what you just recorded, click the Play button.
6 To save the file, select Save from the File menu.

>>>> If you hear crackling in the playback that correlates with your handling of the cable then bad seating or a bad cable are the problem. <<<<


Adjusting recording quality

The better the quality of the recording, the more disk space the sound file requires. Experiment to find a balance that fits your needs.

1 Open Sound Recorder, if necessary (click Start, point to All Programs, Accessories, Entertainment, then click Sound Recorder).

2 In the Sound Recorder window, click Edit, then click Audio Properties.

3 In the Audio Properties window, adjust the Sound Playback quality and volume, and the Sound Recording volume.

4 Click OK.


Your new settings take effect the next time you record.

Ive been able to record and now i cant record bcuz the screen says "no inputs..." but i can hear music thru the inputs and the lexicon alpha is selected as the input and output sourc. whats wrong????

It sounds like you have NOT connected via the recording software.
It is like the normal Windows software audio has hijacked the audio system even though it is external.

Go into your recording software and look for an option to select the Lexicon device. You did not tell us what recording software you are using.

This is not an uncommon problem with these external audio recording devices.

Im confused

The microphone may not work because of a hardware or configuration problem. To determine if it's a hardware problem, test the microphone in Sound Recorder.

  1. Click "Start," > "Programs" ("All Programs" for Windows XP) > "Accessories" > "Entertainment" > "Sound Recorder."
  2. Click the Record button and speak into the microphone of the camera. You should see the green line move, indicating the application is picking up sound.
  3. Click the Stop button.
  4. Click the Play button. If there is no sound at playback, check to make sure the correct device is selected.
    1. Click "Edit," then "Audio Properties."
    2. Make sure Logitech is listed as the Preferred device for "Sound recording."
The microphone may also be defective. To test this, try the camera on another USB enabled system.
If you can record sound in Sound Recorder, but not in the QuickCam application, try setting the Logitech Microphone as the Preferred device in Audio Properties.
Multimedia Keyboards:
A multimedia keyboard is a keyboard that has a button which can automatically control your computer volume. If you have a multimedia keyboard installed, the software for the multimedia keyboard may need to be uninstalled in order for the camera's microphone to work properly in Windows. Please contact Logitech with the make and model of the multimedia keyboard that is causing the problem. While we will not be able to assist you other than to advise to uninstall the keyboard software, it will help us determine the root cause of the incompatibility.
