The Samson C01U records in mono, not stereo. This is why you hear sound coming only out of one (the left) channel.

I was having this same issue for the first hour or so using this device. The quick, easy solution is to change your microphone to mono recording. In the attached YouTube clip, I'll show you how to do that.

The short and simple is to go to your Mac HD -> Applications -> Utilities -> Audio MIDI Setup. Select your C01U USB device, and set it to 1ch 16bit. This will set the microphone to record in mono, equally over both speakers.

Terrible sound when recording music in XQ


Hiya marco1ca...The recording qualities and characteristics of your Digital Voice Recorder is designed and optimally calibrated for Audible (voice) recording. Essentially, recording of sounds with peak levels that exceed a conference room of 20 or so people speaking at moderate levels will completely overun the sensitivity and be over-modulated both during recording, and during playback, as in your experience, producing unrecognizable audio. Although it supports and plays Audio files such as mp3 and WAV with ample quality, while doing so, it is only functioning as a player and not a recorder. If you would like to continue to use your Digital Voice Recorder to record live music, execution of the following Setting changes will provide you with the "best" you can get, albeit, you will still not be pleased with the recording. Our objective is to cancel as much sensitivity of your recorder, both aurally and electronically by removing and retarding all features that promote sensitivity. 1) Remove the Stereo Microphone Unit, and record using the built-in Monoraul Microphone. As you can obviously see, the individual Stereo Microphones are very close together. The method that your DvR uses to achieve stereo separation is by increasing the directional sensitivity of these microphones individually. 2) Change your recording mode from your present setting of ST XQ, to SP by; a)pressing and holding the Menu Button for 2 seconds, or until "Rec Mode" is displayed. b)press OK to enter setup. c)press either + or - until SP is displayed. d)press ok to save your change from ST XQ to SP. "SP" mode does not incur any electronic enhancement or proccessing from your recorder. 3) If applicable, change your Microphone Sensitivity Setting to "DICT" by sliding the Mic Sense Switch located on the left side of your recorder. "DICT" is the lowest sensitivity setting that your recorder can achieve. Finally, if in a secure environment, place your recorder MUCH further away. Sound is the movement of air. You are attempting to record a PERCUSSION band, which truly is the epitome of air movement creating sound. What you have been recording and hearing was not sound, but air which was digitally captured simply because there was not enough time for sound to materialize. If you would like to try an experiment to physically understand the process of sound, have someone stand in front of you and whistle a note, and ask the person to sustain the whistle while approaching you until their lips are as close to, without touching your ear. When that physical point is reached, you won't hear whistling, you will only hear air/wind. The closer you are to the source of the sound the more condensed, and electronic signal proccessing becomes overwhelmed, again, causing overmodulation and distortion. These steps are "all the resources that is available" for your specific recorder. Remember, it is a digital !VOICE! recorder, and there is no voice that is as loud, or that produces the dynamic wavelengths as a band playing. If you would still like more information regarding your Olympus DvR, their Technical Hotline Number is 1-888-553-4448. You can also email them at [email protected] Please update your post on your progress and/or if you have any further questions.....good luck my friend...chris

How do i check my microphones on my laptop


Hi Hazel,

You can check your audio devises by going to:

Start -> All Programs -> Accessories -> Entertainment

Select Sound Recorder.

This will open a small inbuilt recorder. Record your voice and play it back.

If you can hear your voice, then your microphone and speakers are good. If not, you have an issue with your microphone or the audio system on your laptop.

You may replace your microphone if you find fault in it or please get your laptop checked if you find issue with your laptop's audio system.

Hope this helps you.

Regards,
Nat

If the person cannot hear you then, either your microphonedriver not installed or not working OR the microphone is not configured inSkype.
To test your microphone then click on Start - All Programs - Accessories -Entertainment - Sound recorder. Then record your voice and then play it back.If this is OK then the microphone need to be configured in Skype.
To configure the microphone - Open Skype - Tools - Options -Audio Settings for the Microphone THEN click on Save.

Sony IC Recorder ICD B600


To transfer recordings from the Sony ICD-B600 to Windows first buy a Radio Shack #42-2497 cable. Connect the cable from the recorder headphone jack to the computer microphone jack. In Windows XP follow the path: start, All Programs, Accessories, Entertainment, Sound Recorder. This small window will allow you to record 60 seconds of sound to a file. Get Article #82215 from the Microsoft web site. It will tell you how to make extended recordings. I was able to record 45 minutes continuously. The recorder is turned on by moving the 'HOLD' switch down. The recorder is turned off by moving the 'HOLD' switch up and waiting 2.5 seconds. Have fun.
