Re: Can't hear myself when recording
Hi There Try this,
Try Adjusting the vlume on your PC first. Check the volume on the Headphone too if there is one.
Using a dump clothe. Wipe the plugs with a twisting motion.
If all fails then You may have a Sound Card problem. Using a spare Speaker or Headphone check it if it works. If its not then its Defective and needs replacement. If its working then your Speakers or Headphones are defective. Try fixing them by cleaning or checking the Continuity of its cables using a analog Multi tester.
Hope This helps

Dan, You should be able to hear yourself inside your head as the small hairs that vibrate in fluid in your ear canal will pick up your vocalizations. In any case you know what you're saying and it shouldn't be a problem talking to someone. Now if you're listening to music really loud on those headphones and still need to hear yourself think, I suggest you turn down the volume. :)
Make sure you've adjusted the Mix knob correctly. The Mix knob is above the Output knob. Turning it counter-clockwise allows you to hear more of your input and turning it clockwise lets you hear more of your playback. Try adjusting the knob clockwise to get more of your playback feed.
There should be basic Operating System sound controls or proprietary software if you have a sound card. They would control mic, headphone and speaker settings among other things. It varies with the O/S. On Windows, start looking in Control Panel.
The fuzz/white noise is a little confusing and it seems to be saying that you are recording something vs trying to record incorrectly and getting nothing at all. Anyway, despite that, I would try going over your recording steps first.
First off make sure your Hi-Z input is not set to the Hi-Z or guitar setting. It is possible your that MicroKorg is overloading the input and distorting. You should however have heard that in the headphones too, so I'm not so sure that's the problem. The next thing to check is to make sure your input is assigned to the track you expect to be recording on. (Press the input's button to check this. The select/record button over the track should flash).
Next make sure your track is armed for recording before you press 'play+record' (Record button above the track should light steady when recording).
This might seem simple, but just to check: you have switched off the monitor on the track when you go to playback? With track monitor engaged, you will not hear playback, but will continue to hear the live monitor.
you should have a speaker icon in left of task bar, right click it> adjust audio properties> audio tab and check your mic headset is on the drop down list on the sound recording, if so click on it, then go to the sound playback and click the advanced tab and select headphones.
Next click the voice tab, check the voice playback is your headset and the voice recording is set at your headset and then click test hardware
when the sound device is installed it should give you sound effect manager or sound device,to access this go to START then CONTROL PANEL then SOUND SPEECH AND AUDIO DEVICE,open Sound Effect Manager,then Sound Effect,select Headphones from the Enviroment Dropdown and click ok.test this output now.
If this doesn't resolve the problem ,
reinstall device again.
