Assuming you are running windows XP you need to

1. right click the speaker in the lower right corner and select adjust audio properties.

2. Select the audio tab

3. Pull the drop down menu under sound recording and make sure it is selected to your audio driver device. Most are either soundmax, creative(for soundblaster and audigy standalone cards), realtek, or ASUS.

4. Next repeat step one but select open volume control

5. Go to options and then properties

6. Select the circle for recording and make sure your mic input is checked.

7. Close that window and recording mixers will pop up. Select the input you need by checking the box in the lower left corner of the mixer channel. Adjust the level and then use your recording program or sound recorder under Program files>accesories>communication>sound recorder.

I have a Tascam TM-D1000 digital mixer that has a TDIF output and want to connect this to my computer. Do I need a PCI 822 card or is there another option to connect?

I have a TMD1000 connected to my computer via the RCA ( Red & White) outputs on the mixer to an M-Audio 2496 Sound card in the computer.
also via the Digital out on the mixer to Digital in connector on the card.
I then edit recordings on the computer with Cubase pro.

Built in microphone not working

If this is on your pc? Go to Start, Programs, Accesoories, Entertainment, Volume controle. The internal mixer will pop up, go in to options tick recording . and make sure the microphon in the box below is ticked. Then tick ok. the mixer will change in to the recording mixer. You will then see a microphone slider on the internal mixer. Make sure it is up and that the select box box below microphone is ticked.

How to use yamaha mg102c with m audio usb

You must connect:
the mixer output to the "line|optical" input of the Transit
the mixer input to the line (in case of an analog signal) or to the optical (in case of a digital - optical signal)
The USB connector on the other side is going to be connected at the USB port of the pc.
Just keep in mind that the signal flow goes as the arrows on the Transit.
In case of a problem or clarification, don't hesitate to post.

Thanks and regards

I plugged a mic to my dell laptop but it isnt working, do i need a sound card?

No, if you have a jack to plug the mic into you have a soundcard. However the mic is probably muted in the mixer software. Go to the control panel, left click on sounds and audio, then click on the advanced button; this should open the mixer in the play back mode, at the top left of the mixer go to options and select properties, a new page will come up with a radio button showing playback or recording, switch the radio button to the recording list and check everything in the checkboxes including the mic and press ok. A new mixer should come up with your recording deviced, from here you can set your microphone device volume.

Using the dp-01 as a interface mixer

If you're asking about being able to use the DP-01s knobs and sliders to control the virtual knobs and sliders on some PC recording software the answer would be 'no'.

But if you just want to use the DP-01 to act as a mixer for incoming signals (like microphones and or guitars or other instruments) the answer is 'kind of'. The DP-01 cannot act as a usb interface for your PC, but it can sit in front of a usb interface or sound card and act as a mixer of sorts to mix input from instruments through the monitor outs and then into your computers sound cards or usb interfaces audio-in jacks. You are however limited to two simultaneous inputs though as that is all the DP-01 can handle.

Microphone can be detected but doesnt work

Go to start then control pannel then sounds and audio devices. Then in in the volume tab select advanced in the device volume section. When the mixer comes up go to options then properties select the recording option a recording mixer will come up make sure to check the microphone box. Raise the level in the ixer and you should be golden. If you want to hear the mic select playback mixer and raise the mic level. Hope this helps. : ]

I just installed my M-Audio Audiophile 2496 PCI card (it seems this is part of the Delta series of cards?) in Windows 7 (64-bit) and it successfully registered and installed the driver, but when I disable my old sound drivers in Device Manager (the Realtek ones which is the sound integrated on the motherboard) I don't hear anything and I checked the Audiophile driver settings and see no headphone or speaker devices listed like there was in the Realtek driver. I re-enabled the Realtek driver and it seems my headphone jack is connected to the motherboard so it's using the built-in Realktek sound card. How can I get sound from my Audiophile card to my headphones? Do I have to remove the Realktek drivers completely or can I leave them just disabled in Device Manager? I don't see a Headphone jack labeled on the Audiophile card. First screenshot shows the two Realtek drivers (ATI HDMI Audio and Realtek High Definition Audio) and my M-Audio Audiophile driver in the Device Manager: Here you can see how I right clicked on the Realtek driver and disabled it. I did this for the other one. After doing this I tried to play a movie and got no sound: Here is my Control Panel -> Hardware and Sound -> Manage audio devices: As you can see the Speakers (this seems to be device associated with my headphones) are showing the Realtek driver. When I disable the Realtek driver in Device Manager and then go to this same screen it doesn't even show the Speakers device any longer. BTW my headphones use a 1/8" (3.5mm) jack. I don't see anywhere on the Audiophile card where I can plug them in there are only RCA inputs and RCA outputs and the breakout cable has SPDIF inputs and outputs. None of these will accept the 1/8" jack! HELP PLEASE!
