I'm looking for sound effect program.I had program 10 years or so , I think it was sound blaster live ( not sure) had some thing similar .Want I wont is program that will add sound effect to sound coming through my computer speakers or headphone. The different sound effects that make your voice sound deep ,less muffled voice, tunnel ,echo ,slow talking ,sound like you talking in small room ,car or out side.

I wont it for both music/sound/audio streaming from the internet and music/sound from the computer , I have on the computer.And be able to go in setting and turn it or off or add or remove effects.

I'm not sure but I think it was sound blaster live I had ,that had some thing similar to add effect to sound coming through the computer speaker or headphone.

Note I have windows 7 .So some thing that works with windows 7.
 

A:I'm looking for sound effect program , sound coming through the computer speaker

Creative (ie: Sound Blaster) has had that type of setting in their software for years. The Creative/Sound Blaster software is for their chipsets only. There could be a similar audio tool that works with any audio source, but I'm not familiar with any.

Hey,

If this is the wrong forum for this question then I apologize in advance.

I'm having some problems when I try to record music.

I have my microphone plugged in, but whenever I sing/play into the microphone, the sound only comes out from the right speaker. Therefore, when I mix my songs using my software, the sound is still only coming out of the right speaker, which is very frustrating. This also means that if I listen to my songs on my iPod, the music is only coming out of the right headphone.

If I listen to songs from CDs or whatever, or just any other sound on the computer, the sound is coming out of both speakers simultaneously as is normal. I only have problems when I am using my microphone.

I am using Windows XP (2002 Home Edition) and Realtek HD Audio Manager. My speakers are ViewSonic Speakers, which entails a subwoofer and two smaller speakers (the left and right ones). I plug my microphone into the blue 'Line In' port at the back of my computer rather than the pink 'Microphone' port, because this is what works best for the recording/mixing software I am using, but even when it is plugged into the 'Microphone' port I have the same problem.

Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks very much,

Tim.
 

A:Sound problem: Mic sound only coming out of one speaker

Either the Microphone cable is not plugged in correct.Try not to plug it in all the way/or push it in further. Sometimes you have to play around with it to get them to work. Or you might have the balance on the microphone on one side which is a setting in the Sound Icon. Double click on The Icon and then options and then on Properties. Make sure There is a check mark next to Microphone and then click OK. You should see the Microphone settings on the screen and make sure the balance is in the middle. If none of this works you might need a new Microphone.

I have an MSI 785GTM-E45 Mother Board. I have no sound coming from the speakers. Tried new speakers and still no sound. If I click on the speaker Icon on the bottom right it shows the speaker graph going up and down as sound is being produced. I tried the head phones and nothing coming from them either. I tried playing a CD and nothing from there either. I first noticed it when I was trying to play something from YOUTUBE and thought it might just be the site but then I tried off line as well. I am running Windows 7 Home Premium. This is the first day that I have noticed it. Thanks for any help. I have checked all the settings I can think of but probably have missed something somewhere.

A:No sound from speakers but showing sound graph on speaker control

Go to the Control Panel/Hardware and Sound and finally the Sound Panel. In the Playback section, set your "Speakers" as the Default Playback device (if it's not now set). Then see if you have speaker and/or headphone sound.

You can do this to exclude device driver from Windows Updates
 
Open a run box (Windows key + R)

Then click on Advanced System Settings

 
You should have a windows with Tabs / Go to Hardware TAB and click on Device Installation settings

 
Now click on "No let me choose what to do"
  Never Install driver software from Windows Update then save changes.
 
Hope this helps

I recently baught a Toshiba Satellite p200 1-FC laptop, as soon as i started it up there was already one problem, only the left speaker works. I've tried going into properties making sure the right speaker is unmuted and made sure both speakers are balanced but still no sound from the right speaker. When i actually test my speakers, where you would expect there to be one sound coming from the left speaker, then that stops then there should be another sound in the right speaker shortly after, i get BOTH sounds coming from the left speaker. I get a loud tone the first time, then a quieter tone but still audible again in the left speaker. So my assumption is that the sound that is supposed to come from the right speaker is in the left aswel. This causes problems when i play my music because instead of sharing the sound between the two speakers, they are both being played through just the left speaker which causes crackling in sound and distortion.
Ive tested the sound when i put headphones in, and both the left and right ear speaker works, just not when i try and play from the inbuilt speakers.
I have a realtek HD audio card, any help would be appreciated

I wanted to raise 2 issues here actually. Long story short, sound is only coming out of 1 of my 2 speakers. It may help to know that I just got it back from my software friend today who had fixed my PC which had a scrambled IP address. Now it gets kind of complicated but I will try and make it sound as simple as possible.

A few days ago I went on my PC after my brother was using it for a while, and when I went to play music I got a message saying there was something wrong with my sound device, and that it wasnt properly installed. I tried everything basic, but to no avail so did a system restore using a program reccomended on here called ERUNT (as my normal System Restore does not work for some strange reason). After doing the restore, my system restarted and not only did the sound problem not get fixed, but my internet had once again scrambled. There was something scrambled with my IP address as this happened to me once before as well. I gave it to a friend of mine to fix and he did it well, but I just noticed that the sound is now only coming out of one speaker. I have checked the basic volume settings and the balance and volume of all aspects is even and in good setup, so I think it could be a hardware issue but definitely also able to be some sort of issue with my PC settings or what not.

Any help really appreciated. THANKS IN ADVANCE!

A:Sound only coming out of one speaker!

Oh and sorry, my other issue that I wanted to bring up was this ERUNT backup program which made my initial problem worse. Like basically, what the hell? I'm thinking I should just delete this program as it seems its no good to me. It didnt help much, and actually just made the problems on my PC worse with its backup restore.

I have an ASUS A7N8X Deluxe motherboard. My problem is sound only comes out of one speaker in a 2 speaker set up. Nothing fancy just a 2 speaker set up. Used to get sound out of both speakers and then had to store computer to make room for some painting. When reattached speakers to computer, sound only comes from one speaker. I tried another set of speakers with the same result.

A:Sound from both speakers coming from one speaker only

If only speaker is working on your laptop, it is possible that the right speaker itself on your laptop could already be failing and needs to be repaired. Since you tested the sound by using a headphones and the left and right works properly that means there is no problem with the driver. So my suggestion is send your laptop for repair and have the right speaker replaced.

Friends, I am facing very strange problem with my laptop. I have lenovo g500 with Windows 7 installed in it. I am facing trouble with sound of this system. When I starts my Machine some times sound stops working.

To get sound back I used to uninstall sound drivers and reinstall those drivers and after doing so sound starts working.

After some time I discovered that by disabling/enabling Bluetooth/wifi sound starts working again.

Here is the screen shot of Drivers installed for my PC.

One more thing,,,, 3, 4 months before I had not installed these sound drivers. I was using sound drivers that were by default at the time of installation. There were only two drivers named as "High definition audio". But due to these drivers my speaker input pin was not working. So I downloaded new drivers from lenovo website.
I hope You understand what I am trying to say. Please help me.

I know the description is strange but this this the only way i can describe it.

Just no sound out of the one speaker. I'm still able to hear audio playback throuhg my bottom speakers, headphones, HDMI, etc.; it's just the speaker on the top of my computer directly below the monitor that is not working.

Hii pls help. Im having difficulties with the sound on my pc.

Speaker type: microlab x4
Sound card: creative 5.1
OS: Win7

Creative 5.1 driver installed + realtek HD audio driver R263 installed.
When creative 5.1 driver is chosen as the default device, sound is coming but not from woofer and front speakers.
However when i play blu-ray movies (both on media player and vlc) sound is coming from all the speakers as opposed to sound coming only from the rear speakers when i play song from media player and youtube.

When realtek is chosen as the default device no sound is coming.

Hope you guys can help me out. thanks a lot.
 

A:No sound coming (realtek sound driver)

Creative and Realtek are two different audio chipsets. Most likely, you have a Realtek audio chipset on the motherboard and a Creative Sound Card installed.

The rear speakers working and the front not working, likely indicates a cable connectivity issue (ie: the output cable(s) of the sound card to the speakers) or possibly a speaker configuration issue in the audio setup.

Simply switching the default audio chipset won't help. YOu would also need to change where the cables are connected.

Hello everyone,

I have a strange issue with a Sony Vaio VGN-SZ71VN Notebook. Every time the Wireless switch is turned to the "on" position, the right speaker makes random noise. Turning the wireless to off makes the sound go away. Here is what I have done so far:

- sound driver newly installed
- Audio daughterboard replaced
- Speakers replaced
- Wireless card replaced

Even after all of these pieces of hardware have been replaced, the issue still remains. The speaker consistently makes a short scratching noise after the wireless switch is turned to the "on" position. I had the idea that the wireless card may be interfering with the speakers, but even replacing the wireless card made no difference. Does anyone have an idea what could be causing this ghostly issue?

A:Random Sound coming from right speaker when switching wireless switch

Wi-Fi is a known potential cause of noise in audio. If you browse the Sound section of the forum you will find many posts about noise, popping, crackling, etc.

Run the DPC Latency Checker and see what that shows, both with the wi-fi on and off.
I suspect with wi-fi on you will see spikes.

For even further, in depth, Latency diagnosis, run the Resplendence Latency Monitor.

Hi, I have had my Lenovo G500 for over a year now and really enjoy using it but there's one thing that bugs me and that's how unclean the panel on top of the speakers is. Does anyone know how I can remove it so I can properly clean it, I have tried all other methods and don't want to risk damaging it by forcing it out with a screwdriver.   Thanks.

A:Lenovo G500 how to remove speaker pannel?

hi BitNothing,
 
Welcome to the Forums.
 
The panel on top of the speaker in this image is attached to the Top Cover. To remove it, you will need to follow page 51-54 of the HMM.
 
More info:
G500 Disassembly (skip to 3:05 on how to remove Top Cover)
 
Alternatively, you can also use a can of compressed air to clean the speaker panel but it will not be thorough as removing the Top Cover.
 
 
Regards

A:Lenovo G500 - Left speaker not working

Welcome to the Lenovo Community !
 
At this point the problem could be hardware or operating system related. 
 
If you plug in a set of headphones is the sound present in each ear?  If no, then try reinstall the audio drivers to see if that corrects the problem. If yes, worse case scenario is that either the speaker is dead or the speaker cable is no longer fully seated in its socket.

Hi, I've been searching google thin and tried numerous fixes and nothing so far has worked. I just bought an used Lenovo ideapad u410 and a week later the internal speakers suddenly stopped working. External/headphones still work flawlessly, but the internal speakers won't make a sound. So far I've tried these things:Updating drivers manually.Deleting drivers and let windows update them itself.Deleting drivers and installing the default windows drivers.Checking the internal speakers is set as standard, not muted and that the jackstick isn't stuck or jammed.Restoring the computer to factory settings.Restart audio services.I probably tried some other stuff too that I forgot. When I got the computer there was windows 10 installed, so I tried to do a clean install of windows 8.1. This made the sound come back for a few days, then it disappeared again like with windows 10. I then tried upgrading back to windows 10, didn't work. Rolled back to 8.1, didn't work. I'm considering doing a clean install of windows 7 at this point, because I'm desperate.At the momemt I got 8.1 installed and I have tried installing and deleting the drivers numerous times, with no success.Anyone got any ideas as to what I can do next besides doing a clean install of windows 7?

A:Lenovo u410 no sound from internal speaker

If you right click on the speaker icon in the tray and select playback devices, do your internal speakers show up there with a Green check mark, and if not, if you right click in the Playback window and select Show Disabled Devices and Show Disconnected Devices. do your internal speakers show as disabled?    If so, right click on them and select enable and then set them as the default.     Also try disabling the other playback devices (unplug them too) to see if that helps. It sounds like yoiu may have already checked that, and it is not the issue, espeically since it sounds like (no pun intented) ,that you have restored the system, but it never hurts to check.  Drivers and software aside, most sound card jacks mechanically mute the internal speakers when an external jack is pugged in, so perhaps the jack itself is broken and is not switching back to the internal speakers when the headphones are unplugged.   .

Hi I just got a new Lenovo Yoga 710 14IKB today and i've been noticing that sometimes when I'm watching video's on Youtube the sound only starts playing after 5 seconds. So the video is already playing but the sound starts at 0:05 (the delay is always the same amount of time). I don't have this problem with every video, it seems to be a random thing and it only happens when watching videos on speaker, the problem does not happen when I'm listening through my earphones. It's not a major problem but it's still quite annoying.Is there a way I can fix this myself? I'm not realy knowledgeable when it comes to these kind of things, the only thing I know how to do is reinstall the drivers.

It's very odd. It just appeared the other day and I have no idea how I caused it. Usually that means no output device detected, but it is detected and sound works.

Hovering over the sound icon it says:

Volume: 100
Speakers
Realtek High Definition Audio

The volume control won't display.

Hello Sorry If this is in the wrong place but I couldn't find a board for IdeaPad 700. I've had this laptop for a decent while (almost a year) and although it hasn't really bothered me much in the past, it's really starting to bother me now as I'm now usually in an area with more people (libraries, lecture theatres etc.). Everytime I start up my laptop, I can hear a constant crackling sound (which would continue until I shut down the laptop but would continue again right as I turned it back on) and sometimes a beep or two but mainly from underneath my laptop where the fans are located or where my right speakers are located. I'm not sure if it is a sound card issue or a driver issue as I don't hear anything like that through my headphones and the sound is perfect, however, the crackling noise still continues on my laptop itself. When I play music or watch any video through my speakers, the sound from the left speaker seems fine but the sound from the right speakers sometimes becomes distorted and you can hear like a quiet mumbling sound of the music or video underneath. I've also noticed that when I am using my scroll wheel on my mouse or scrolling using my touch pad, the crackling gets louder but as soon as I stop scrolling, it goes back to its "normal" crackling sound. I'm not sure if this is enough information but I really have no other idea of how to accurately describe the sound. I've also tried changing driver versions but it did not seem to work or do anything... Read more

A:Lenovo IdeaPad 700-15ISK crackling sound (speaker?)

Hi VinceZent , 
 
Welcome to the Community Forums. 
 
Try booting on the BIOS using the Novo key (item6 page6) to turn on and press a bit on the scrolling on the touchpad.
Check if same sound appears booting on another live media is available.
 
Reviewing the placement of the touchpad to the systemfan and right speakers , I think mechanically is an issue with the fan. Pressure can be done by the touchpad passing it to the fan and underlying structure including the speakers as ,maybe just a cable on the wrong place since expected that it would be silent on this model. 
 
You don't have to change on the softwares but I would encourage you giving technical support a call for in warranty service and option that you can decide on. 
 
Hope this help answer your query.
Update us how things go.
 
Regards

Hi, I've had this issue off and on since I purchased this yoga 910 over a year ago. The sound randomly stops working (not even after an update - just out of the blue) and a red x appears on the speaker icon. Clicking the speaker icon will make the troubleshooter search for fixes, but to no avail. In the past, the issue would solve itself after a few days and the sound would randomly come  back, but recently the issue has been persisting. I've tried updating the sound driver, restarting, reinstalling Windows and installing a new audio driver, but nothing works. I'm running Windows 10.

Hello all, I am having audio troubles with my Yoga 700-11ISK. It began when I noticed one day that I was not getting any sound out of the speakers. I would hear a crackling sound emitted from the speakers sometimes when I scrolled with the touchpad or the touchscreen. I do seem to be able to get sound when plugging in headphones (but the sound quality isn't good and there is static interference sound). Troubleshooting steps I have already taken: (Not listed in specific order, have retried many steps in different combinations) Static Discharge: I disconnected the AC power cord, turned off machine etc, then pressed down the power button and held for 30 seconds.Installed LSB: Conducted all diagnostic scans for hardware and software. I was not able to get sound from my speakers regardless of which sound drivers were installed. I also implemented the suggested changes to my sound settings (i.e disabling sound effects, dolbi audio effects, etc)Downloading and reinstalling all firmware/software from Lenovo: Installed up to date BIOS updates, chipset, audio controllers, drivers, etc.Inspected the internals: MOBO, wiring. Everything appears fine.Purchased and installed a new set of speakers- Just to ensure it was not a hardware related issue.Factory resetAs of today, the speaker popping/cracking sound is gone but I still am not able to get any sound. Does anybody have any additional suggestions?

I have Lenovo 3000 Y410 laptop having Windows 7 Home Premium installed on it. Realtek HD Audio latest driver is installed. But from the last 3 days, when I connect headphone through laptop, following things happen : -
1) Headphone connected popup doesn't show up.
2) Mic of Headphone connected pop shows up.



3) When I play video, sound coming from both headphone & laptop speakers.
4) When I mute sound by muting sound icon in taskbar, sound then comes only from headphone.





What I have tried?
1) Installed new Realtek HD Audio Manager.
2) Installed OS again.
3) Tried to change settings in Realtek Hd Audio Manager. But Nothing changes.

When I input headphone & mic jacks into laptop, & then check Realtek HD Audio Manager. The following image shows this : -


The green in realtek hd audio manager is for headphone & red is for mic. In the image, it is shown that headphone not connected & mic connected. But even headphone not connected shows up, sound coming form headphone.

I want to get sound from only headphone when headphone is connected. Is this a hardware problem ?

Please help....

A:Sound coming from both headphone & speaker but headphone is not detect

My Realtek HD Audio Manager has more options than yours.

Also, I notice you only have the microphone in the Recording Section of the Sound Panel. RIGHT click in an empty space in that Panel and then LEFT click Show Disabled and Disconnected devices. The Stereo Mix should be shown and you can enable that and make it the default Recording device.

Where did you get the RealTek driver that you installed? If you are not using the Lenovo supplied sound driver, get that and install it as a first step. I have a Lenovo Laptop and it has Stereo Mix and other functions. I haven't looked at the RealTek HD manager so I'm not sure what all it shows.

See my computer specs below. I feel that I might need to update a sound driver because I recently got new speakers and they only play sound from the right speaker, like my old previous ones. My old ones might still have both speakers working. And I tested the new speakers with my phone and both speakers would work, so the issue is with my computer. Can someone help me with a walkthrough on updating my drivers and/or determining the problem? Thank you

A:default sound card plays only one speaker, driver update?

First try this;
Right Click on your speaker icon on the task bar>Click Playback Devices>Right click the default playback device>select Properties>click the Levels Tab>Select Balance>move slider on both speakers from left to right to ensure they are even.

Did that work?

It might be about 1/10 of a second off but that's too much for me

For example my turntables are hooked up and the sound comes through
but I easily notice the sound is off

I actually tried to record sound
It says something about my ASIO driver is invalid
is that causing it?
I'll try to resolve it in the meantime
if someone knows how to fix that or this
thanks

A:a delay in sound coming in and invalid asio driver

Yes. You need a well coded ASIO driver for low latency. If your hardware (sound device you're using) does not support or have such a driver, you'll need to upgrade to something better.

If you have a setting for samples per buffer, you can set a lower value.

My parents gave me their old laptop and I was doing some serious spring cleaning.
I think I deleted the sound driver in the process, as I can no longer hear audio on anything,
apart from the computer's deep system "beep" and the spinning of the fan.
I tried searching the internet some, but I'm unfamiliar with drivers in general, so
I thought it would be best to ask you first before downloading loads of worthless drivers.

I'm more than happy to post any logs necessary.
Tanks in advance for the help.
