Q: Solved: Cannot record sounds other than microphone input

Hi, I hope this is the correct place for this!

I'm trying to start an LP series on Youtube but I'm having difficulties. I am recording with Fraps, and it records my voice fine, but not my game sounds (or for example, if I'm in a Skype call, it will not record the voice of the other person). I have tried messing with every setting I can think of messing with and I've been agonizing over this for months. I just can not get it to work.

I thought it may have had something to do with having onboard sound, and was going to buy a sound card, but now I'm not sure. Next I thought it could be related to my using a USB headset, so today I bought a proper microphone and some speakers. No luck, plus when I play Minecraft the sound coming out of the speakers is scratchy, screamy, and horrible. It sounds like the devil is in my speakers - and it's only Minecraft that does it (as far as I can tell)

Does anyone know what causes this? Is it some kind of XP limitation? I really need to get this working. I'm at a loss! Thanks for any help.

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Suddenly and out of nowhere my microphone has started transmitting system mix to the microphone output and no one can hear me. I've uninstalled audio drivers and reinstalled them to no avail. I have been using Realtek drivers and I have absolutely no idea what to do next. Please help!

A:[SOLVED] Computer Sounds being transmitted through Microphone output, not microphone

Are you plugging into the Back Pink audio jack of the computer not the front? Open the RealTek audio control panel in the Task Bar or in the Control Panel. Here you can adjust the Mic and test it.

When I try to record, the oscillating line doesn’t oscillate. Some time ago, I did record something through my mike and have a wav file with the recording. I can play that through my sound recorder. I went out and got a new mike but that wasn’t the problem. The device manager says that my sound cards are working and I can play various wav files on the sound recorder. Any ideas? Thanks, grandpaw

Hey everyone, this is my first post (and hopefully my last ).

Ok, I'll start. I'm into games, namely half-life mods, and I use voice communication a lot. Recently my computer... blew up... so I had most of the parts replaced, and upgraded in some cases. The thing is, no matter what I do I can't get my microphone to work anymore. It's a cheapo labtec headset, but I'm pretty sure it's not broken. It wasn't plugged into the old computer when it blew up either. So I think we can rule getting a new microphone out.
Here's some details: I'm not that good with computers, but I think when I got the parts replaced we switched from using a sound card to "onboard", or something like that. Basically, the holes where I'm supposed to put the microphone jacks migrated from the bottom of the computer to the panel where I plug in my keyboard and mouse. I went down from 4 holes to 3, but I still have a pink one for the microphone so that shouldn't be a problem either.

Here are the stats if you need them:

AMD Athlon xp 1800+
1.53 GHz
256 ram
Geforce 4 mx 440
Windows XP (professional I think)
Labtec headset

I scoured the forums for hours and I tried basically everything, driver updates (says I have the best drivers), unmuting everything, fiddling around with settings, etc. Nothing works. There is one difference in my case I think, and that's when when I go to "Sound and Audio Devices Properties" under the "vo... Read more

Hey, first, let me thank you for being here. I love being an independent artist and enjoy the challenge of doing a lot on my own, but I appreciate the time to reach out for help and this is definitely one of those times!

I'm supposed to be able to record right into my laptop, HP DV8130US. I've tried two different mikes - the one I'm using now is a SHURE Beta 58, and am using a Mackie micro series 1202 8 track mixer to go into the laptop. I was using a cord with an adapter to go from mixer to laptop, but Friday purchased one with an 1/8 inch on one end and a 1/4 inch on the other so I wouldn't have to deal with funky things that can happen with adapters.

I use Audacity as the recording software. I also have Soundforge XP that I tried earlier.

The bottom line is no matter what I do, I can't record a clean sound. There's static, loud crackling noise, and a high hum at times.

Yesterday I went out and purchased the external Sound Blaster Live 24-bit. The high hum isn't there but everything else still is, albeit slightly lower in volume.

There really isn't that much difference between going through the external card or my laptop card though...not enough to justify the purchase of the external card.

Now, earlier this week, my music partner took his DAT player out of his studio, set it up in my house and we plugged the mixer into that. The recording was great. Problem is to get the data off that, we have to put it back into the rack in th... Read more

A:Solved: Trying to record into laptop with microphone

audio recording chain has lots of potential for problems
"static, loud crackling noise" sounds like you have a level mismatch and are overdriving the sound card and "a high hum at times" is most likely a 60 cycle ground loop (very common when trying to interface "professional" gear to "consumer" level gear and to computers in general). Most computer soundcards, even supposed "high end" cards are made predominantly for hooking up multimedia speakers and gaming, not actually pro audio recording.
also, dirvers could be an issue with your software-to-hardware communication

there are fixes for these many issues, but best bet if possible, is trade the mackie mixer for or buy a "pro" audio interface, designed specifically for recording. there are many good USB models that can be ...bus powered from your laptop, are very portable and have decent mic preamps, zero latency monitoring, headphone amps, etc as well as "pro" drivers options that are designed and tested for your application.

some excellent products are made by M-Audio. I use these myself with great results
see here http://www.m-audio.com/index.php?do=products.list&ID=mobileinterfaces

you can email me personally if you want info on where to find great pricing and after sale support.

I have a few cassette tapes I would like to put on disc.
I have connected a tape recorder output thru the mic input and can hear it very well.
But am at loss on how to record it to a Disc, Any suggestions?

A:record from mic input?

If you have a stereo tape you need to use the Line In instead of the Mic in which is only mono (it has a stereo plug but the ring is +5V DC for a computer mic).

You "record" the songs to the hard drive, saving each one as a "wav" file (not MP3). Then using a CD burning program you create "audio" discs (not MP3 discs).

The free (and popular) "Audacity" program will record and save files. The free CDBurnerXP will burn to discs (much better than the Windows Media Player burning). Only use CD-R blanks. Do not use CD-RW blanks.

You may have to set "Stereo Mix" as the default Recording Device for Audacity.

It shows the microphone is enabled, the sound levels are set to maximum but it doesn't pick up any sound. She has tried plugging the micrphone into her keyboard and it works OK in that. The only thing I can think of is the adaptor I bought as the microphone plug wouldn't fit into the jack on the pc. I'm not sure if that isn't working or I've bought the wrong type?

Well 2 quick questions, number one is it turned on? You would be surprised how frequent of a problem that is haha. Number 2, is your microphone plugged into an input on your pc. It may be plugged into an output. Also have you installed any drivers that came with the device. Often times the driver that is preloaded is incorrect and not compatible with what you are actually trying to use.

If I click that speaker on the taskbar, right click -> sound -> recording -> show disconnected devices.
Then the stereo-mix is not on that list

A:Can not record sound (only with microphone)

You didn't provide any system specs but it appears you want to record streaming audio from the Internet or "what you hear" on the PC speakers. In order to do that you need to have the "System Mixer" function and that function selected as the default playback device. Unfortunately some new PC's do not have that function and in those that do not - SOMETIMES updated sound drivers will take care of the problem and in others it's just not available.

To see if your system has the System Mixer, go to Control Panel/Hardware and Sound and finally Sound. In the Sound panel click on the Recording tab. If the System Mixer is shown, select it as the default playback device. If it is not shown, RIGHT click in an empty area in that panel and then select both Show Disabled Devices and Show Disconnected Devices. If you are lucky the System Mixer will be one of those devices and you can then select it as the Default Playback Device.

How do i setting to record the both StereoMix and Microphone??
Anyone help me please..

A:How to record both Stereo Mix and Microphone

If you have stereo mix, any input should be heard on the PC's speakers and also any input should be available for recording.

For example if you want to record your voice with a music file, you should be able to do both at the same time. Computer mic's are only for spoken voice and not singing. I you want to sing you would need a better quality USB mic or if you use a standard P.A. mic it will need a preamp as the mic level is too low for PC sound card. You won't be able to split the voice on to one track and the music to another with the PC's sound device.

If you want to record voice on one track and music (or whatever) on another track you will need a recording interface device, such as a USB connected two channel unit. e.g. a Focusrite Scarlet 2i2, or some other similar device.

As a side note, the "CD audio" standard (and wav file standard) is 16 bit 44.1Khz, not the 24 bit 48Khz you show. If you have a 24 bit/48Khz recorded file, it would have to be converted to 16 bit/44.1Khz if you wanted to burn an Audio CD. I have a recording studio using Sonar X2 software.

Just needing advice.

I do not if maybe its too many USB sound devices affecting my recording software.

When it was just my desktop mic, wave out mix was available.

But now I have a Samnson C01U and a Logitech Webcam to help out with voice acting and other ventures.

But I am actually about to start doing a podcast.
But I need help making my PC be able to record input from myself, and record input from people on a Skype Audio conversation.

But instead of just recording on my own comp, using a service known as uStream which would stream the input and output live as well as record it, of which the recording would then later be uploaded to podomatic and itunes later.

But ustream will not allow me the wave out mix option, even though it is there, and I do not want to use my mic to record everything being on speakers as I would prefer a crisper sound.

Maybe my sound card is too old? Or many too many audio devices (i.e usb mic and usb webcam) or what?

I've been trying to record internal sounds from my desktop (youtube, internet etc..) into a DAW (Reaper, Audacity)

I right click on the 'Rec. Playback' icon (IDT High definition audio codec), and I click 'Enable', and it is now the default device.

As I understand, this should now mean the computer is ready to record internal sounds. The first problem I see is that the signal bar next to the Rec. playback icon does not register any signal when I play a youtube video.

3. Right click on your microphone and enable it and set a a default device (mine is a Logitec Pro 9000 webcam microphone, and I've set it as the "default communication device"

Here's the secret part:

4.When you click on your microphone then click on the "properties" button, and then click on the "listen" tab, and then click on "listen to this device"

Make sure you disable the Microphone/Line in by right clicking on it. As far as I can tell you can not have this enabled. It should read "Currently disabled" if you are doing this correctly.

Now you can hear your mic through your headphones and hear music playing through the Rec. Playback at the same time, and you should be able to then record or use it with any program to simultaneously play/record microphone and music.

I use it to broadcast my webcam with music and microphone at Don Browne - Florida on Justin.tv and it does work for that and should work for your use. (There is an slight echo heard through your earphones when you are using the mic but it does no... Read more

What driver is installed in device manager (type device manager in search>go to sound). Is the driver there? does it have a yellow triangle on it? Are there any other "unknown" drivers?

All right, I'm trying to record both the stereo mix from my computer and sound from my headset's microphone at the same time. I'm using a headset with a headphone and a microphone plugging-in thing, but I only plug in the microphone one so the sound still comes out of my computer. I followed this tutorial from these forums:

This should work for any Window 7 system having the seeming lack of a stereo mix capability.

2. Right click on Rec. Playback and enable it.

A:Unable to record both stereo mix and microphone

I don't know about the Microphone/Line In. I don't have that. I do have a mic and if I plug in a mic, I will hear it in the PC speakers or if I plug something into the Line In I will also hear it on the PC speakers. I also have Stereo Mix which is set as the default recording device, and if I want to record either the Mic or Line In, I can select the Stereo Mix and I can record. This would go along with the info you got, except for the Microphone/Line In, which apparently is in the Dell laptop, except I do a lot of support on the Dell forum and don't recall ever seeing that on any Dell.

I am using Camtasia to record a video. I do not have the option for stereo mix. Is there any way I can record my microphone and my computer audio out (I am making a tutorial for FL Studio) so the video gets my microphone and the FL Studio audio, and i can still hear the audio?

A:Record Microphone and Computer Audio Out?

The free, open-source Audacity is a very popular sound recording and editing program. It can record your speakers and mic input.

You can use it to record the sound and your voice, and put it together with the video. If it cannot record both simultaneously, record only the speakers, put it with the video and add some narration in your own voice.
