Trouble recording audio

Q: Trouble recording audio

Hey ya so I'm having pretty much the same problem and I'm not finding anything you guys are talking about. Here's my problem. Like the rest of you I'm having troubles with recording the audio from my computer using the stereo-mix setting in audacity. This occurs only when my usb microphone is plugged in. I understand that it has something to do with changing the inputs or outputs or something I'm just having trouble understanding where those are on my computer. My setup is this. I'm running on a laptop that has windows technical preview. My microphone is directly plugged into my laptop via usb (obviously) and my headset plugged directly into the microphone. If someone could please tell me step by step where to go on the computer and what to do to fix this so that I can have my microphone plugged in and also record my computer that would be great. I know this is over 2 years old but I'm hoping someone sees this and is able to 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 (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I am surprised no one has replied to this yet, but no worries, I will do my best to help solve your problem

So from the sounds of it, you are having troubles with Audacity noticing your Microphone to record audio. Now, I have never used this program before, but from the sounds of it the only thing you are missing is setting your headset/microphone to the default in windows.

Now, I have not used Windows Technical Preview either, but based on how window's has operated since Windows Vista I am going to say it's safe to assume I could point you in the right direction to the very least.

To start, in the bottom right hand corner (Near your time) you have icons. One of them should look like a speaker, right click it and select "Recording Devices" In here you should have the option to make your Microphone the Default device.

Another way to get to this option if it's no longer accessible the way I described is to go to Control Panel, if you have the option in the upper right hand corner of the screen that says "View by:" and change it to large or small icons. There should now be one just called "Sound" in there go to "Recording" at the top.

Now in this window, find out which one is your device, easiest way is to make sure the mic is not muted (a lot of headsets have a mute button on them) and just speak into the mic, you should see the bar fill with a bit of green when you're taking, this indicates it's picking up sound. Set the "Default" to the headset you are using and then close and reopen Audacity (most of the time if the program is open when you change the default, it wont pick up on it)

let me know if any of that worked, didn't work, or you have any trouble finding what I have mentioned.

Hi - I have a RealTek HD sound card in my E-Machines desktop system (new). I'm trying to record streaming audio - basically I want to simply record what I'm hearing through my speakers. But when I try to choose that input, it doesn't seem to be there. My choices are CD Volume, FrontMic, Mic Volume, and Line Volume (see attached pic) - and FYI - I did scroll over to the right - no additional options there.

There is no "wave" or "stereo mix" input choice. Any of the available choices I've tried and they don't record the live audio that's playing on my system. Is there a plug-in or something that will allow me to do this? I just want to record the same stuff that I'm hearing. Help! Thanks -

I have the Full version of FRAPS and I thought this would fix the annoying audio problem.

The problem is there is no audio! When I record in-game videos I can't hear anything! With both San Andreas and Farcry!

I have a crappy Onboard AC'97 Sound that came with my EPOX mobo and I have a DSP-500 Plantronics USB headset, Fraps Detects both of them and I have switch to both of them in default and stereo mix, still no SOUND! I have no SOund Card, do I need one? Iam getting frustrated! I spent $37 on a peice of crap!

A:Having Trouble with FRAPS Audio recording in Movies!

I wouldn't say you bought a piece of crap, more like downloaded one. It's Frapps that is causing the issue here because it doesn't work well with USB. I have the same problem, whenever I record a game the audio never arrives. This is because Frapps puts USB ahead of all the traditional audio sound cards and jack headsets. Stupid I know.

So to solve it you have to take out your USB headset whilst playing, so you'll hear no audio while playing, but you'll get the audio from Frapps that you wanted. If you don't like this then you can buy a super cheap (presumbly rubbish) headset that uses jacks and plug that in whenever you record, this way you'll get the recorded audio and you'll hear it too, unless the headset you bought was so pathetic that your ears started bleeding in which case your out of luck. (That probably won't happen).

Hello everyone. I am using a old-ish Toshiba laptop with Windows Vista. So, every time I'm playing songs on YouTube, then open FL Studio 10, FLS 10 won't let me play or record any audio. When I look at the "ASIO4ALL" box it has A little red "X" on audio output(I use "Realtek HD Audio" if that helps). Now when I stop the internet audio/YouTube and restart FLS 10, the little red "X" is gone and all the sound works... I was wondering how to play Internet audio while playing or recording audio on FL Studio 10 is there something I can tweak with the laptop audio or some better sound program I can download free(or not free)and not have to get a new sound card??? Thank you for your time. Peace.

Hey, I recently purchased a new computer with windows 7. I downloaded a free trial od adobe audition 3 because it is compatible with windows 7. When i press record to put in my vocals the program is recording the instrumental that i have in the first track, so i cant record my vocals. When i had an xp computer this was never a problem, when i drag a beat into the first track and press record on the 2nd track it should be for my vocals and the beat is recording onto track 2 from track 1. Im guessing theres something i have to change in the recording or audio or playback settings but i am not sure what. Does anybody know what i should do?

Hi all,

I hope you can help, I'm having a lot of trouble trying to record from my Pioneer MiniDisc player to my Windows PC.

I plug the Mini-Disc player into the Line-in of my Creative Labs Soundcard, and I can actually record the sound it makes. However, the sound - even when playing (so not just on playback after recording) - is poor. It is not just of a low quality, but it is distorted and very bad.

I have tried playing with the soundcard settings, etc, but to no avail. I'm really at a loss.

Hi all, I got a new Acer 5336 laptop recently and I've been having trouble working out how to record through the mic input slot only. I've disabled the built in mic and I'm using my external one. The problem is that it's set to Stereo Mix which just picks up all the sound that's being played on the PC which is not what I'm after, I want the microphone signal picked up only.
There are no other options in recording devices even after ticking show disabled devices.

If the voice is distorted, then you have the voice volume up to high. You will just have to play around with the settings for your mic and your voice to see if it is loud enough but not too loud.

This is what I've been doing, and if you have diferent types of chord/cable connections, ya might be able to not use the equalizer.
Carry your turntable over to your computer. You don't need an amp. I take the double "stereo outs and connect them into a 1985 radio shack volume equalizer or any thing that will combine your two channels into one plug. and come out of that with one chord to computer, use a pin converter(large plug into small pin) to enter soundbourd. Don't use mic in, but try different inputs to get best input. I use music match recorder, basic, it has a volume limiter on input. You can record the whole side of lp. Then re-record this through "Audacity" its free, and get rid of snap, crackle and pop. It takes a few times to get it right, or just close ur eyes and pretend your sittin next to a fire. Take the recording from Audacity and down load to a file, latter to be uploaded to ur cd. Once in the mood and motivated, this ain't too big of a job and audacity really cleans it up. Can't remove skips though. This is totally basic and I learned how to do it through boredom. Plus nothing blew up.

A:Recording audio casette

Since you are converting from dual line-out plugs (RCA) going from the recorder to a single stereo mini-plug for the sound card's line-in jack -- confirm that the patch cord you are using really has a stereo plug on the end of it.

This will be indicated by TWO dividers -- not just one.

I think this is the most common error -- I even made it myself, although knowing better, I just did not look as closely as I should have at the patch cord I used.

Also verify that Audacity's settings are for two channel stereo -- although this is the default -- need to mention it anyway. And of course the Sound card's line-in should be present and selected as the input device.

The sound properties/help configuration of your Sound card should assist you in identifying the correct jack.

Hi so I have looked around but haven't found a solution to my problem. When I record audio it seems the microphone is cutting out at a certain sound level. So if I hold a note on a guitar instead of fading away to nothing about halfway through the note the sound drops out abruptly. It seems like maybe its a noise canceling feature but it makes recording impossible as it keeps dropping out on most notes and missing others. Please let me know if you guys have any ideas. My profile should have all the info you need. It is a mic included in the display of the laptop.

Do the program permit this? Or is it only MS MediaPlayer has this ability. I'd like to record more than 60 seconds at a time.

Any info is greatly appreciated.

I use a program called Audacity for that kind of thing. It's very easy to use, can save in MP3, wav and OGG formats, and it's free. Also, the length of the recording isn't limited from the start like sound recorder is.

AOL has a nice feature called AOL RADIO,sorta a takeoff from Satellite radio...channels organized by music type and NO COMMERCIALS. Is there a program that will record this onto the hard drive so I can write to a CD and play in the car? What about SOUND FORGE? Can it do this?

is there are way to record streaming audio for later.

i would likw to set a program to record tonight @ 2am and listen tomorrow - so simple time shift like you do with videos -

+ I also want to set it to run and capture at 2am - prodcast from a radio station..... I assume i would use the scheduler somehow..

a simple solution i guess would be to go and buy a mains timer for the radio/cassette and set it up that way.

Hey guys I ve got a few questions regarding audio recording or rather the tech involved Right now I m using a laptop asus K E biggest mistake of my entire life I want to do some audio recording but there s an annoying hum in the background I know that this is either because of the Audio questions recording fans buzzing Audio recording questions or the fact that I m using an onboard quot sound card quot hooks up straight to my motherboard I plan to do some podcasting and just some plain fun with audio recordings so I need crisp quality with no negative artifacts Seeing that this is a laptop with a warranty which I do not want to void Audio recording questions I am considering a different take on things I want to get an external sound card Audio recording questions via the method of USB or a USB mic headset I know a few audiophiles not an offensive word and they have told me that every thing related to audio that is done externally sounds a lot better than anything an onboard system could do So any tips I ve got my eye on a soundcard and a few headsets and mics tho I don t know which option to choose So the sound card Probably ganna go with the Creative X-Fi Go Pro it has a lot of nice reviews and stuff but they mainly emphasize on audio output and not input so I could be throwing in the water My second option is a USB headset or headsets I don t know any good ones so any tips would be great Third last but not least A USB mic I d like something like the Blue Snowball vanilla or not makes no difference to me So that s about it any ideas Thank you for your time nbsp

A:Audio recording questions

constant humming may be result of poor grounding. make sure you use 3-pin plug from your notebook adapter and the wall plug supports grounding. that being said, onboard aren't designed with quality in mind so it probably have some low hissing. somehow in my experience noise from desktops' onboards are way worse than laptop ones.

but if you're going to do lots of recording, I'd suggest an proper USB microphone. for the same amount of money as the Go! it'd probably have a better input quality. if you already have a good mic, try X-Fi HD USB instead.

I'm trying to record vocal audio in Apple Garageband on my Apple Powerbook with a Radioshack 33-3030 microphone, but when I record the sound is very quiet, and only seems to come out of the left speaker or headphone if headphones are plugged in. I made sure the sound input is set to use the line-in audio port. I thought the problem might have been with the 1/4" to 1/8" adapter but I got a new one and the sound was the same. Is the problem with the microphone? The computer? Thanks for your help.

A:Audio Recording Problems

I don't know how your Mac does this, but PCs have two recording sockets, line-in and microphone-in (which boosts the recording level). Do you have a microphone-in you can use instead? Your microphone is mono, whereas your line-in is stereo, this is why you're only getting sound out of one speaker, you need to tell it to record as a mono file rather than stereo.

Do I need to do some configuration to direct the speaker output to Mic ?

i did some googling and some understood that it is not possible to record audio output from speakers.

I need your suggesion..

Thx in advance.


A:Screen recording with audio.

In most cases, you need to have the Stereo Mix (also called System Mixer) set as the Default Recording device. Then whatever is heard on the PC's speakers should be able to be recorded. (The Stereo Mix is also needed if you want to record streaming audio from the internet.

Go to the Control Panel/Hardware and Sound and finally the Sound Panel, Recording Section. If the Stereo Mix is listed, enable it and make it the Default Recording Device. If its not listed, RIGHT click in a blank area in that panel then Click to Show "Disabled" and "Disconnected" Devices. The Stereo Mix should now be listed and you can enable it and make it the default Recording Device.

I've had a lot of trouble recording audio from Youtube but have achieved it after installing a new sound card and Audacity. However, some of the recordings are badly distorted and it's not a level problem. In fact I can record the same Youtube clip 3 or 4 times changing nothing and then suddenly it's a perfect recording. I was wondering if some Youtube clips are copy protected although why it works sometimes and other times it distorts I don't know.

I've been using Windows XP for a long time and using the sound control system I've been able to switch the setting sound (which was realtek) to recording and set it to recording > stereo mix. I'm just wondering if there's any way of changing that for Vista because I don't have them options, infact the only ones I can change are my microphone, my default volume settings which is no good but there's an input called "digitalin" which again, i can't change the settings to, but I'm sure this is what I can use to stream my music on an online site like stickam.

Any ideas?

A:Vista Using Recording Audio

Hi xspudx,

The "stereo mix" or "what you hear" recording function is an advanced setting that is added to certain 3rd party sound drivers, It would appear that this was added to the XP drivers you were using but not to the drivers you have for Vista,

I can only suggest that you check the supplier of your Sound card or system, for on-board sound, to see if they have a vista driver which provides the function you require.

Unfortunately a lot of manufacturers only developed basic sound drivers for vista, for older cards, ( a very relative term ), so you may find that these are not available .

Over the last year or so I have only seen one realtek driver which included this functionality so it may be a case of using a slightly older Vista driver

I want to record a radio program that runs for three hours nightly, from midnight to 3:00A.M. on the internet. The program is the classics from the "Golden Age of Radio" that I hope to copy for a senior in the hospital.

The plan is to record it as a low resolution MP3 (32 or 64 bit), burn it to a cd that would be played on a discman.

I know I have to purchase a recording program such as Total Recorder or Super MP3 Recorder.

I have tried the trial version of TR that allows only 40 seconds. It is hard to determine how large the file size of the would be. The instructions seem to be slanted more to song recording length, not three hours.

Before I buy I would like any some advice. Has anyone done this? Are there any recomendations?

I recently purchased a ASUS G750JX-DB71 laptop, and updated from 8 to 8.1
I am having one problem, most likely user error.
When I record either audio such as yotube, or itunes radio with either Sound Recorder, or Audacity. the playback is very "tinny" (low level, poor quality, very little bass) I also have the same problem with the audio on a screen recording program, Bandicam, when recording youtube, or an MPORG.
I've tried various applications to play the audio/video , with the same result. I'm not recording through the built -in mic, I checked.
An imported audio file, from my Win 7 desktop sounds fine, and an audio file recorded on the laptop, still sounds "tinny", on the desktop.
Does anyone have any ideas ? I'm reasonably sure, it's a setting I need to fix.

A:Audio Recording Issues

There have a few reports of problems with sound in 8.1 and even some recording issues due to drivers needing update. I have a recording studio and see problem posts of needing updated drivers for many recording studio devices.

Whether this is your problem? Did it work OK before installing 8.1? If it did, reinstall the ASUS supplied driver for your PC.

Have you tried recoring something with the built in mic or a line in, to see how that is?

This might be by design but most likely you have the Line-In muted in Playback volume(not the same as Recording) Open up your volume control - double click on the little yellow speaker in the system tray and go to options -> properties and make sure Line-In and MIC are selected. Then make sure the Line-in is not muted and the volume is down at the bottom in playback volume.

Note: the Playback and Recording Volume controls are for the most part independent in most cases.

Last night I recorded a DJ set, 2 channels in 24/96 and the computer failed about 3 hours into it. I?m not completely sure why. I was using a new app for recording Vegas 9.0. I have used SF 10.0 and used it to complete the night. The computer should be able to handle it. Back in 05 I recorded multiple times never an issue with a single core P4 4 channels at 24/96, 7 plus hour sets (different audio interface) .
I know there a number of professionals as well as hobbyist that might know of ways to tune a windows computer by turning off any unnecessary windows apps or other tweaks so I can have more resources for recording.

A:need to tune windows 7 for recording audio

I have a recording studio (using Sonar X2 Professional 64 bit version).

I doubt that its a Windows OS issue. Other programs running can eat into memory and CPU time but I doubt that it would cause the PC to bomb out. Either a problem in the recording program or a hardware issue would be my guess.

I had one of those low cost Rosewill cases. It didn't last long and was replaced by a much better Coolermaster.

Overheating comes to mind as the first possibility. My recording studio system is an Intel i7 3770 CPU with 16 GB of G.Skill Ripsaw RAM, but I've never used over 6GB and that was with several midi channels along with several analog audio channels. I have a Corsair H80 liquid cooler for the CPU, for both cooling and to reduce fan noise. i'm using a Coolermaster case with plenty of (low noise) fans. I record at 24 bits, 44.1Khz (which is mixed down to 16 bit, 44.1Khz CD standard).

I have the ATI All-in-Wonder 9600 Pro video card and for some reason its not recording audio. I am able to hear everything fine while the TV show, DVD or VHS is actually playing, but whenever I record something and play it back, theres no audio at all. I checked all my connections and everything appears to be OK, (and everying I've tried in the users manual just isn't working)

Has anybody else run into this? Any assistance would be greatly appreciated!

I've been trying to record some gameplay (in this case, of Batman Arkham City), and while the graphics look ok, the audio sounds sooooo bad. Here's a video I just uploaded: click here compare it with this other one: click here tried recording with Action Mirillis and Bandicam, and it sounds pretty much the same. Do you guys know what it could be?

A:recording - no audio device is installed.

Not much to go on, for system model/specs.

Have you reinstalled the PC vendor's sound driver? If not, that is the first step. If you only have "HD Audio Codec" that is just the generic basic function Windows installed sound driver, and not the actual sound chip vendor's driver.

Did the sound and recording work before installing Team Speaker? If it did, use the System Restore function and restore the PC back to an available restore date that is PRIOR to installing Team Speak.

When recording, I am only getting the right track in the stereo setting. I am getting both left and right when listening to the actual stream, but unable to record the left track. Does anyone have any ideas?

I am using Audacity 1.2.6. I have the settings at "stereo mix".

Hello, I've been trying to make videos using Camtasia, Hypercam, and Camstudio but I have come across a very serious problem. Whenever I go to the options for the first two, I can't record the system audio as it's disabled; Camstudio can record system audio though. Camstudio has horrible quality (no offense) so I wanted to use one of the other two, but I can't and have tried looking for a solution.

Here's some info about the computer:

-Compaq Vista
-Conexant High Definition SmartAudio221
-Fallen several times and has had the screen repaired
-Sound is muffled and warped sometimes
-Latest Windows Updates installed
-All disabled and hidden audio devices are visible but only Conexant is there

I've spent hours trying to fix this problem, but no progress, any suggestions?

Thanks for your time.

So i got a new headset and i found out that the sound works but not the mic.
It works on other computers but not on my because it doesnt show up grey, it doesnt show up at all even thought i did check the show dissabled or disconnected devices. I tried to instal a new upgrade for my sound but the windows 7 said that i have the new upgrade.

If someone could help me it would be awsome

Sound card : High Definition Audio Device

A:Recording: no Audio devices are installed.

Are you using the Dell supplied sound drivers? I do a lot of support on the Dell users forum and we have found that not using the Dell sound drivers can cause problems in some systems.

Dell does not support Win 7 (no Win 7 drivers) for the XPS420 however they do support Vista and the Vista drivers should work without problems. The Vista SigmaTel driver is HERE If you have anything other than the Dell SigmaTel driver, suggest you uninstall whatever you have and install the Dell SigmaTel driver.

FYI the Dell users forum can be accessed You may want to check out the support forums.
