audio recording using the computer sound card

By krishnamurthi1930 ·
I am using xp pro os. When I try to record audio with mic, the input for recording is low or near non recordable level. when I select "stero Mix" of the sound card, the input from the mic is improved and I am able to record. When I use "mono mix" for input line, then the mic input is not upto recording level. What could be the reasons for this and remedy for the same. Regards,Krishnamurthi

You need a preamp for your MIC or you need to enable the built in preamp

by georgeou In reply to audio recording using the ...

There is an advanced setting for the MIC for an "amply" setting for most sound cards and you can get to that from your sound level mixer built in to Windows. Some sound cards don't have a preamp built in like my Sound Blaster Live 24. I had to use a little $50 preamp device from Archos which I also use for recording direct to my iRiver MP3 player.
