Re: Thick person about to cry

sorry to hijack this thread. I have related question. On my volume controle window< I dont have an option for line in. Only volume, wave, sw synth, cd player and imput monitor. Should I just assume it is muted. Also on your recording options window you posted. You have the line in muted, but then you have an arrow pointing towards the input volume. Should line in on recording control be muted or not?
Thanks

You have an option to select what shows on the mixers..

No, look again, it's selected, not muted.

Re: Thick person about to cry

Excellent pictures, thanks, I didnt even know about the recording parts.

however i have found that i am unable to tick the box for line in on the recoding window and the advanced features seem locked. I have checked with the realtek site and it may be that i need a different driver. Im downloading it to see if it opens up the line in part. All other widnows will replicate the settings you have shown. I will update as i go on.

Thanks

Re: Thick person about to cry

Hello again,

I have just handed in the last of my course work and the exams are all done, so i have had chance to re vist where i left off.

I did exactly as you said but I dont seem to be able to raise the input volume any where near your levels. I had reinstalled the driver and it allowed to select the line in channel on the recorder, which is a start.

what shall i do?



thanks.

Turn up the output volume to 1.000

If still not enough, turn up the receiver SPL, so the listening level is at 80dB instead of 75dB.

Re: Thick person about to cry

hi brucek,

i upped the output volume to 1.000. It had no effect on the right channel, which stayed low.



To me, that doesnt look like what i think it should look like.

Re: Thick person about to cry

Yeah, you're not measuring anything.

All the software looks setup correct.

I can't imagine what you're doing wrong except that one of your 3.5mm splitter adapters or the cable looping back between them has some problem.

I take it you're still attempting to get a soundcard cal file - correct?

Re: Thick person about to cry

Im still stuck at stage one yes,

I cant help but feel that the sound module that i am using on the board is not helping my cause. I used to have a sound card but not long back there was a thunder storm and i suspect lightening hit one of the phone lines which caused my pci modem to go bang, i actually saw it flash. From that point on i dont think any of the pci slots have worked, my grapics pci express do work though. Im tempted to get an external usb soundcard.


EDIT just found that by wiggling the jack in the back of the computer i can affect one of the readings for the loop back, i shall have to check further.

Blasted,

I don't know if this might help but I'll say again to make sure you're not using a mono jack into a stereo output...
