View Full Version : Sound Problem

24-05-2010, 06:09 PM
I run a mic into my laptop. The sound level is very low.

When I access the sound, in control panel, there is an adjustment for the mic. It is set at 16 - much too low. Increasing the level seems simple enough but unfortunately, after I increase the level and then click OK (apply is greyed out) and then close the sound, then re-access the sound it has defaulted to 16.

While I can increase the volume, in post production, of the recorded sound, the quality is poor as it also increases any background noise - not a viable option.

I would like to be able to increase the volume so it stays there.

My laptop runs Vista and my sound recording programme is Cool Edit.

Thanks for your help.
