Windows 7: Mic's audio in playback is very quiet in every software..

Mic's audio in playback is very quiet in every software..

Hi guys,

I'll list what I've already tried..

- Turning the Decibels (Making mic recording output louder but creates unnecessary feedback)
- Recording externally in a different software like Audacity and trying to turn it up (Annoying feedback because of decibels)
- Checked for driver updates etc.
-Same difference in both stereo/5.1 headsets.

I can't think of anything else. I'm on Win 7 and I can't record my voice through any of my mic's without turning the decibels to 30. Otherwise you can't hear what I'm saying. And even then the feedback is just really unpro-like haha.

Any suggestions?

Thanks.

What Kind of mic are you using? Is it a "computer" mic?

It is normal, if you turn up the microphone level and do not turn down the speakers that you will get feedback.

Hi,

Thanks for the reply,

I'm using a Roccat Kave 5.1 SS headset. The mic output whilst recording should be loud and clear. I had the same issue with Turtlebeach as well.

Are you using the ASUS supplied RealTek audio driver?

If not, install that and see if it helps. Generally, the vendor supplied sound driver is best.

Actually to tell you the truth I haven't got Asus's Realtek drivers installed. I'll install the one that you provided and see if it helps.

Thanks for your time.

It's not made much of a difference tbh, I still have increase the decibels to get decent volume. Even then there's bad feedback.
