Just upgraded to Windows 7 and now my mic volume is so low I have to struggle to hear anything I personally record (with windows "sound recorder").
The volume is turned up to max (100) in the levels tab, I don't go up beyond +10 microphone boost because I sound distorted and robo-like.
In the advanced tab for the microphone I have the "allow applications to take exclusive control of this device" unchecked.
In the communications tab of the sound control, I have "do nothing" selected. (accessible by selecting "volume mixer" then selecting "system sounds")
Can anyone help me out with this? The only way I can hear anything is if I turn my headphones up to max, and even then it's slightly over a whisper. I know it's not my headset/mic as it worked perfectly fine in Vista, and it works as it should on other computers. I'm out of ideas as to what I can do to remedy this issue, can anyone help?
