Thanks for taking the time to read this. (screen grab included)
This kind of a two part question.
I sometimes have an issue with my microphone where it sounds terrible and stat-icky. I usually just jiggle the part of the mic where it plugs into my computer and that fixes the issue. I'm pretty sure its either the inexpensive mic I purchased or worse case scenario it's the part inside my notebook where the mic connects to. I just don't know!
As you can see in my screen shot, I keep that window open so I can know when the mic gets all messed up. When the problem is happening the meter lights up totally green, when its normal the meter is much lower.
1. Do you think it's the crappy mic connector?
2.if it is, and we have ruled out my notebook as the problem, can you recommend any software that will allow me to have a similar meter (gauge) but on the task-bar so I don't have to keep the Windows mic gauge open?
