Windows 7: Sending audio from the microphone immediately to the speakers

Sending audio from the microphone immediately to the speakers

Does anybody know how to do this to achieve a sort of "karaoke" effect?

Thanks,

I connect my sound cards outputs to the inputs with a standard RCA cable, but I don't have any idea what you mean by "karaoke effect".

What else could you use, other than a cable?

Are you talking about singing along with the music that is playing on the PC?

What I meant by karaoke effect is having the sound go straight from the mic to the speakers like it does in karaoke.

Like direct monitoring of the input ?

You should have input level controls (these differ from record level control).
This should allow you to hear (monitor) the microphone.

Go to Control Panel>Sound>Recording, right-click on your mic, and select "Listen to this device".

Hopefully that will do the trick.

Thanks for the report. Was it the "listen to this device" that did the trick, or something else?

Hi Jonathan,

I was thinking of this solution....

If you go to Control Panel>Sound>Playback... then select Speakers and then the properties button. Select the tab that says "Levels" and you should see something like this:

Sending audio from the microphone immediately to the speakers-levels.jpg

On my system these are dual function levels that "monitor inputs" and also adjust the "playback level" of outputs. You can see I have Line-In monitoring at 33%. That means I can hear any device, (mp3 player, guitar...etc) plugged into the line input.

Do you have these functions?

Edit note, if I could've sized the window above there are several more device levels available. (subwoofer, center, rear, front...etc)
