SOURCE: no sound on my dell optiplex 330

Unless you have headphones, you need speakers, preferrably amplified speakers.
Another way the address the issue is to use a cable to connect your computer to your home stereo if it has an auxilery input (aux/cd/tape input) then all you need is a cable with two male RCA plugs on one end and an 1/8 inch stereo plug on the other end.
The 1/8th inch plug goes into your computers' sound "out" and the rca's go into the aux/cd/dvd "IN" on the stereo.
this cable can be purchased for under 10 dollars at walmart, though amplied speakers wont be much more expensive.
Hope this helps you decide which direction to go..
Regards..

SOURCE: My microphone not working on my dell xps 420 vista system




double click on the speaker and make sure that the mic does not have the mute box with an x in it.

I am pretty certain you have a card in your computer for it mentions a 7.1 speaker system.
If you put your service code in to do a search for drivers you will get the correct ones for your particular machine. Download install and reboot.
If you are not using six speakers and one sub woofer then the pink one in the back is the mic

Using a Tascam US 122 with Cubase SX, when recording vocals red light (clipping) on the Tascam and in the Cubase mixer, I need to know how to set levels on Tascam, so there will be no clipping on vocal...


Make sure the switch is set to "mic/line" and not "guitar"
Your input level will be set by the "input L" or "input R" knob, depending on which side you are using. Start with them all the way down and then sing into the mic, turning them up until you get a signal about halfway up the bar in Cubase. That should give you plenty of headroom for clean vocals.
It may be difficult to get a good sound if you have one of those cheap mics that has a "1/4" jack instead of a 3-pin XLR jack. You might want to go to your local music/pro audio store and invest in a "condenser" microphone, which is good for vocals in the studio.

Pat, the USB output on the Casio WK-210 is only capable of sending and receiving MIDI information. It's not sending any digital or analog audio. Audacity is primarily for sound file editing.

In order to use the keyboard to record onto your computer you can connect an audio cable from the 1/8" stereo mini-jack to an input on your computer. Then you can record into Audacity.

Or you can acquire MIDI recording software (ie. Logic, Cubase) and then using the USB output on the keyboard, you can control and record multiple MIDI instruments in those programs.

Hi.I just want to know if my Behringer UCA202 can give me professional sound in my home studio.How professional is it? Thank you.


It is a low cost alternative. It can be used as an interim choice until you get a true audio interface tailored for a recording studio. I use them to connect to my laptop for recording group mixes for live performances on a bus mix. It works well for that type of application. It has quality sound recording and playback at CD quality.

Cant get any sound on tv


Hello,

The only computer (or laptop) connection that carries both video and sound is HDMI. If you do not have a HDMI/DVI connector on the back of your computer, then you will have to use the VGA-composite or s-video connectors to display your PC's output on an external monitor like an LCD TV.

On both my HP and Dell laptops the display settings (Start/Control Panel/Personalize/Display Settings) allow two modes - single or dual monitor mode. Single monitor mode allows me to switch between any one of three possible video outputs - VGA-composite, S-Video or laptop screen, or a split-desktop (display spread over two separate monitors). Dual monitor mode allows the same display on any two of three possible video outputs.

Switching is performed using the fn keys on the keyboard (fn key plus the F2, F8, etc. function key with the display marking). You guys use single monitor mode until you figure out what your are doing. Select VGA-composite or S-Video.

Non-HDMI sound to your TV monitor or sound system must be obtained from your laptop's Headphone or S/PDIF jacks. Headphone is stereo and S/PDIF is 5.1 surround sound. Headphone is electrical, but S/PDIF may be electrical or optical (laser light). You must set the sound jack that you intend to use as the default on the PC control panel (Start/Control Panel/Sound).

None of these connectors is two-way in the context of an LCD monitor - your PC cannot record a TV picture or sound from the external monitor. To accomplish this you must purchase a video converter box that converts cable TV or video + sound inputs to USB format usable by your laptop. Do this and you can turn your laptop into a Tivo recorder/DVD burner using Beyond TV, Sage TV or a variety of other software packages.

Please let me know if you have any further questions or concerns.
Thanks.

I took the advice of one of your correspondents by connecting my Sony ICD-SX365 recorder to my iMac with a simple audio cable by inserting the output jack in the recorder's slot for headphones and the input jack in the iMac's slot for microphones. I used the freeware program Audacity to import the track onto the computer and Switch to convert the file to mp3.

If you have an line level audio output on the shelf unit, you can as then the other end would connect up to your input to the sound card, if there is only a mic. input and no line input you can get whats called an antenuator, or get another audio sound card for the computer with a line level input jack.
