tutorial : Record a sound with no mic!

Easy!

1)

To begin, click on "start" à the bottom-left corner of your screen, go to " all programs " , then "accessories", finally open " entertainment " to find " sound recorder "  ; as follows, even though it's windows 2000 and not xp :

In the case there wouldn't have any "sound recorder", get it 'manually' using 'run' command as we can see on this image  ( even if it's in french, you may understand by icons smile ) :

2)

[q] " nothing is recorded... help!! "

Don't worry, we'll check out the options on the edit menu.

Once in, go to " audio properties ", then "sound recording " and click on " volume " button.

Note : By the way, check if your sound card is selected

We're now enjoying the sight of the recording control of windows, here's an old example but still accurate :

Tip to find the good column to select :

Play any music on winamp or windows media player or anything
Launch the record in the sound recorder
Tick, one by one, every column

When mic line in sound recorder starts to beat, you've found!

Note :

If ever no column succeeded in waking up mic line, first, try again.
Then, if it fails again, you still can add columns by going in "options" menu and then "properties" ; in recording control. Tick as many boxes as there are.

Hapiness will surely be on that last action, otherwise, I couldn't offer anymore help...


Have fun!  wink

Re: tutorial : Record a sound with no mic!

For Mac users, Audio Hijack is invaluable. The demo version should be sufficient for the purposes of this game.

Re: tutorial : Record a sound with no mic!

That's a very nice tutorial, except that my computer lacks all but the "microphone" and "line in" options.  Therefore, I cannot record sounds without a mic.  If you have any other suggestions, please let me know.

Re: tutorial : Record a sound with no mic!

You can try this program and this program, both of which have free trials. Otherwise, search for "audio capture" + streaming or something similar in Google.

Re: tutorial : Record a sound with no mic!

Only if your mic input has a preamp. For that matter, you could also use an 1/8" to 1/8" cable, but if you don't know what you're doing you could easily create a nasty feedback loop and probably damage your sound card.

Good tip, but I think we ought to keep the solutions as simple and idiot-proof as possible or we're going to be faced with even more people asking for help. :p

P.S. - I rarely do sound in windows, so if anyone knows of any better programs to capture audio from applications (ideally freeware or shareware that's not too crippled to be useful), please post them.

Re: tutorial : Record a sound with no mic!

You can use Audacity.
Sorry, this one should have been in the help topic "Do you need a Software" but I haven't finish this one. Shame on me! But it's on the Game Rules page.


glouton in French it means wolverine.
It's small, chunky and will gobble anything up !

Re: tutorial : Record a sound with no mic!

Open up a console, and try typing:
aoss audacity

Another application is using the sound device, and for whatever reason it's not setup to mix more then one application. There are other ways to get around this, if your interested check out this website: http://www.ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=205449

If using aoss doesn't fix things post again the error message you see in Audacity (word 4 word).

Re: tutorial : Record a sound with no mic!

And nothing worked ? :blink:

Are you on mute ? Do you have the volume on ? tongue

Have you tried to use freecorder ? It's a very very simple and basic program to record sounds that come out of your speakers, it's what I use and it's free !

You can still send me an pm to explain you're probleme more in details.


I ain't no stupid...I'm just french.


Level 70 something(english)/Level 93(french) done and dusted, next ! wink
