Recording Tutorial - Using a Sound Card Mixer for Windows

Recording with Audio Mid Recorder


  • You might be able to convert your sound card to a DirectSound-compatible full-duplex sound card by installing the latest version of the sound driver for your sound card. Contact the manufacturer of your sound card to inquire about how to obtain and install the latest version of the sound driver for your sound card.

Using a Sound Card Mixer for Windows

If you cannot locate your sound card as an input device in Audio Mid Recorder, you can use the Windows Volume Control instead.

  1. In the Taskbar tray, in the lower right corner of the computer screen, double-click the speaker icon. The Volume Control dialog box appears.


    • If you do not have a speaker icon in your taskbar tray, you can display the Recording Control directly.
    • To display it in Windows 98 or ME, click Start > Settings > Control Panel. You can then click Sounds and Multimedia. On the Audio tab of the Sounds and Multimedia dialog box, click the Volume button in the Sound Playback group.
    • In Windows XP, click Start > Control Panel. Click the Sounds and Audio icon. On the Audio tab of the Sounds and Audio Devices Properties dialog box, click Volume.
  2. You can control which sound card speaker-input controls appear in the Volume Control window. In the Volume Control window, click Options > Properties.
  3. Select the controls that you want to appear.
  4. For each speaker-input shown, you can see a Volume slider and Mute checkbox, and perhaps other controls for balance, and so forth. The Volume slider controls the loudness for that particular speaker input and Mute turns it off completely.


    • The Volume Control dialog box only sets options for speaker output and does not control recording. Do not clear the checkbox for the Microphone Mute control and turn up the microphone volume. If you do this, the programcannot record from the microphone.
  5. Click Options > Properties again.
  6. Select Recording and select all the controls. The Volume Control dialog box is replaced by Record Control.
  7. For each recording input, you can click a Select checkbox and adjust Volume slider. Do one of the following:
    • If you want to record from the microphone, check the Microphone Select checkbox.
    • If you want to record from Line-In, select the Line-In Select checkbox.
  8. If the recording volume is too low, turn up the appropriate Volume slider.


    • Sometimes you might wish to record streaming audio. Many modern sound cards present a recording input called Wave (Stereo mixer) that may work. Several sound cards also offer a recording input called What U Hear or a similar name, that records anything that can be heard over the computer speakers.
