  • How to record from microphone?

    Most sound cards provide the ability to receive sound input from a microphone through the sound card microphone port. This is useful for recording voice or sounds to your computer. See Also Tutorial.

  • Check your hardware: If your microphone has never worked,or it stopped working, first check the physical connection of the microphone. Verify that it is firmly plugged into the microphone port instead of the headphone or speaker port.If you are not sure which port is correct, you can check the sound card to see if it is marked (sometimes with a picture of a microphone), you can use a process of elimination, check the documentation that came with your hardware, or contact the hardware manufacturer.
  • Open Any Sound Recorder, click "Recording Wizard"button to popup "Record Wizard" dialog and customize your recording work. In step two, Select the Microphone device,adjust the recording volume for the highest possible performance.
  • Click "Record" button, and then speak into the microphone. If the microphone is plugged into the correct jack, the wave patterns on the display should move up and down. If it does not move, sound is not making it through your microphone. If the wave does move, press "Stop"button, and then press "Play" button to listen to your recording.[Goto Top]
  • How to record from videotape?

    You can get the audio from videotape to WAV, MP3, OGG files with Any Sound Recorder. See Also Tutorial.

  • Connect the left and right audio-out terminals on the VCR to the line-in or microphone terminal on the sound card.
  • Open Any Sound Recorder, click "Recording Wizard"button to popup "Record Wizard" dialog and customize your recording work. In step two, Select the Line In or Microphone device, adjust the recording volume for the highest possible performance.
  • Now start the playback of the VCR and click the "Record"button in Any Soundl Recorder. You should see a wave pattern display of the audio as it is playing. If the volume settings are too high, you see the wave patterns being clipped off and appearing to fill the recording view window. If the settings are too low, you see only very small variations in the wave pattern. If the sound is being clipped off because the volume is too high, move the line-in or microphone volume setting down until most of the volume range is displayed without clipping. If the sound is too low, increase the volume setting. Ok,here's the trick with the line-in or microphone input. If the recording effect is satisfactory, then stop the recording test by clicking "Stop" button.
  • Depending on your sound card and the volume of the audio source, you might not get enough volume using the line-in input. In this case try the microphone input, as the volume sensitivity through the microphone input is generally greater than with the line-in input.
  • OK, let's rewind the tape and start the playback from the point you want to record. Hit the "Record" button and stand by. When you want to stop recording, just click "Stop" button, and the destination sound file is there. [Goto Top]
