Mic input

Recommended Posts

I am using the mike input on my Laptop computer and I am not getting good recordings. I purchased a preamp and that has helped the output when I pay through my speakers but not the recorded music. the music is low nad echos and sound like it is coming from about 200 yards inside a cave, it deadens out at points. any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. I use the Cassette ez part of the SW and it worked great, but I am currently very disappointed witht he vinyl. IF it is user error plase advise what I can do..

Hello Jim: I don't think you will get much joy trying to use a mic jack for record input. I use a Behringer UCA202 "dongle", connected at one end to the Tape Out jacks of my receiver, and plugged into my computer via the USB cable. I consistently get outstanding results.

 

 

Hope this helps and good luck. Have a great day.

 

Regards,

-Phil

Phil, Thanks much for the information. I have one on order and will post how it works once I set it up..By the way do you still need the preamp with this tool?

Jim: Yes, you do need an amp for best results. Many turntables don't put out enough signal. I have my turntable connected to my AV receiver, and then I connect my Behringer UCA202 to the "TAPE OUT" (Line Out) jacks of the AV receiver. I get great results.

 

 

Let us know how you make out. Have a great day.

 

Regards

-Phil
