  1. Audio stuttering when the same application is using microphone


    Hi, on my work laptop I encountered strange problem. I have bought radiofrequency wireless headphones. When I am listening to music on youtube everything is fine but when I join conference call, audio output start to stutter. I discovered the problem is only when the exact same application or some other application is using microphone the small microphone icon is visible in the taskbar. I dont have this problem on my personal laptop. What should I check ? I already tried troubleshooter and resolved nothing.

    :)

    Audio driver conflict causing stuttering?

    Hi Techhelper89,

    Unfortunately, I did the instructions as mentioned in the thread and the stuttering persists. I used the link provided: and the steps requested

    http://www.tweaking.com/files/setups/tweaking.com_windows_repair_aio_setup.exe

    I also tried reinstalling the Realtek Audio drivers as suggested by the thread to no avail.

    I've also added some links of how the stuttering looks and sounds like to the main post of this thread. I hope it helps identify the issue.

    One more thing I noticed after the above steps is that I can boot with Nvidia HD Audio drivers disabled but the stuttering persist. Enabling then disabling "cures" the stuttering for a while. Although, when this is happening while the Nvidia Audio drivers are
    disabled (as there is an enable option) the icon doesn't look like one that is normally disabled (with a small circular arrow down icon).

    Cheers,

    Ben

  3. Windows 10 problem - microphone too quiet.

    Hi,

    Thanks for replying.

    Pleas follow the steps to run Microphone troubleshooter.

    • Type troubleshooting in search.
    • Open it and click on view all on left side.
    • Find Recording Audio and run it and check if it helps.
    One more thing I would suggest you to check in program and features if you have any sound or recording application installed by Lenovo.

    If yes I suggest either disable it or remove it and check if it helps.

    Hope this helps.

    Regards,

    Anusha

    Audio stuttering when the same application is using microphone

    Mono audio (ease of access) plus Listen to Microphone (audio control)

    I wish to have my Windows 10 (20H2) machine listen to microphone (relay audio from sound input device to sound output device) and be in Mono audio mode (combine left and right input sound streams and send the combined result to both left and right output sound stream) at start-up.

    The "Turn on Mono" setting does not appear to take effect until after an (any?) application using windows sound is started. The "listen to microphone" setting IS in effect at start-up (however, the audio flow is still stereo, which is not intended.)

    Here is the step-by-step:

    1. Start Windows 10, no audio-based application running
    2. Ease of Access > Audio > Turn on Mono
    3. Sound Control Panel > Recording > (double click on) Microphone > Listen > [x] Listen to this Device

    4. Reboot.

    5. At this point, the "Turn on Mono" setting does not appear to be in effect (left and right audio channels are still distinct)

    6. Start (any) windows sound application

    7. At this point, the "Turn on Mono" setting DOES appear to be in effect (left and right channels are merged at input, and the merged audio is presented to both left and right audio outputs)

    8. Stop the windows sound application

    9. At this point, the "Turn on Mono" setting DOES appear to be in effect (left and right channels are merged at input, and the merged audio is presented to both left and right audio outputs)

    Repeatable beginning at step 4.

    I imagine this is not intended behavior, and I'm wondering if it's an oversight in Windows 10?

    Thanks for any advice or attempts to duplicate this sequence.

    Dave
