    How do I change Microphone level setting from linea log to Db


    I am trying to adjust the input level for an audio testing microphone to 9.9db, but the log scale is 0 to 100, not measured in Db. How do I change the scale so I can correctly adjust the levels?

    Microphone Boost level not going beyond 10 dB

    Hello Elenwood,

    Thank you for writing to Microsoft Community Forums.

    What is the make and model of the computer?

    Recent software changes can affect the ability of your device function. You may want to try the steps listed below and check if it works.

    Method 1: Set the default value in Audio Settings.


    You can set the microphone boost value from 0.0 dB to +40 dB using the slider provided. If the slider is limited to +10 dB on the max, kindly follow the steps given below and see if it works.

    • From the Start menu, search for
      Manage audio devices
      and click on it.
    • Go to the Recording tab and right click on the
      active microphone which has a green check mark on it to select
      Properties
      .
    • From the General tab, switch to Advanced
      tab and uncheck the option ‘Allow application to take executive control of this device’.
    • Click on Apply and OK.
    • Unplug the microphone and replug it to check if you can increase the Microphone Boost level beyond 10 dB.

    Method 2: Update Sound card driver.

    I would recommend you to visit the manufacturer’s website, to download the compatible drivers for the sound card and to install them on the computer.

    For further information, you may refer the article here to Update drivers in Windows 10.

    Regards,

    Windows 10 microphone level setting

    The microphone level setting on my Windows 10 keeps resetting to -19.3 dB.

    I move it to near 0 dB but it keeps resetting.

    How do I make it a permanent setting at or near to 0 dB?

    Headphones' Microphone Volume Under the "Levels" Tab Disappeared

    We suggest that you check the following steps on how to raise the mic volume:

    • Check the Speaker icon on the system tray. Right click on it and choose "Recording Devices" menu.
    • This will show Sound window. Go to Recording tab of Sound window, you will notice the microphone which is active that has a green check mark. Right click on the active microphone and select "Properties".
    • You will now see Microphone Properties window. Go to the
      Levels
      tab and you will now see Microphone and
      Microphone Boos
      t. You can use the sliders to modify your volume settings. Click
      OK button to save changes.

    Let us know how it works so we can further assist you.
