    I can't change my microphone gain.


    Hello, I've been running into issues with my new Jounivo microphone, and I found a solution in my manual, which told me to change the gain to a specific amount, although when I try to change the gain of my microphone I can't find the volume booster slider, and even after researching, I found myself in a dead-end. If anyone could help that would be highly appreciated.

    :)

  4. I can't change my microphone gain.

    Hi,

    Please share a few details:

    1. What is the make and model of your computer?

    2. Did you install the audio driver from the manufacturer website?

    I suggest you to follow the below steps and check if it works:

    Step 1: Run the Microphone Setup Wizard

    1. Type “Set up Mic” in Cortana’s Search box.

    2. Follow the instructions provided to set up your microphone.

    Step 2: Check your microphone’s drivers

    1. Type in “Device Manager” in the Search box and select it from the list.

    2. Expand Sound, video and game controllers

    3. Right-click (or tap and hold) your microphone device and select
    Update Driver Software.

    4. Select Search automatically for updated driver software.

    This option will scan the Internet for the correct version of the driver or determine if you already have the most recent driver installed. You may be prompted to restart your computer to install the driver.

    Step 3: Manually turn up the mic gain

    1. Type in “Sound” in the Search box and select Sound (Control Panel) from the list.

    2. Select the Recording tab.

    3. Right-click (or tap and hold) on the active microphone input device and select
    Properties.

    4. Select the Levels tab.

    5. Manually drag the Microphone gain to a higher level and click
    Apply.

    Reference: Cortana can't hear me

    Hope this helps.
