  1. microphone as line in audio


    I am using a microphone through a USB audio interface device (a Steinberg UR 22). As such my system recognizes the microphone input as line-in. This is a problem because I need to be able to enhance the audio, such as is possible with mic boosting options etc. However, there are no such options for line-in audio. This is a very expensive set up, but my system reacts to it as a very quiet mono for no reason I can't decipher. All attempts to deal with any drivers, updated, troubleshooters and settings have so far proven insufficient. Please help.

    :)

  4. microphone as line in audio

    My Line in microphone is currently unavailable.

    Hi,

    Thank you for posting in Microsoft Community, we appreciate your interest in Windows 10.

    As per the description I understand that the headphone microphone is not working after upgrade to Windows 10.

    This might be due to some incorrect audio settings or it might be due to the out-dated audio HD drivers.

    Please try the below steps and check if it helps:

    Method 1: Make sure that the Microphone is not disabled and is set as default.

    • Right click on the volume icon and click on
      Recording devices
      .
    • Right click on an empty space and check mark both
      Show disconnected devices
      and Show disabled devices.
    • Double click on Microphone and make sure that the microphone is enabled under
      Device usage.

    Now, check the issue. If it is already enabled, then try the next method and check the issue.

    Method 2: Run Recording Audio Troubleshooter

    This troubleshooter is an automated Windows 10 in-built tool which finds and fixes the common issues with the recording audio devices and its settings.

    Steps:

    • Press Windows key from the keyboard, type
      Troubleshooting and select it.
    • Click on View all in the left pane of the window and click on
      Recording Audio.
