    Monoprice usb microphone.

    I'm only hearing my recordings prominently in the left channel and have to press my headphones on the right channel to hear the 2nd channel.

    Is there a way to check the volume balance for both channels?

    Microphone Issue

    So I built a custom pc about 4 months ago and the microphone has never worked, the output is fine, but there is no input.


    i5-sky lake

    8gb ram

    GTX 750 ti sc

    gigabyte motherboard

    I use the onboard sound, but whats weird is when I tap on the microphone is detects sound as in you see the green bars jump up, but I can scream as loud as I can and it won't pick up my voice

    I use windows 10.

    Please help!

    Hi Koustub,

    By the looks of it, it appears to be an issue with Google Chrome browser. You mentioned that Cortana's voice command is working as expected. With that in mind, verify with Google the correct settings to make it work. Has it always been like this before?
    If not, when did it start happening? What changes were made to your system since then?

    Please advise as necessary.

    It depends on which application you use for the recording. If you don't specifically set the recording to stereo (both channels) the default could be mono (left channel only). See the settings of the application.

    I'm using obs but still primarily left channel and have not checked the mono box.

    In that case, maybe stereo records only one channel because the microphone is mono, not stereo. Try selecting the mono option, just in case the recording plays on both channels (as done in a tape recorder when playing a mono recording). You can also use an audio editing application to copy-paste the left channel on the right channel so you hear the same on both. This is easy to do. There are several applications to do that, even free, just Google. I use Cool Edit Pro (not free).

    In settings I'm set at 2 channels at
    4800hz dvd quality.

    Just can't find a way to balance the channels.

    Maybe recording at stereo while the microphone is mono, records sound only in the left channel leaving the right blank. Try recording at mono and see if playing the recording produces sound on both channels (like when playing a mono cassette on a stereo deck).
