Low microphone volume

If you are trying to record your voice on the computer and discover that the volume of recording is way too low, then you most probably need to boost it and this is how it’s done (Windows XP):

Double click the little volume icon, which is in the right corner of your taskbar (it is not there simply click Start -> Control Panel -> Sounds and audio devices -> Show volume control on the taskbar -> OK).

Then click Options -> Proprties -> Rear pink in (or Front pink in if you plug in your microphone into the front) -> OK.

Now again click Options and make sure that Advanced controls is checked, now locate the Advanced button under Rear pink in, click on it and tick the boost check box.

PS If you don’t have a Rear/Front pink in, then the same Advanced button can be found under Mic.
