OpenSUSE Multimedia :: Record/edit/save Music From The Microphone?
Jan 8, 2009
I would want to record/edit/save music from the microphone (convert a tape to CD). But. I start audacity, leave everything at default, record the music, and play back. It plays agonisingly slow. I can change the sample rate manually such that it sounds good, but this is just a guess (I could for example measure the recording time, and adjust the sample rate after that, such that the displayed time on the timeline fits this time). Why the hell do I need to do this? Why is the recording sample rate = playbe sample rate not producing correct output?
I'm trying to record a video with sound through FFmpeg, and while it records the system sounds just fine, it doesn't record the microphone (in fact, it crashes on doing so!). The strange thing is that if I use arecord, it works just perfectly, but through ffmpeg it crashes.This is the command that I use to launch FFmpeg:
I have another issue, my microphone does not record at all!! When I try to record, it just makes this....dot. dot sound.I have a Gateway NV53 laptop with an internal microphone built in Does anyone know a solution to it?I've done some research and it all seems to end up in a dead...end. I'm running Ubuntu 10.10 and everything is up to date and working so far.
I'm running Ubuntu 9.10 on an Asus F3JC laptop with an integrated webcam and microphone. The webcam is a
Code: user@ubuntu:~$ lsusb Bus 001 Device 004: ID 05e1:0501 Syntek Semiconductor Co., Ltd DC-1125 WebCam
and it works. If i tap on the microphone or if I blow on it, I hear noises but after I record something with gnome-sound-recorder I don't hear any sound! The same with Skype, for example.
On Xp (other hd partition) it works.
The audio device on the laptop is a
Code: user@ubuntu:~$ aplay -l **** List of PLAYBACK Hardware Devices **** card 0: Intel [HDA Intel], device 0: ALC660 Analog [ALC660 Analog] Subdevices: 1/1
If I open the "sound preferences tool" the device for sound input is "Internal Audio Analog Stereo" and even if I tune the volume of the microphone I don't see any movement in the input level bar. I've also checked alsamixer and the digital volum in the capture interface is set at the maximum.
I've had this problem on ubuntu before, and I remember that I had to install a program from synaptics package manager and change the noise removal settings. This worked on someone else's mono mic, and I'm wondering if anyone knows which program changes the system setting for noise cancellation.
I was running 9.04 and could, through some magical sequence of toggling options that I was unable to figure out, occasionally get recording from the mic to work in audacity. Ardour worked more reliably, but is kind of over-featured. Audacity is simpler and I know how to get things done. For a while, I was doing basic recording in Ardour, saving it to wav then editing in audacity.
Well, I noticed a howto on getting audacity working in 9.10... so I upgraded ("what could possibly go wrong?"). I still can't record audio in audacity and ardour is now ALSO unable to record audio. They start recording samples but nothing comes in but silence. I've got audacity set to ALSA/default/default and when I click monitor, the stream appears in the pavucontrol app. I've moved it to the input device and that doesn't seem to affect the results at all. Everything looks like it should be working fine except there's some invisible mute button, or something. Under alsamixer's Capture section, Mic has a red "CAPTUR" with no bar to adjust.
I am trying to record audio playback from an application and the microphone at the same time on recordmydesktop using pulse audio. I just can't figure out how to mix them both. I have tried a lot already and can only get either the mic or the audio playback to be recorded, not both. Can this be done using pavucontroll?
I have been search now for hours to find a solution (also here on the forum) for this and getting really frustrated now. Maybe i'm just missing something really obvious, so sorry if this is a stupid question.
I just bought a new laptop and installed Ubuntu onto it. Everything is working fine except for the microphone. Every time I try to record, there's a bunch of static in the background. I've tried changing the sliders on "alsamixer", which helps a little bit, but it never completely goes away. I know it's not a hardware problem because it perfectly clear on Windows (I'm dual booting). I've used Ubuntu a lot in the past, but I don't know much about audio drivers, or even how to figure out which one I'm currently using. My laptop is an Acer AS5750-9851 and I'm using Ubuntu 11.04, 64 bit.
I am attempting to record my microphone input using ffmpeg / alsa but always receive the following error:
Using arecord works perfectly with hw:0,0. I had also tried to use /dev/snd/hwC0D0 as input but I receive an error from alsa saying that it doesn't exist (despite it existing and having adequate permissions). I know absolutely nothing about hardware but am comfortable around the command line
I'd like to try transcribing a few of my old vinyl records to my ogg player for the car. But which application to use? Sound Recorder is there in the default install of course, but it doesn't seem to have any kind of level meter in it. I have used audacity in the past, but maybe that's overkill.
The sticky howtos don't seem to mention anything as basic as this question. Which application would you recommend?
My green audio output jack is broken, under Windows 7 I used to reroute my audio to the red microphone jack, so I could listen to music with headphones through the microphone jack. It took me some simple mouse clicks.
How to do this in Ubuntu 10.10? I haven't find anything useful for days for this particular problem.
I would like to record music streams on my computer, coming from the Firefox FLASH plugin, with audacity or something else.In ancient times I had a soundcard that allowed to enable loopback by sw, but my current soundcard (realtec ALC88 doesn't support it. I am looking for a sw based solution to record the sound (not a hw loopback cable). I need a GUI.I tried JACK, but this is horribly complicated, Audacity seems to support it, but does the FLASH player? Anyhow, I never got any sound stream rerouted to audacity through JACK.Isn't there a simple solution that allows to tap the digital audio stream at the output of the Flash player and write it to a file
I am using KDE and Fedora 14 (13 had the same issue) and i can't capture sound from microphone or use skype. I tried to fix this with alsamixer - but it didn't helped me, lspci shows, that there is sound device

I have a Toshiba Satellite A100 I am using 10.10 I am using headphone/microphone headset this did work for me with 10.04 never a problem, I have tried to use these to fix problem - audacity/sound recorder/pulse audio volume control/pulse audio device chooser/ (the more I use 10.10 the more I love it its been a learning curve I am sure this is just another one of them for me..)
Re: Microphone not working after upgrade to Ubuntu 10.10 Maverick My hardware profile is Duplex. When I click on the input tab the signal measuring bar is always staying lit on the first section and does not move further. This means that the mic is not capturing sound. In 10.04.1 there was a dropdown menu in the input tab from which I could choose the default microphone and thus choose an option that works. In 10.10 there is no such thing. I kind of fixed it by adding "options snd-hda-intel model=3stack" in alsa-base.conf. Now I have the dropdown menu and my microphone works for now. The problem is that I did not have to do this in 10.04.1 ... options snd-hda-intel model=3stack sudo gedit /etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base.conf for mine it was mic 1 and it worked
I'm using a CAD u37 usb condenser microphone for some semi-pro voiceover work. My clients insist on stereo audio. On my windows machine, my mic works just fine, but it's not in very very good place for recording (a bit too echoey). So I thought I'd use my netbook running ubuntu.I can plug my mic in, and it does record sound, but there is no available sound profile that allows me to just have two-channels of input. Can I install a driver or edit a file somewhere that lets me have stereo input?
i installed ubuntu inside windows but someone instead of uninstalling it directly deleted the ubuntu folder inside windows ,thinking that the partition will be deleted. but when i restarted the system and command prompt came and said unable to find boot record and i couldn't boot windows as well and a grub prompt came like grub>, then i inserted the windows boot cd and repair the boot record error but my problem is , instead of doing this way, can i do so by grub prompt directly without using winidows cd.
