Madder'n a Wet Hen

Hmmm. That's odd. I don't seem to be able to record from the microphone like I used to using Syntrillium's Cool Edit 2000. I probably need to get new drivers since I switched to XP. I'll just find them at the vendor's site.

Say what? The is no Syntrillium any more. Cool Edit Pro is no longer supported. The software has been purchased by Adobe and I can upgrade to the new version of Adobe Audition for only $99. If I'd wanted to spend that much I would have bought Cool Edit Pro a year ago. And I am SOL, with a useless piece of software and no recourse.

Well t'ell wittum. So much for my second annual Goose Creek Christmas CD I was going to start recording this week. It's the world's loss, I tell ya. Was gonna be a doozie.

You can't select the microphone as a recording source, or windows can't see the microphone?

if you double click on the speaker beside the clock you'll get the master volume control sliders.

try turning up the microphone (if it's there) and see if you can hear it.

if you can hear it, then in the voulme control window look under "options>>properties" and select the recording instead of playback and set the microphone as the source.

Hope that helps,
