in a terminal type


press F4 to show recording inputs

look for microphone and turn up the volume

PS Sigmatel are you using Digital Output? you cant monitor an analogue sound input such as line in and Mic in using digital output

you can only record to a file and play it back to test.

P.S this is the same under Windows since its a physical characteristic

Ok, alsamixer is cool, here's the problem, i configured the input to be "mic front" which is where i have the mic plugged in. But when i press f4, i don't know what the three options mean or what to adjust, i put invol to full, inmux also, but when i close and return to alsamixer, it is back on ) -(don't know why or if that's characteristic) and i have no volume option for ADCmux. What exactly do i need to set where for it to work? and is there something wrong with what i have done?


audio, etc, sound
