Can't get my microphone to work


Hello

I'm running Ubuntu 11.04 and I can't seem to get my microphone to work.
I can see activity via pavucontrol however, when I use a program like Twinkle,
all I get is static.


aplay -l
**** List of PLAYBACK Hardware Devices ****
card 0: AudioPCI [Ensoniq AudioPCI], device 0: ES1370/1 [ES1370 DAC2/ADC]
Subdevices: 1/1
Subdevice #0: subdevice #0
card 0: AudioPCI [Ensoniq AudioPCI], device 1: ES1370/2 [ES1370 DAC1]
Subdevices: 0/1
Subdevice #0: subdevice #0


Edit: I should also add in that I can hear everything just fine. It's just the mic that's the problem.

Thanks!

check your specs to make sure your mic (in) is not shared with a stack or port that also acts as line OUT

it is easier to see running alsamixer and going to the output section for each control and trying out the up or down arrows to see if they change to mic

otherwise check your settings

I explain it in section F
