Windows 10: No stereo quality option for microphone in realtek drop down
No stereo quality option for microphone in realtek drop down
I use an ACER ASPIRE 4736Z laptop running on windows 10 32 bit OS.I have tried many versions of realtek and updated all my audio drivers but still i don't get the option studio quality for the microphone settings in realtek audio manager.Instead i get only CD and DVD quality options.This doesn't help as i always get a hiss when i record using my microphone.i have adjusted the microphone settings in the control panel as well.Please help me in getting the studio quality option for the microphone in realtek audio manager.Find the attached image
The quality option is not your problem. 16 bit/44100Hz is the industry standard "CD Quality" and what standard wav files are. In my recording studio, I record at 24 bit/44100Hz but when its finally mixed down to the final form it is 16 bit/44100Hz.
The hiss, usually, is because the volume level is set too high and either the microphone is generating the hiss or the PC hardware is generating the hiss "Noise". PC sound cards are notorious for having a low signal to noise ratio (noisy).
mic isn't stereo , so why would there be an stereo quality option.
have you tried these settings?
I don't have that option(i would have loved to get that option), instead i have the below and have checked all of those still the hiss comes.If i use a usb good quality mic like yeti will the hiss be gone?
Seems it's an issue with PC sound card as i have tested multiple mics and all of them produce hiss.Do you have any suggestion? Can i insert any good quality sound card in my laptop that would give me studio quality recording or should i buy a new laptop? if yes, then which one?
Is there some other work around? My intention is to sing and record good quality vocals with music.
There are USB connected "sound cards", such as those from Creative (SoundBlaster). I don't know what the spec's are for those.
If you want to "sing and record good quality vocals with music" you really need a USB recording interface unit. There are many available, from companies such as Focusrite, Presonus, Roland, etc. A unit with two microphone/instrument inputs would do for what you want. Some even come with a basic recording program. You will also need a good "music" quality microphone. The inexpensive "computer mics" and even the ones on gaming headsets are not designed for music (singing).
If you check your realtek audio manager for microphone default settings you'd most probably see the option stereo quality as can be seen in the screenshot below from my office computer.I just don't understand why it doesn't come in my ACER ASPIRE 4736Z despite installing the same realtek version . I have noted in other computers/laptops that choosing this option(stereo quality) reduces the hiss to almost minimum for the same microphone i use.
I don't want a seperate system for recording.I need to do it in my PC.I hope this USB recording interface unit you mentioned could be connected to my laptop USB port? What about Yeti USB mics?Any idea?
I checked mine and it doesn't have the stereo setting, just the CD/DVD
Did anyone else get this latest update from Microsoft
Realtek Semiconductor Corp. driver update for Realtek High Definition Audio
Must say since it downloaded my sounds are better more crisp on my laptop
I recently bought a new Toshiba touch screen Laptop, primarily for my recording studio and on-site recordings. It works well with my DAW Software (Sonar Platinum) and my recording hardware.
However, it does not have the Stereo Mix...
Basically when I try to record my voice all I hear is very strongly distorted sound, no speech is recognizable. I tried updating drivers, all mic settings I can think of but with no success.
When I open the Realtek manager and click the icon for...
I've been trying to set up a subwoofer, but the subwoofer is recognized as a center speaker instead. I read online that there's supposed to be an option to swap center/ subwoofer output or something similar, but the option is just not there....
I updated every driver, and including Realtek to its "v7566" state. In the Sound properties, there is still no "enhancements" or any option for "sound fill".
Inside the Realtek HD Audio Manager, there STILL isn't my "Enhancements/Sound Effects"...
