    Mic level is too low


    Hi all.

    I got a generic (amazon) camera that has a mic built in.

    The video part is running fine but the mic level (sound on the other side) is not. The generic driver is up to date.

    The control panel | sound | recording |Microphone | Properties | level is set at 100%

    I don't know how to up the level of the mic in order (for instance, zoom) they can hear me.

    Do you need information from my side, let me know

    Thanks in advance

    In the levels Tab you should have Microphone Boost, as well as Microphone.

    Hi Helmut. Thank you for your answer but I am afraid I don´t have that. Here is my screen:

    Seems to depend on which driver is installed. I see Microphone Boost on all PCs on which RealTek UAD is NOT installed. It shows up on some RealTek HDA machines (Lenovo X390 Yoga) but not on others (Surface Pro 3). That include Conexant Audio (Lenovo devices: X1 Extreme and X380 Yoga) on machines I can get to easily right now. I'll check a few others and report back when I have more free time. At any rate, presence/absence of microphone boost seems to depend on audio devices and drivers installed. YMMV, in other words.

    Thanks Ted, yes. I was thinking about this and I remember read that the issue (not having the Mic boost) is because this is an integrated camera with mic OR this is the basis driver within the OS
