Hi,

I'm using those little USB sound device and I'm having a hard time managing the volume on it, how can I lower the sound using the new broadcats software?

regards,

roots

Levels have to be controlled by the computer or the volume on the scanner or a combination of both, not in the broadcast software.

I just got like 20 of those USB sound devices today (for $20 meh I got 18 extra). believe it or not I find turning the linein/mic level to the lowest setting in windows sounds the best for the mic/line in port. Anything above that sounds overloaded. I suspect because it's a mic port and doesn't like the amp'd volume of a scanner.

For some of my feeds, I have the scanner volume just above the zero level. It takes a combination of scanner and Windows sound adjustments, along with trial and error, to get it right.

but I'm using the REC OUT on the scanner and I don't find where I could lower the volume....

also on the PC, the MIC IN is already set to low so I'm not sure what to do next?

thx,
