Vista pass through for Bass guitar

Recommended Posts

Hi All,

 

Used to do this in XP.

 

Could plug the bass into the MIC jack and I could hear it as it played through.

 

Now I plug into the new vista machine I can record but I cant hear it.

 

I know the mic is working because I can play it back after.

 

Google has yet to give me any help either.

 

help me Obi - atomic - kenobi your my only hope.

 

Soundcard is onboard realtek digital.

 

If needed I can give more info but not sure what you guys would need?

Try hitting the windows key, typing sound and go to sound devices.

 

The realtec is configured correctly, now you need to configure Vista to accept what realtec is telling it. Look for input devices and configure them accordingly.

 

i dont have my machine in front of me so i apologise if the description is a little vague. Im home thursday so I can definately help you more then :D

What about that Mic Calibration thingo?

tried that and it works I see the levels going up and down when I play.

 

I just cant get the speakers to dish out whats coming from the mike.

 

Lot of google sites segested hacking the registry but all the keys they shouwed never existed on my machine :/

 

I found a free software and it plays back what's being input buts it got a couple of second delay which makes it hard to play.

 

So in summary. mic is work but vista dont wanna play through like XP did.

Yeah.......I know what you mean...........I might load up a Vista later on and have a play with it.

yeah it's irritating. grrr!

 

all I wanna do is use my puta to hook up to my speakers so I can annoy the neighbours.

 

Is that to much to ask?

Don't most onboard sound devices have both a MIC and a Line-In socket?

 

I'm not saying this will solve your issue, but I would've thought it more appropriate to plug the guitar into the line-in rather than the mic.

 

And have you checked that the volume is turned up/not muted in the playback volume settings for that device? I would think setting just the recording volume wouldn't be sufficient.

 

Apologies if this is of no help, as I'm thinking out loud.

I thought of that but he said it recorded OK, just no monitoring.

Still too busy to load up Vista..........bloody tax office!

yeah line in has no deference.

 

Yeah it records ok through mic in. (except for it starting off loud then tapering away slowly)

 

any help you guys could give me would be great.
