How to boost computer headset mic gain adequately?
Not sure if this is a Windows issue, or within SmartSDR. Regardless, I've been chasing it on and off again for a while, with no success.
I have a USB headset that I use for Teams, Zoom, etc. The audio, by all reports, is just fine. However, I can't get SmartSDR to see enough level from my computer to get my transmit audio to peak the Level meter up to the -5 dB range. I have the gain settings in Windows for that mic pushed to the top. And of course the level in SmartSDR is as high as it will go too. I might manage -10 if I yell...
Any thoughts on how to get the mic audio hot enough to bump the meter properly?
Would the SDC package with what looks like an audio mixer of sorts help me any? I paid for it to get the skimmer function, but the setup is far from intuitive so far. I'll bash away at it if this seems like a plausible solution.
