Connecting Mixer,Laptop & Microphone
I need to mix sound from following sources and make one Audio-CD ( or MP3 ).
- Tape Cassette
- MP3 Files
I have a laptop with following
- S/P DIF port ( for headphones )
- Microphone port
1. How can I connect multiple analog inputs to a laptop ?
2. Do I need a sound mixer or mixing software ?
This is a one time deal; hence I am not planning to spend lot of money.
The laptop computer should have the basic minimum input/output jacks for you to record and microsoft operating system(win98/XP/2000)bulitin sound mixer.Take note that spdif is a digital signal in/out.Read your laptop's owner's manual for proper usesage.It's definitely not for microphone.Here is what a basic laptop /notebook should already have for sound processing:
1.stereo out for earphone.It can be used as output for amplifier or powered speakers.
3.Line in for analog source like tape player,tuner/radio,mp3 player
(earphone jack as output,volume control to set level/amount of signal)For multiple input or more than 1 input at the same time,an external sound mixing console is required.But the laptop should easily give 2 input.(line in and microphone.)
You can use free sound editing/processing software( usually trial software with some features disabled or 30 day usesage.)but there are some that are really free under the open/gnu license,just look harder.Good luck.
thanks for your response.
I see a "Line In" port on my DESKTOP but not on my LAPTOP.
Is it how most laptops are configured ?
Also, per owner's manual, the S/P DIF port is for output only.
In that case , how do I feed stereo input ?
