Mic Settings

Post by BBloke » Sun Oct 12, 2008 4:05 pm

Here are my mic settings during game play. I've used the same with a £5 headset from asda and a £50 headset and they have always offered a great sound level setting.

Playback Settings

(Note the mic is muted and the slider is at the bottom. This stops feedback and prevents you being able to hear your own voice.

Recording Settings
Image
(Note: Microphone slider is half way only. This sider effects the mic pickup. Setting this too high may cause sound distortion.

Mic Boost

(Note: +20db Mic Boost Active)

If you rmic is capable of the boost then check the box. If not you may have to adjust the slider in the recording panel to approx 75%.

This is my ingame settings:

In Game Settings

Hope it helps!
