This balance is difficult to get right. There are so many sliders. But it must be done for the good of video tutorials!

Here's the "recipe" I currently use and will come back here to remind myself of:

Windows XP - "Sounds and Audio Devices" Control Panel

  • Go to Volume tab.
  • Set "Device volume" to 5 (the leftmost is 0).
  • Go to Audio tab.
  • Under "Sound recording", click "Volume".
  • In the Recording Control window that comes up, set Recording (on the left) to 2 (slider should be notched exactly in the middle).

Second Life

  • Go to Edit menu > Preferences > Audio & Video tab.
  • Drag Master slider all the way to the right.
  • Specific sliders (# of right arrow key taps):
    • Music = 5
    • Media = 5
    • Voice = 15
    • Sounds = 5
    • Ambient = Muted
    • UI = 10

Asus Realtek ALC883 Sound Manager

  • REMEMBER TO TURN THIS ON!!!! —> In Mixer tab, Stereo Mix (in the Record section towards the bottom-right should be enabled to record in "What U Hear" mode, including UI sounds.
