Comon guys .. anyone using car kit and FM out there ?
I have almost everything ready, but I can't figure out how to connect both the microphone for the car kit and the FM output to the same "Line in" or "mic" socket ..!
How did you guys do it ?
At the same time?
Assuming the microphone is output only (eg - not an electret that required a power feed), then you's have to mix them together.
That might be as simple as connecting together though a resistor network to preserve impedances. (That's a passive mixer.)
Then there is relative volume controls (ie, vary resistances).
Can't you split into different line ins - eg mic & line in (#2)?
Hmmmm .... are there any USB Microphones ?!
1. Crap (bought it and returned it)
2. Only allows 1 input either line-in OR mic-in even though there's two distinct connectors
3. Crap (i must stress this)
Most external sound cards dont allow both mic input and line-in. One that does is the Creative Sound Blaster Live 24-bit external, which i used for years in the car and still use at work. Take it from someone that has years of experience and has spent $$$ 3 times over for not reading up before purchasing. Any Andrea mic or any usb mic in general will solve your issue better and cheaper than trying out a new sound card.
Thanks a million .. I was about to order the sound card tonight ! I think I understand the Andrea more from this pic:
There are two inputs in the adapter, one goes to the mic and how about the other ?
