Description

This control will record audio from your default recording audio device and allow you to play it back through the EZ-B v4 speaker. The configuration page for this control allows you to specify some effects and the sample rate.

*Note: The default recording audio device can be viewed and selected in the audio settings of your Windows environment. Due to the variation between Microsoft Windows versions, the interface may be different. Usually performing a right click on the volume control in the system tray will present a menu for selecting devices and their respective volumes.

Changing the sample rate will increase or decrease the speed of the playback.

You may also adjust the recording level to automatically begin recording audio. The audio will be played back once the level has dropped below the level threshold.

The most recent recording in the buffer can be exported to a SoundBoard EZ-B v4. This allows you to save the current recording to be played back on demand from a selection of audio files.
