I want to control the recording control of  windows...not the one in the playback section but the one in RECORDING.
Also, I want to enable the MIC boost and select the MIC as the source (instead of the Line in)

Solution can be in VB6 or VB.net but need to be complet and working.

Thanks

I know that place, but hey use a external dll.
I find a way to bypass the dll, but the listing didn't give me the recording volume control.
The tree of the volume is like that
- MASTER VOLUME
- - Master Volume
- - Master Mute
- - S/PDIF
- Wave
- - Volume
- - Mute
- Line In
- - Line Volume
- - Line Mute
{...}
- RECORDING Control
- - MUX ( Or Wave In Select)
- Stereo Mix
- - Stereo Mix Volume
- Microphone
- - Microphone Boost
- - Mic Volume

When I use the code from MSDN I just have the RECORDING control, not the MIC .
I was able to make some change to receive the Mic but I just have the first (Mic Boost ) and I don't know how to control other part. I need to change Mic Volume and Mic boost.

Also I want to be sure that the MIC is selected for recording, things that I realy don't know where to look.


Thanks

That only change the MIC vol, but I think it will be easy to switch MIC boost ON.
But MIC is not selected yet. I have Line In selected instead of MIC.

I will give you part of point for that !!
Thanks
