script to adjust default recording sound

Is there a way to create a script whether batch or vbscript that could adjust the volume and unmute the default recording device (not playback) on a Windows platform?

Thank you.

I'm a huge fan of NirSoft's (free!) utilities:

One of them is NirCmd:

Scroll down to the bottom for the download links. Note that there are separate ones for 32-bit and 64-bit.

You'll need to use the "default_record" option to change the settings for the recording (rather than the playback) device. The commands you'll use to change the volume and mute/unmute are "changesysvolume" and "mutesysvolume". Regards, Joe
