Microphone and Stereo
Our configuration assistant automatically detects the best settings for recording on Red Karaoke, but in case it fails, here is how you can configure it.
There are two possibly configurations for recording on Red Karaoke, with the stereo mixer activated and without it, we’ll explain how to configure both:
Without the stereo mixer
Step 1: Right click on the speaker icon that you’ll find in the right part of the screen, next to the clock, and select “Recording devices”.
Step 2: It is possible that you have the stereo mixer selected as the predetermined recording device. Right click on the device and select “Disable”.
Step 3: Now select the microphone and right click it. This time, select 'Enable', repeat the process and select “Set as default device”.
Click accept and now your computer is configured for recording with the microphone and without the stereo mixer.
With the stereo mixer
To record with the stereo mixer, repeat the previous steps of 'Without stereo mixer', but this time set the stereo mixer as the default device and activate the microphone. .
With this setup it is possible that the music may sound double on your recordings, in which case you simply need to silence the music from the player before you begin recording.

If you are recording a song and only the music has been recorded, it is possible that you have the microphone muted. Check your recording options to make sure it isn’t.
In case you are recording with webcam, it is possible that your computer may mistakenly detect your webcam as a microphone, in which case you should check that it is deactivated.
It is possible that when recording using a laptop with a microphone jack that the system may confuse this with the computer’s internal microphone. Be sure to deactivate the laptop microphone in your sound options.
In the case that you have a Realtek or AC97 sound card, it is possible the system may confuse the first port for the microphone with the back port, making it impossible to record anything. Follow the steps of this tutorial to solve this issue.
If when trying to listen to a recording you do not hear anything, most likely the player is muted. Check by opening the recording, clicking on the speaker in the corner of the player, and make sure it is not too low or muted.
If the recording does not load, there may be a problem with the flash player in which case we recommend you reinstall it.
This happens for various reasons, though the most likely is that while recording, other programs that use up bandwidth were running, or just too many programs that do not connect to the internet were open on your computer, all of which slow down your computer.
