    hey guys,

    my friend is using Vista, he wants to set up his desktop as karaoke system with 2 USB microphones. the microphone works as a standard recording device, but is there anyway to make it playback directly through the speakers.

    thanks guys, ;p

    Ehh?? normally when you on your mic on your pc or laptop it should directly play out from the speaker right. I believe just plug in and it should work...:think:

    Are you sure? Mine doesn't. :think:

    AFAIK, there doesn't seem to be a way to directly channel sound from a microphone to the speakers. :think:

    You can make it playback thru the soundcard settings. Not sure for a USB mic though.

    Ya it should work on mic port.. and laptop build in mic...:think:

    USB wise may you need the software to adjust the volumn???:think: so did it add extra ..

    or go to the "control panel" n select "sound and audio device" n select "voice" look for the usb device if it is on the list :think:

    I'm always with the opinion anyone should get something like a Shure mic (SM58?) for karaoke. Yep, it may be pricy but its the single most important component for total enjoyment. You'd sound good!!.
    I won't say who, but a local blogger spend slightly more than half a grand for a top of the line Behringer mic..(the one that looks like a Neumann U47) for podcast. I honestly don't know if it was put to good use or not.
