Cybercorder 2000

Setting up Cybercorder 2000 to Record

This page describes the steps for setting up Cybercorder 2000. This typically needs to be done only once after software installation.

Cybercorder 2000 can record from the Internet or from an external source such as a stereo receiver or radio. If you are recording from an external source, you will need a stereo cable to connect the computer sound card to the sound source. For details and photo of the cable including instructions on connecting the cable to a radio or receiver click here. The same cable can be used to connect other sound sources such as a tape deck or phonograph.

Turn on the sound source and set it to play sound. If you are recording from a receiver/radio, set it to the radio station that you will be recording from. Refer to the Frequently Asked Questions page for additional information on recording from an on-line source. The mixer properties then need to be set. Start the mixer by clicking on the mixer toolbar button in the Cybercorder 2000 main window. You can also bring up the mixer by clicking on the system tray volume control icon, or by Windows Start Button/Programs/Accessories/Entertainment (or Multimedia)/Volume Control. This brings up the following window:

Mixer

Note: The above window may not look exactly as shown. This depends on the sound card that you have on your system. The Windows title may say "Volume Control", "Play Control", "Master Volume", or something similar.

It is recommended to mute the slider corresponding to the audio cable input jack (normally "Line In") if recording from an external source (e.g., radio). Select Options/Properties from the menu to bring up the following window.

Mixer Properties

In the above window, click on the small circle (i.e., radio button) that says "Recording". Verify that the volume control corresponding to the sound source is checked in the white box at the bottom of the window. This is typically the "Line In" or "Auxiliary" input if recording from an external source such as a radio. If recording from the Internet, this typically will be the "Wave", "Line Out", "Record Out", "What You Hear", or "Stereo Mix" depending on the sound card. If it is not checked, click on it to check it. Then press the OK button to bring up the following window:

Verify that the slider corresponding to the sound source is checked. If not, select it, and unselect any controls that you want to block recording from.

Adjust the recording volume, and playback volume and perform a test recording. Repeat until satisfied with the record/playback levels. If recording from a external sound source (e.g., radio), you may also need to adjust the sound source volume control, but try to keep it as low as possible. If recording from the internet, you will also need to adjust the volume of the internet player.
