Does anyone know how to make the microphone volume stay at one level?
When using IP Communicator the microphone volume level increases automatically while I talk until it is maxed out. I use the Audio Tuning Wizard and set the microphone volume to a medium level. But the next time I check the wizard the mic volume has moved all the way to the high end. It is so loud I have to mute my headset mic so all the background noise isn't picked up.
I have opened the Windows XP Wave In volume control and, as I talk on the phone, watch the slider move up to the max position.
I've heard something about Automatic Gain Control but haven't found anything by that name on my system.
A UI option to enable/disable AutomaticGainControl has been added. The setting can be accessed under the Advanced Audio Settings menu. To view the UI option a user must create a registry key HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Cisco Systems, Inc.\Communicator\AudioShowAGC and set the value to 1. This will display the UI option to enable/disable AGC under the Advanced Audio Settings menu. "
I have made the registry setting changes, but do not see the panel that allows me to disable AGC. I created keys in HKLM and HKCU but it didn't expose the panel. Is there another way disable the automatic gain control for IP Communicator on Windows 7 64bit?
