Mic level is -56 to -40 dbm. Line level is either -10 dbm or 4 dbm. You need a preamp to amplify a microphone to line level.

Separate plugs for Mic and audio.

There are basically three levels in audio. Microphone level which is the very low level put out by a microphone. Speaker level is the very high level put out by a amplifier that feeds a speaker. Line level is the middle level that is used to feed audio between components. Consumer audio devices usually use a RCA connector for line level.

To boost the low level of mic input to line level for mixing.

If the tv has audio inputs it can be done. A preamp is needed only if you want to plug a mic. into a LINE IN connector.

Green audio out. Blue audio in. Red mic in.

as i understand you question u want to record audio in you computer without mic. you can use stereo mix option

usually the standard jacks for aircrafts have a mono phone and microphone jacks. the phone is easily identified because the opening is bigger. One receives a phone and phone low audio, while the other takes the mic audio and mic key to the audio panel selector.

Yes it is just a preamp you need an audio interface that will connect the preamp to the audio interface into the computer and obviously a Mic in front of it

No. MIDI is a data port, not audio port.

use the mic input on your computer and change the setting to line input instead of internal mic or w.e or with a male to male audio cable you can get an adapter and plug an electric guitar in and play live and record .. depends what instruments .. all possible though

Yes, provided that your amp has line level inputs, and you have the appropriate adapters.

Plug in a mic or instrument into your computer and press record.

Yes, you press the record button !!! :)

File> New Track Then select the type of audio file you are going to record, if it is a single mic or direct in select mono.

Either is acceptable. Sound professionals tend to write "mic", though they pronounce it "mike". Outside the audio industry, "mike" is rather more common.

no i am sorry they can not... i am pretty sure that flip videos dont have a plugin for audio

In Pro Tools 9 or 10, you can use the MobilePre as an audio interface. You must select it as the input in the hardware options. The mic must be connected to one of the XLR microphone inputs on the MobilePre, the phantom power turned on if it is a condenser mic, and an audio track armed with the first or second input selected (depending upon where you plugged in the mic).

The audio signal to the speakers are not cut off since the connection to the front panel and speakers are in parallel.

an R5 is the region code for a DVD. R5 would be the Russian region. The "line" refers to the audio line. Because they are Russian DVD's, the audio is in Russian. Therefore, pirates and bootleggers must "line" up the audio with an English track.

Yes, though you will need either a matching transformer or a mic pre to get the mic level up to instrument level for low noise use.

Using the sound card mixer, record from the wave output instead of the mic or mine inputs.

You have to use an USB audio interface because the new MacMini (2011 and later) doesn't have a mic input. The only sound input is a LineIn. The cheapest solution can be some USB-headset.

mic then audio amp then frequency modulator with oscillator then rf power amp then aerial(antenna)
