However, people who are typical here to learn how to play music through mic on Windows 10, this article is going to help a lot. We have narrowed down a number of ways so that it is easy to pick any of them as per one’s convenience. So, let’s get started!
How to Play Music Through Mic: Solutions
1. Make changes to Sound on your PC
This is the most primary way to start with. Before getting started, you need to consider a couple of things. Firstly, make sure not to download any such program from the internet that is susceptible to virus threats. Secondly, remember that your Windows 10 system must have a fine quality mic so that proper streaming can be done. Thirdly, the mic must have an audio port to connect to any other streaming device.
Now, let’s move to process:
First, go to the Windows search dialog and enter the quoted text: “Manage audio devices”. After that, as you see the settings app on screen, open it. Go to the “Recording” tab. Turn off the default microphone device. For that, right-click on “Microphone” and select “Disable”. Again, right-click on “Stereo Mix” followed by selecting “Disable” so as to disable the device.
In order to complete the procedure, let’s tinker some settings in discord:
Go to Discord web or desktop app, open it. At the left bottom of the screen, hit the “gear button” to access the user settings. Then hit “Voice & Video” from the side menu. At the top side of the screen, switch from “Input Device” to “Stereo Mix“. Make sure that the checkmark under “Input Mode” is not set to “Push to Talk” but “Voice Activity”. The latter option lets you hear the sound played through the microphone in discord platform. Now, switch off the “Automatically determine input sensitivity” and keep the sensitivity level to -10 dB. Now, you are good to play music through your Windows 10 PC mic.
If your PC features a high-quality mic and you have got some good collection of tunes on your desktop, play it to entertain your other community members, or just so.
Note: If you are unable to locate the Stereo Mix option on your Windows PC, that means your device is unlikely to have a sound card available. If so, then you have to install a sound card for your computer.
2. Play sound through mic by using different software
This is an alternative to the above solution. Firstly, download a desktop soundboard app, such as MorphVox, Rust Soundboard, VoiceMeeter, soundpad, rust soundboard or Clownfish. Then install any of these apps and connect that to your mic. To do that, navigate to the Control Panel, then move to Hardware & Sound followed by Manage Audio Devices. After moving to Recording, enable Stereo Mix and set it to default microphone. Now add the songs or sound effects to be played through that installed soundboard application. Finally, play it through the microphone.
Let’s consider the instance of MorphVox app for playing music through mic. on Windows 10:
MorphVox application lets you play sound effects and other background sounds. Its free edition is not bad, however, it is always best to use the premium version of such applications to enjoy more features and conveniences. For example, the free version of MorphVox offers feature like:
- Hotkeys enabling and Voice changer facility.
The hotkeys are set to play music or sound effects, whereas the voice changer modifies the original voice of the speaker to sound something different through the mic. The hotkeys enabling feature makes the app (MorphVox) more easy to use.
- Text to speech is another feature of this app which you have perhaps heard in most youtube videos. This is one of the useful aspects of MorphVox.
The unique fact of this app is that it is compatible with both Windows device and MAC device (with High Sierra Operating System X installed on it).
Well, these are the two most effective ways to play music through mic on your Windows 10 system.
