So for starters i have a very very good mic (my mom uses it for her interviews)
ive used audacity, but i normally pefer Sony Vegas for editing. ( i record in audacity and edit in sony vegas )
So whenever i record, the volume is verrryyyy low. i have my mic volume turned up all the way ><; its so low that it barely even shows up as anything other than a line...
even if i was shouting into my mic, it gets higher but still not as high as it should be...
]= is there a way i can fix this? i know that i can amplify it but then the quality gets worse. ><; sorry that im a noob at this and thank you in advance xAx;

Are you on a Window's computer?

If so, Double-click on the Volume Control.
Select the "Properties" option from the "Options" menu.
Select the "Recording" option in the "Adjust volume for" section.
Click the OK button.
Check the box labeled "Select" under the microphone volume and you should now be able to adjust the volume for the microphone.

If that doesn't work. You'll have to configure your microphone. What's your OS?

I'm not on an XP, but this should lead you to the right place:

Go to your "Help and Support Center" in the start menu.
Search "Microphone Configuration"
I should give you instruction & a link to where you can configure your microphone.

When you get there you are asked to read a sentence out loud and such.

Although it won't fix the problem, you could always use the normalization effect or compressor to raise the volume. It might sound hollow because the original recording was such a low volume, but at least it makes your recoding audible.

Maybe changing your Microphone Input level would help? ;x

then most likely what yanovi said will work.
As Jefferz said, dynamic compression is a alternative if that doesn't work. I saw many lines before and many are quiet. If you compress it, it does get louder but the quality of the singing drops. THe microphone bg noise also gets louder. So lets hope the microphone level setting will fix it~
