Microphone very loud and cannot change input level

Question

When ever I plug in the microphone into the front or rear mic inputs, I can hear the mic very loudly through the PC speakers, and changing the input level in System Preferences don't change a thing, the sound level bar is still the same, and it is like the monitor microphone setting is on. The only time I cannot hear it is when I turn the mac volume level all the way down, if it is at level one, the mic is as loud as it is when the volume is at max. In Garageband, the sound level is really low, and it is hard to record anything, help?

 

CPU - i5 3570k

GPU - MSI  GTX 760 TF

Mobo Chipset - b75

Network Chipset - Atheros AR9285

Audio Card - Realtek alc982

 

Note the positions of the volume slider, the mic input slider, and two input levels on system preferences and Garageband

When you wrote "reboot" beneath the line of commands, does that mean to reboot the computer?

Thanks for the reply, but typing these commands in did not have any effect, even after rebooting

I found a solution.

 

1.remove the voodoo hda driver (ktext) in installation OR /S*/E*/

2. update the voodoo hda driver (directly from official site)

 

 

in my case, the 'internal mic' don't turn off.

 

good lucky.

REAL

 

i found a solution!

 

if you mic don't have 'noise cancelation', you need edit you info.plist

in the file /system/library/extensions/voodoohda.kext directory

 

p. ex., you can change initial parameters, after reboot, fix it!

 

good lucky

    • Hey!  I successfully installed macOS Sierra with the Version SierraAMD v3 on my AMD Pc.  But after setting up the PostInstall via Terminal, the OS stops booting at this line : ioconsoleusers: gioscreenlockstate 3, hs 0, bs 0, now 0, sm 0x0 Any solutions?    My System Specs: Mainboard: Asrock 970 Pro3 r2.0 Processor: AMD FX-6300 Graphics: Sapphire Radeon RX460 4GB   Thanks!
    • Ok, so I built a new hackintosh with Niresh Mavericks 10.9.0 on a modified Dell Precision T7400 and mostly everything seems to be working correctly except for two things: Sound (The obvious one), and Online video content (Youtube, Facebook videos, etc) play at lower than 1 fps, frozen speed, after 10 seconds of playback it reaches 4 seconds of elapsed time and I have found no other forums explaining this or talking about this so I decided to bring it up here. As for the sound situation, I already bought a new card to replace the X-FI, so yes, I am aware of the Sound Blaster Audigy X-FI Xtreme Audio not being supported, but what caught my attention is that the sound was working and video playback problem was gone temporarily, I happened to hear the sound from my headphones sitting on my desk and put them on, and sound. I decided to test a video on youtube, the problem with the videos, gone. But after a reboot, they were back. However I have the logs from today and can give them to whoever wants/needs them to figure out what may have caused the sound to kick in on the X-FI and maybe add support for this sound card. I copied as far back in the time that the system was on while sound was working that I could up to the shutdown event. I know it's pretty large but I am not sure where to look, I am simply handing this out to whoever wants to see what may have given me audio on this card for the session. From what I can see that looked to be the most closely related to my issue is something to do with bluetooth (I don't have bluetooth, btw), it says in console: "9/20/17 6:49:55.785 PM com.apple.audio.DriverHelper[200]: The plug-in named BluetoothAudioPlugIn.driver requires extending the sandbox for the mach service named com.apple.bluetoothaudiod." repeatedly many times. This could be completely unrelated.   The only recent actions I made that I personally can think of that may have triggered this would be: I installed several different versions of a music player through Winebottler and it failed to start, more and likely because of the lack of .net framework 2.0 and 4.0, this is my highest suspicion of being the likeliest cause, but I could be wrong. I installed Crossover and installed the music player in it, which it ran in and is where I discovered that you need .net 2.0 and 4.0 (It had the player in it's database and installed .net automatically) Ran Discord (It uses output/input, so may as well add that in) The player was MusicBee, and when it crashed, it also left a log that I could probably try to reproduce if needed.   Specs: Dell Precision T7400, 1x Intel Xeon x5482 Nvidia Geforce GTX 660 16GB ddr2 ram 667mhz (Tested to be working correctly, please don't ask me to run a mem test I am impatient enough as it is)
