I have noticed that I can test in system settings the speakers, but I would like to be able test the same way my headset mic, but there is no button as same way speakers has. What app can easily record my voice, play it back – small and could be the option to provide with a patch this option. Thank you.
Hi, maybe you want to try to install
gnome-sound-recorder. It less than 1MB.
…and how could I add this as a feature request to be kept in upcoming release?
I’m sorry, I don’t quiet understand. But
gnome-sound-recorder is small app to record audio and since it from Gnome, most likely this app will always available in the repo.
I think for the workstation, we’d have to make a request to the workstation team, since they decide what default packages go into the workstation image:
For something like this to be added to “settings” itself, we’ll have to file an issue with Gnome upstream, probably in the “gnome-control-center” project:
The way I test my mic is to speak and see if the volume bar for the mic moves, but of course, that’s really not the best or a sufficient test
True, but you are able to try the left and right with the button at speakers, similarly would be cool to have a test ability to see how it works. As stereo or mono, clear on speech playback or crackling or such. Maybe the gnome-sound-recorder is a nice tool, that actually can inform you that your hw works, and it’s stereo, 44 khz, or 22khz on playback. Sort of Test button, with gnome-sound-recorder, is can be an impressive solution. Craziest add-on would be to have PulseEffects just to gain a nice EQ setup by default, but anyway – just to see my mic properly works, and records nicely – would be enough to have gnome-sound-recorder for surely.
My prayers are listened. Seems to be. Just for podcasting and mic users. Pipewired and done. https://www.linuxuprising.com/2021/02/noisetorch-is-real-time-microphone.html and https://www.linuxuprising.com/2021/09/jamesdsp-for-linux-is-audio-effect.html. If someone requries.
Okay, I have done some steps ahead, but Gnome devs answered back that needs volunteer to make it, and patch it up. So, I have the motivation, and would like to do it. What is the path to do my first app that fills that missing gap? I see that pipewire can record, and play back in cli mode, so probably those are good tools for the purpose…but any advice to the good cause?
