Once you open the Virtual Studio, the Flash Player Settings will pop up to request for access to your microphone. Click Allow.
The button of the Microphone and its settings (the gear icon) are placed on the right side of the deck as as indicated in the picture below:
Click on the button Settings to access the configuration of the Microphone settings. A popup window will appear letting you check and save the changes.
You can select the source of the microphone through the settings. Pick from the drop down menu the microphone source you want to use.
Before going live, you can check the microphone settings and if it fits your needs. While you make this test, check the Microphone and Deck Volume sliders and adjust them according to which level you want the music to have while the Microphone is opened. One more aspect to check is the silence level.
If you want to have the Microphone open and close automatically once it detects your voice you can do so by setting the Silence Level and Silence Timeout accordingly. The Silence Level is the level of sound above which any sound detected will open the microphone. If set to low level it will open easily when a slight sound is detected. This can also depend on the microphone you are using. Once silence is detected then there will be some time after which the microphone will close. This time is set by the Silence Timeout.
Remember always to save the changes you have made!
