Interested in recording using my scanner, need help


Somewhat eXPerienced
24 Dec 2001
Hey guys,

I'm once again interested in recording things from my scanner. I already have a cable that goes from the Audio Jack in the scanner to one of the audio jacks in my computer. Now I have a Sound Blaster Audigy 2 Platinum that I am working with. I believe I need a program (Free please) that uses something called VOX, which I believe means it only records when it's getting audio.

Will I get the best quality out of my Microphone port? Presently I'm using something called Scanner Recorder that uses VOX, however I don't think I really like it. I think I've fine tuned everything in somewhat of a working manner. Unfortunately the audio doesn't sound like it does coming out of the scanner, but I think that's because of the connection the scanner uses.

Does anyone who has any kind of experience with this know what I should do best? I'm not sure what other ports I should be using with my audio card, not sure what else is in it to be honest, it's been so long and can't find a manual. Any other programs out there?

Another SB Question: My control panel has a volume for the source, and a recording volume... the volume from the source (presently microphone) only controls what I hear right? Recording is actually what is going into the computer? I'm just awfully confused about this, and I'm sure I've confused you too with this post!

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
