                                             Image result for my microphone is not working windows 10
Windows 10 may not hear your microphone’s audio for several reasons. All the usual PC microphone troubleshooting steps are still important, but Windows 10 contains a new system-wide option that completely disables microphone input in all applications.

This is a bit confusing. In general, the app permissions under Settings > Privacy only affect new applications from the Store, also known as Universal Windows Platform, or UWP, applications. But the microphone and webcam options also affect desktop applications.

Get Condenser Pro Audio BM800 Microphone for less than 11k + free shipping from abroad

                                               
Hey peep,
I am Tope Ajisafe. I manage a music school with a home studio for practical classes with my students. I had little challenge and frustrating moments with the quality of my vocal output...Guess the reason?...The small dynamic microphone I was using then was 'hell on earth'... I went to a friend of mine who has a standard studio...I saw three condenser mics in his vocal booth. I approached him to help me with one, even if it means paying him instalmentally. He said no qualm...that I should pay #50,000 for one. Ah...! I was thunderstrucked. I shuffled out of his studio bilaterally promised him that I will check back immediately I get the money. When I got home, I searched on the internet throughout the night. But I heaved a sigh of relief when I stumbled on a Generic Condenser Pro Audio BM800 Microphone Sound Studio Dynamic Mic +Shock Mount.
I placed order for it to be shipped from China...for less than #11,000. And fortunately, I got the strong condenser mic delivered to me right in my house within

15 Amazing Benefits Of Listening To Music

If you love listening to music, you’re in good company. Charles Darwin once remarked, “If I had my life to live over again, I would have made a rule to read some poetry and listen to some music at least once every week.” Albert Einstein declared, “If I were not a physicist, I would probably be a musician.” Jimi Hendrix called music his “religion.”
Recent research shows that listening to music improves our mental well-being and boosts our physical health in surprising and astonishing ways. If we take a music lesson or two, that musical training can help raise our IQs and even keep us sharp in old age. Here are 15 amazing scientifically-proven benefits of being hooked on music.
1. Music Makes You Happier

“I don’t sing because I’m happy; I’m happy because I sing.” – William James

Research proves that when you listen to music you like, your brain releases dopamine, a “feel-good” neurotransmitter. Valorie Salimpoor, a neuroscientist at McGill University, injected eight music-lovers with a radioactive substance that binds to dopamine receptors after they listened to their

The Story of JAY-Z’s Ascent to Billionaire Status, as Told by JAY-Z Lyrics


JAY-Z is rap’s first billionaire, and anyone who has been paying attention to his music across the last couple of decades knew it was inevitable. Through his lyrics, it’s easy to track the living hip-hop legend’s rise from New York City drug lord to the one percent of the one percent.
“You’re coppin’ me like white crystal/I gross the most at the end of the fiscal year than these niggas can wish to” — “Dead Presidents II” (1996)

Before JAY-Z transitioned from rapper to mogul he was trying to transition from drug dealer to rapper. Moving weight was his first trade, and the product sold itself; in Jay’s eyes, so did his music. He invested in himself when he started Roc-A-Fella Records with friends and, before long, he had mastered rap as a hustle, too. For JAY-Z, business always

Hatred doesn't die!


Never meet my gaze with defiance
Flinch from me and incur an inevitable derision
Genuflect to me and get stucked with contempt
Greet me often, expect less response
Get more response from me,  have a quick turn and behold a faint sneer of satisfaction across my
