Ahhhh! I just discovered that an Application of mine which records input from the microphone port has broken on the new G3's. Basically what happens is that the recording level is way too low. It appears from TechNote 1124, that a program that records sound needs to set such things the recording gain, input device etc as of OS 8.1. Does anyone know how to do this? I cant find the relevant calls. I'm also a little confused as to whether this should be done via QuickTime or the Sound manager. At the moment all I need is to turn up the gain, I can add a user interface latter. Any help would be appreciated. David PS I looked for the relevant code in FB^3 in Quicktime.Incl and Sub Sound.Incl but none of the necessary functions to display/change recording settings seem to be built in to FB^3! (eg the recommended SGSettingsDialog).
