Surely there’s a technical reason for this, but I’m clueless as to what that might be.
I’m trying to record onto cassette tape on a boom box (large portable CD/tape player). I have used the mic jack on it before and know that it works.
In this case, for a mic, I’m using a computer-style headset with attached mic. The hearing part is fine, but the voice never gets on the tape. It seems like the mic isn’t working, but I’m suspecting something else.
Can the mic on a computer headset be used as a recording mic?
