II. Steps to install Cubase Autotune to sing live without Soundcard
1. Check if the computer has received the Microphone
For Laptop: Usually there will only be a 3.5mm hole for both mic and headset, so you can use a phone headset with a mic. To identify this type of headset, there are usually 3 bars at the top as shown.
For desktop computers: Usually desktop computers will have separate mic and headphone ports, but to be sure, check first. If it is a 3.5mm port, use a headset like for a laptop, if it is divided into 2 separate ports, you have 2 options as follows:
- Use a dedicated desktop headset
- Use a phone headset like a laptop and include an audio splitter

After you have a suitable headset, you need to check if the computer has received it by right-clicking the speaker icon in the right corner of the taskbar, selecting Open Sound Setting, expand it window and find Sound Control Panel.
Here, switch to Tab Recording and double click on any line named Microphone.
Another table appears, you switch to the Listen tab and tick the Listen to this device line. You whisper into the mic to see if the sound is really from the headset’s mic.
If not, turn off this line and press OK to try again with another Microphone line until you are sure that the received sound is from the headset’s mic, then remove the tick and press OK to complete this step.
