Ubuntu: How to test the actual output of your microphone

To test your microphone you can either check the amplitude in the settings or create a temporary loop.

Start the loopback

pactl load-module module-loopback latency_msec=1000

The effect ist something like this:

  • Speak "Hello"
  • You will hear your "Hello" as echo 1 second later

Stop the loopback

pactl unload-module module-loopback
