I have already opened kmix, selected the input tab, and enabled "mic 
boost". And I know that the volumes are high enough because I can 
clearly hear my speech and even my normal breathing in my head phones 
even when I am recording a message on echo123 to test the microphone. 
But when the message is played back there is silence. I would not have 
been able to hear anything in my head phones if I had not enabled mic boost.

Thanks for the help any way.
