Total noob here- I plugged in my microphone and the volume is way down, and I can't find a way to turn it up. I'm looking around in Control Panel and it's not anywhere. Help?
if you are running windows, in the volume icon in the taskbar right click that and do preferences or something like that, should be there

and if you are running Mac, you are probably mental for not figuring it out by now
Make sure it's in the right socket, it should be in the pink one I think.
Also, try double clicking on the speaker icon thing on the bottom left of the taskbar.
