Soundblaster Preamp

Posted on May 18, 2012

The Sound Blaster 16 PCI and Sound Blaster 16 ISA do not have a very sensitive microphone input. This little one transistor amplifier is powered directly from the microphone jack on the sound card and has LOTS of gain. Just put a 100uF bypass capacitor in parallel with the diode to increase gain even more.
