  • Hi,

    Did you look into the NAudio NuGet package?

    Kind regards,

  • There is no shortcut for reading the volume of the microphone.  You have to read all the audio, as if you were recording it, and compute the average volume.

  • Hi TheMasterOfVCode,

    Thank you for posting here.

    Based on your description, you want to progress bar change will change when the voice volume changed.

    I make a windows form app, you could have a look.

        public partial class Form1 : Form
            private System.Timers.Timer myTimer;
            public Form1()
            private void Form1_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
                this.myTimer = new System.Timers.Timer(10);
                this.myTimer.Elapsed += new System.Timers.ElapsedEventHandler(myTimer_Elapsed);
                this.myTimer.AutoReset = true;
                this.myTimer.Enabled = true;
                this.myTimer.SynchronizingObject = this;
            CoreAudioDevice defaultPlaybackDevice = new CoreAudioController().DefaultPlaybackDevice;
            private void myTimer_Elapsed(object sender, ElapsedEventArgs e)
                pBar1.Value = (int)defaultPlaybackDevice.Volume;

    Note:Please Install-Package AudioSwitcher.AudioApi.CoreAudio.
