How to Blow in the Microphone on DS Emulator

by Breann KanobiUpdated September 22, 2017

Many games on the Nintendo Dual Screen (DS) utilize the device's microphone as a part of the game mechanics. Games force you to speak or blow into the microphone to complete certain levels. Often, Nintendo DS emulators fail to offer an alternative for microphone-based mechanics. However, the emulator No Cash GBA (No$GBA) recognizes your computer's microphone as the Nintendo DS microphone. The emulator is available for free on its official website and functions with Windows computers.

Computer Microphone

Connect a USB or headphone jack microphone to your computer.

Click on the "Start" menu and scroll to "Control Panel." Double-click on the "Sound" icon.

Press the "Recording" tab and locate the icon of your microphone. Highlight the microphone and click on the "Set as Default" button. Press "Apply," then "OK."

Open your Nintendo DS emulator and navigate to the portion of the game where you blow into the microphone.

Speak into the microphone. Typically, a computer microphone requires a louder input than the DS microphone.

Audacity

Visit the Audacity website and click on the "Download" button.

Install Audacity by following the instructions that appear at the installation prompt. Double-click on the "Audacity" icon to launch the program.

Open the "Sound" menu and scroll to "Stereo Mix." This adjusts your computer so that it recognizes output as input.

Open your Nintendo DS emulator and navigate to the portion of the game where you blow into the microphone.

Launch a media player such as iTunes, VLC or Windows Media Player. Double-click on a song or video file to play it. The DS emulator recognizes this sound as microphone input.
