Thats because the interface at the convertacom is different from that of the radio -- the convertacom supplies power to the mic on the mic audio lead while the radio uses a separate wire. Get the convertacom manual and see how the mic is wired.

I have 2AKG UHFHT40ULTRA HIGH FREQUENCY handheld transmitter microphone , why when I turn them on they blink on and then notning ?


Okay, before going any further, let's just check....

  1. Along with your wireless mics, you have an AKG wireless receivers (e.g. WMS40 mini2), right?
  2. You've checked that mics and the receiver all work on the same frequency?
  3. You have connected both outputs from the WMS40 mini2 to individual mic channels on a mixing console?

Let's recap....

  • The AKG mics aren't going to work unless you have one of the matching receivers

  • The receiver has to be the correct type. This means if you want to run two mics at the same time, then you need a dual channel receiver (WMS40 mini2) otherwise they'll block each other. So, if you only have a single channel receiver (WMS40 mini) then you can only run one mic at a time, not two.

  • The mics and receiver have to be on the same frequency. They make it easy by colour coding the hand mics and the receiver. If the colours are different then they're working on different frequencies that are not compatible.


If you're good to go on all the above then the next stage is just the connection and set-up of the mics, receiver and mixer.

Since the mics are a pretty straightforward On/Off switch affair then there's not much to say there. Just make sure you maintain the correct distance for to ensure the wireless signal spreads out properly. It needs a minimum of 3m (about 10ft) distance between the mic and the receiver.

The receiver is straightforward too. It needs power, so make sure you plug in the mains adapter. The front LEDs give you the status of the signal. There's only two lights per channel, so it's easy to understand. RF OK confirms that the receiver is picking up the mic signal, so this one should be lit. AF CLIP let's you know when there's too much level from the singer/speaker. This could be that the receiver's volume control is set too high, or the singer/speaker is holding the mic too close for the volume they're producing.

The receiver's volume control needs to be adjusted fully counter clock-wise if connecting to a mixer by a balanced audio connection. If you're running in to the line level input, then the dial needs to be turned fully clock-wise.

The signal connection going to the desk should really be made with balanced leads. Jack to jack (TRS) or jack to 3 pin XLR will both maintain the noise suppression benefits of the balanced audio connection.

The rest is how you set up the mixer for the signal. Good luck.

How tointerface an audio technica mb 4k to computer


As long as the microphone is getting power (via a seperate phantom power unit, or using batteries, the MB 4k can use AA) you should be able to plug into a computer with no trouble, as long as a couple other things are set. You'll need two things in addition to your mic and battery.
1) You need an adapter to go from XLR to 1/8". Go to www.sweetwater.com and search for "XLR to 1/8". They are around $10.
2) Your computer must have a "mic" level input. It is probably a red connector. If your computer only has a "line" level input (probably blue), then you will have to use the mixer, or some in between unit to up the output of the mic to line level.
Not sure why your mr8 is outputting so low. Make sure you have phantom power turned on.
Best of luck!

Trying to use a microphone but not sure how to hook it up


No because the mic is a signel in device and the headphone jack is a signal out jack! meaning if you plug the mic into it the mic will act as a speaker and music will come out of it and ruin it!
I would buy an adapter at radio shack and plug it into the phono input on the back of unit! and if you dont have a phono input you will need to buy a small pre-amp and plug it into the aux or tape input!
That will work!
Please rate my answer!
Thank You!

Mic hooked up, but doesn't work?


You have to turn on the mic. volume. It always automatically turns off when you turn on the power again. Or, you can press the gain button (white button). Good luck!

You will need to run the mic through a mixer that has phantom power. Without the phantom power supply, the microphones active circuitry will not be able to work.. Good luck, any problems getting your rig up just ask. A "FixYa" rating for assistance would be great, thanks
