    WAIT!!! Are You Sure It Doesn't Work? If You Don't Have Phantom Power To Push It The Mic Wont Make A Sound.

SOURCE: m-udio usb microphone

You should be able to plug your headphones into your computer and get sound that way, assuming your USB mic is plugged in. If the mic is a USB - direct mic (that is, if it is a microphone with a USB cable directly attached), you will only be able to use it with your PC or laptop. If the device is a mic pre-amp (with an XLR or 1/4" connector that your mic PLUGS INTO), then you should be able to use your microphone with any device that will accept that connection type.

SOURCE: I know that the m-audio

I would guess that the mic is a condensor type. These mics are much more sensitive to transients, and they tend to pick up a lot of ambient sound around them. In contrast, dynamic mics, such as the Shure SM 58 have become the standard live mic because their pickup pattern and response tend to be concentrated close to the singer, thus rejecting the ambient noise that condensors pick up. The live sound environment is very different acoustically than the controlled studio environment, and therefore, mics are chosen to accommodate the different acoustics.

SOURCE: i have a nova microphone

Perhaps it is phantom powered check the specs it may need 48V DC power, most mixers have this built if not then you can ask a store for a suitable power supply.

SOURCE: I have set-up M-Audio microphone

Without knowing your setup or the mic model, my guess is that you need to run a phantom power supply to the mic to get it to function. This is done either by using an outboard analog mixing console or mic preamp with a phantom power switch, or using an inline phantom power supply. The microphone plugs into the mixer or mic pre with the phantom turned on, and then into your DAW system.
The phantom power works with condensor microphones like the one you have. It sends a 48v signal to the microphone element, which in turn energizes the element and makes it function. Dynamic mics, like a Shure SM 58 for example, do not need the phantom power and will even ignore it if run on a phantom powered channel. condensor mics however must have it to function, otherwise there will not be any sound. Hope this helps. Good Luck.

Mic not working


Brand new:
1.Some microphones have a dynamic mic meaning it will work with all audio inputs
but this may have a condensor mic meaning it requires phantom power to operate.
your computer soundcard may not supply this.
so you need to purchase a phantom power injector.. there availible at most audio stores and electronics retailers.

if your unit had worked before but has since stopped:

2. Microphone lead/connection is faulty
if your feeling confident you will need to disasemble the unit and replace the lead

tools you will need:
screwdrivers,
multimeter
soldering iron
solder.

and some single wire shielded cable again availiable at most electronics stores.
just need to replace cable with new one and add a 3.5mm Jack to end..

hope this helps,ben

Would you please help me? My MXL 990 doesn't work when i plug it in the M-audio USB interface. The led doesn't light. I use XLR cable. Please help. Thanks a lot!


Make sure the Phantom Power on the Audio buddy is on. If that fails, get in touch with MXL and they will troubleshoot it with you.

Cable conexion is broken


I removed the cable from microphone circuit board  and shortened cable by 20 cm. to eliminate damaged wires, stripped the individual wires and soldered the pins to the new wire ends and reassembled.  Used black heat shrink tubing  [10mm dia.] to reinforce cable end at mic to prevent future damage from careless handling.

Document wire colours to pins before disassembly
