C1 Microphone noises

Lately, as I try to record with my C1, there are sudden noises, rustlings, then the sound may disappear completely, then come back with more unexpected noises - I have checked the cord, and tried my old microphone which works fine, so it must be the C1 - What to do?

    Pretty much the same, noises, and output goes way down. I wonder if SP can fix it for less than the cost of a new one ($200.00)...

This is a common problem with less expensive condenser mics, due to contamination on the circuit board or capsule there can be some leakage current which makes noises and can cut off the sound entirely. SP should be able to fix this for you for not much money.

C1 not working


Sounds like your Phantom power supply may be defective. To be safe, 1st try moving AC plug for Phantom supply to another outlet as sometimes "sharing grounds" can be a problem. If this doesn't help, try using another phantom power source ...many PA mixers have built-in phantom power. If the buzz disappears with a new one, it will be a filtering issue (capacitors) with the old phantom supply.

I Purchased behringer c1 u microphone and I want to record my singing with karoke..Problem is that when I connect laptop with speakers my singing volume is coming louder but sound of background music is...


You need a mixer. Connect the microphone to the mixer and also the background music. That way you have separate control of volume for the voice and the music.
The background noise can come from different sources. One of them is from the laptop itself, if the laptop is noisy to begin with.

Sometimes my AKG Perception 420 won't record properly, when played back it sounds like white noise with the faintest sound of what i'm trying to record in the background


All microphones have a signal to noise ratio. Basically defined as the level of desired sound to background noise (unwanted sound). Microphone phones also have self noise which should be considered when choosing a mic. There will be noise in every mic, some more audible than others. Condenser microphones require phantom power (48V). This can be supplied by mic prea
mps, mixers, and similar equipment. *Note that phantom power (mic pre amps) must be on or engaged, this can be specific to different types of equipment.
Troubleshooting:Has your microphone been dropped or exposed to moisture? Internal damage to your microphone will be hard to assess but this could possibly be the issue. Inspect the microphone cable, check for damages. Try using a another microphone cable-- preferably a new one. Next to check would be your mic's power supply. Make sure all connections are made properly (mic to cable to power supply). If you are using a mixer or pre amp with multiple inputs, test the mic on each input. (You should test by making recordings and comparing with each change to isolate possible causes). Also test the mixer or pre amp by slowly sweeping the input gain feature while recording an audible source such as singing into the microphone. Typically next in the audio recording chain would be your DAW (digital audio workstation) or computer, but problems with noise most likely precede this.
I could possibly provide more useful information if I know your exact setup.
Provided that you have your equipment setup properly, the microphone or mixer/preamp could possibly be damaged/malfunctioning. I suggest taking your equipment to a trusted repair shop, or if still under warranty, returning to the manufacturer for repairs or replacement.
Hope this helps

I recently recieved a Bush Noise Cancelling Desktop Microphone M-013NC , i've plugged it into the back of the computer and turned all microphone volume settings upto full, but when i try using the sound...


There are two separate settings in control panel for record and playback. It appears you have playback enabled but not recording - see below

Using a microphone with computer

To use any microphone with your computer you will need to enable it in control panel. The following instructions are for Windows XP but are broadly similar for Vista and Win7


Click START, CONTROL PANEL, SOUNDS & AUDIO DEVICES


Click VOICE


In Sounds & Audio Devices Properties window locate SOUND PLAYBACK box. Click the VOLUME button. Make sure that there is not a check-mark in the MUTE box against microphone in the list of devices and that the volume slider is at the top of the scale.


Make sure the MUTE ALL box isn't checked before closing the window.


Now click the VOLUME button in the SOUND RECORDING BOX. Here SELECT microphone as an input source for recording (as opposed to un-checking mute in the playback controls).


NOTE if your microphone is not listed in the 2 sets of volume controls click OPTIONS, PROPERTIES on the tool-bar and place a check against microphone in the list entitled 'show the following volume controls' and then click OK. Same applies for Internal mic.


That should be it.


To adjust audio volume generally.

Under VOLUME tab adjust Device Volume as necessary. Also (under Loudpeaker Settings) click Speaker Volume and adjust slider to suit.


You might put a check mark in the box to show the volume control on the Task Bar so you can go straight to it to make adjustments in the future.

Countryman mic getting a noise like a white noise generator sounds but it comes and goes. What can I do about it?


Serious crackle or noise is a different problem, but a lesser, rustling crackle is very common with these mics. If you aren't looping the cable close to the mic, you will run into issues.

What you have to do, is put a small, 1/2' loop in the cable, making sure that the looped part of the cable is touching the initial part of the cable. Affix them so they stay that way throughout your performance/production. The closer you get the loop to the mic, the better.

As a test, take the mic, hook it up to equipment and listen on headphones. Start handling the mic, mainly by rubbing the cable, or rub the cable with various fabrics, listening for the rustle. Then put the loop in it and do the same thing. It is amazing how much more quiet it becomes. Try it with the loop half way down the cable and handle the cable above and below the loop. you can hear the rustling above the loop, but not below.

This model HAS to have that loop for quiet audio.

It dont sound like a cd or studio how can i set dis up


There are many factors that can affect how your recorded performance will sound, ranging from the gear (microphone, mixer, interface), the software your using, the room your recording in and the microphone and other recording techniques.

Keep in mind that this is a Consumer Microphone, not a Professional Microphone, so your recording can only sound as good as the mic can record, however there are many ways you can improve the sound you record with the mic.

Start with the recording environment. Hang quilts or other absorbent material on the walls to absorb reflections.

Use EQ and Compression in your software (google this for more info on using these tools)

Most of all, ensure you are using a Pop-Filter to eliminate any plosions (the loud popping noise heard on "B"s and "P"s etc). You can make one out of a coathanger and stocking that is just as effective as most commercial ones if you dont want to fork out the cash.

Use google as a tool to gain as much info as you can on Audio Engineering, and you shoud be able to improve the quality of your recordings quite drematically.

I have problem with my samson g track mic. When I record my vocals I can hear backround noise on my vocals. and I dunno how to get of that 100% I need clear voice not noise on my vocals :((


The Samson G Track microphone is very sensitive. If you have it on the heavy metal base on your computer desk it will pick up the vibrations of computer fans. It's vital to get the microphone off the desk using a mike stand with a boom or invest in the G Track spider holder if you want to use the desktop stand.

You can do a test just by holding the microphone with your hand. You should get very little noise apart from the fan noise with will be very faint. That noise is much easier to remove than the vibration noise as removing the vibration noise affects how your voice sounds.

Hope this helps.

The mic does not record stereo anymore. when playing back a stereo works fine but when recording in stereomodus only the left channel records, the right channel seems to record silence/noise


This Mic is not a stereo Mic. If you're using a windows computer, check your sound control panel to see if the mic wasn't suddenly set to two channel device.

SE2200A "wind" noises during recording


Its very descriptive and is quite a common problem with less expensive condenser mics. It's due to dirt or contamination on the capsule insulator or front end circuitry of the electronics. SE should be able to fix it for not much money.
