Only if you are using microphones that require phantom power- otherwise no.

I want to record using Tascam with my peavey xr1220 mixer


What Tascam recorder are you using? If you are multitracking you will be unlikely to be able to use this mixer. Otherwise get a phono lead to fit the tape out and suitable connections for the Tascam recorder at the other end. This will allow you to record the main mix but unless you are a solo act or putting everything through the PA this will probably be pretty useless to you.

I have Lexicon alpha, Condenser Mic, phantom power .If i record, the voice goes only to right speaker. I am using cubase le 4, stereo in/out are correctly.


Sorry, but the Lexicon Alpha does NOT have Phantom power and you can't use a condenser mic with it without a Phantom power injector or preamp.
If you mean you have a Phantom power injector then it should be working. Do you have seperate mics for the two channels of the stereo? If you have only one mic, then only one side will record unless you set for mono recording and then dump the recording into stereo voa Cubase. I would recommend you get a small mixer... even a 4 channel one to use ahead of the Lexicon so you can mix and PAN your mics the way you want them. The recording and trying to control the panning in Cubase can be frustrating... The Lexicon really doesn't have anything built in to PAN the mic to the center when stereo recording. Small mixers are inexpensive and often you can find them used or in pawn shops for cheap.

I have a lexicon alpha, samsung CO1 condenser mic and a samsung phantom power box, i have all the correct wires but i dont think i am connecting the correctly, HELP ME ! lol


Sorry, but the Alpha does NOT have Phantom power which IS required for a condenser mic.

You will either have to get a mic preamp that supplies phantom power or go to a dynamic type mic if you stay with the Lexicon Alppha.

Im having a problem with hearing my b-1 studio condenser mic on the lexicon alpha progam?


Sorry but... Very simply, you CANNOT use a condenser mic with the Alpha since it does not supply the required Phantom power for the mic. You must step up to another interface to use condenser mics. You can use dynamic mics with the Alpha or other audio sources. I use a Roland/Cakewalk UA25E interface with condenser mics and also the Lexicon Omega which does have Phantom power for the mics..

Lexicon Alpha got phantom?


The Lexicon Alpha does NOT have phantom power. The mic input expects a standard mic or a "self-powered" condensor mic. This means that you will neex external phantom power. There are power units available that use 9V batteries for this.

Can't get my XLR cord with mic to work in either 1 or 2 inputs. But my guitar works pluged into the inputs. Cord and mic is good.


Check to make whether your microphone requires phantom power. If it does you must use a balanced mike cable. Check page 31 of the owners manual for input settings and page 79 for phantom power settings. The manual is here:http://s3.amazonaws.com/samsontech/related_docs/H4_manual.pdf

Some of the wires have come loose inside the mic,would you have the diagram for this type of mic,thanx


A regular mic, has only two wires, one is ground and the other of course is the output. The on off switch shorts the ground and the output so it goes complete silent. Phantom powered mic are slightly diffrent. and they are actually studio microphones used in recording studio. They have 3 connections. One is the phantom power one is ground and the other is the output.

You may also have to restore the machine to factory settings using the recovery disk that came with it. The link is to the download for the manual.
