Question about Sennheiser SKM100845B Professional Microphone

1 Answer

Live Microphones When I sing into the mic, my mouth is typically RIGHT ON the actual head of the mic. Lately, two of my mics have been "shocking" me. Yes, physically sending some sort of electric current through my mouth. I checked all of the cables, turned off the phantom power in the PA, and made sure that the problem was acutally coming from the mics. And these aren't cheap mics, either. One is an Audio-Technica and the other is a Seinheiser (sp?).Any help would be greatly appreciated. I'm tired of being afraid of my mics kicking my ass.

Why does it sound so bad?

It's probably the mic, or you have some mental condition. I'm going with the mic, try returning it and getting a new one and if there's no difference, then try the software you use on whatever it is you're recording it with.

I hear a "pop" from the microphone when singing. What causes this?

very common problem caused by pressure waves, try singing off mic but on axis so maybe a 6inches away.
or buy a pop shield (transparent audio foam to cover the mic capsule)

should sort it out, if this does not work then the mic may be damaged.

hope this helps
thanks for using FixYa

Two separate karaoke machines. Mikes (one cordless)

Maybe you could try to write anything more, so that someone else might understand it too.
Are you running it through a noise gate? Maybe you should set the gate thresshold and decrease mic gain or send its signal through a limiter. Because singing "to the sides" of the microphones results in less volume(sound pressure on the diaphragm) than "singing to their top".
Are you using a feedback killer/destroyer/whatever? Try to have the singers stand either behind the speakers or on the other side of the room. I recommend  the first option-much better and easier.
Are you running the signal through a mixing board?
Is there a gain switch on the receiver of the microphones? if yes try to keeep it set i between halfway and three quarters of max, closer to the latter.
If there is too much of signal coming from the microphone, the amplifiers overheat-preventing fuses might cut off the signal, if the mic gain is all the way up and the amp is close to similar heights...

And unless you are a trained singer using a professional condenser microphone or on a small loud live stage with a few monitors, there's no use to sing right in the "top" of the microphone. :) It's nicer from the side, or at least a bit offset.

ask if I missed something and try to be more in depth and specific, as I'm trying to be with my answers. and rate pls
