Poor - choppy sound when I run my imac on xp home

I use windows xp for paltalk application and when I either use the internal Imac mike or a generic plug in microphone - the words are garbled and volume output is very low.

    audio out is great - if I use the internal mic in other programs such as yahoo chat  or messenger (on the mac) - it is fine too.  Sees as though the problem is with paltalk but I really dont believe that.  


    When I open my mixer - the microphone IN vertical slide is in ghost - all of the other slides are in green.  So is this something to do with bootcamp / or mac dont like the soundboard mic in and will not see or accept it.

Hi there
you will have to set the mic up properly with the system, go to the control panel and select "sounds" to set up the microphone's different audio levels

kind regards and Merry Christmas

Check out the volume settings first and increase it as much you require.and also check out the wiring connections and instead of that program try listening any songs or audio from that same speaker to confirm the exact fault.

Check if this also happens with an external driver.

    Check if this also happens with an external microphone. If you don't get the bad sound using an external mic, then the connection to the mic is shorted, and the mac must be taken apart to fix the problem.

    If the problem persist using an external mic, that means that the audio controller is bad, or the software recording software has a problem. Solution is trying to reinstall Mac OS, if that does not work, your MAc audio chipset is faulty.

    In this case you have two choices, either you replace MAC motherboard, or you buy an external audio adapter, like this one:Amazon.com: External 5.1 USB 3D Audio

Memory issues... you need to add more memory to your system and also get rid of any spyware as it will slow down your system... i recommend spybot s&d for that... as well defragging your system will often help as well

Whistling background noise with Samson C01U USB condenser mic


Welcome to the world of STUDIO microphones. Super quality BUT you must have a studio to use them. You can't have any local speaker playing into them. You often use headphones lest your monitor speakers will feedback. At the high frequency capability of these mics, you can fry your amps with oscillations above what you can hear!

SAMSON CO1U recordings sound like they're underwater on my MAC


The behavior you describe suggests that the mic is not getting power. Since it is a condenser mic, it requires what is usually called "phantom power". This should be provided thru the USB port. Check to be sure that the USB port is supplying that power. Check with another port for example. If that fails, you may have a defective mic.

Keep us posted.

I recently purchased a samson g-track usb mic. when I use it with garage band on my imac - I get static. not always, only about 1 time in 10 recordings. I have to diconnect the mic, re-connect then it...


It appears to be a problem with USB and the clock sample rate of the mic.  You need to go into your Applications/Utilities folder to find your Audio MIDI Setup.  In there you can choose the device for input and manually set the sample rate (usually 44.1K or 48K).  Keep that window open while you record, and you'll find that the mic will reset itself to another sample rate on its own... don't know why, and Samson's support is pretty non-existent, so I can't get any answers from them.  If you simply reset the sample rate in the Mac's Audio MIDI Setup utility the problem will clear itself up.  But, with Garage Band, you'll then get a very bad latency issue that will force you to restart Garage Band to reestablish a near-zero latency.  It's annoying, but it does work.  (In Soundtrack Pro I can reset it without having to restart the application.)

Switched from a g4 PowerPC to a g5 Intel Imac and now Mic has a lot of digital hiss


the Samson C01U picks up the noises running inside the computer, or laptop whichever you have. You can't change that. But if you want to get rid of it. I use Cool Edit Pro. There's this effect we have for Noise Reduction. I won't go further on unless you have this program, or something similar. But basically it takes out any unwanted static

Very quiet recording


make sure the recording levels are as high as possible without going into red on the meter at all when recording, if the recording application has a compressor it may benefit to use it, if it does have one then there's probably a preset on it for voice. If the levels are adequate during recording then the problem lies in the output path.
