If you feel the shield goes to the middle, try red on one terminal and white on the other. If not, reverse it.

If it's labeled on the circuit 1, pin 2, pin 3, then pin 1 is usually ground, pin 2 is hot (red), and pin 3 is cold.

This mic has a 10db pad or attenuator switch near the bottom of the barrel... make sure you haven't accidentally engaged it.

If that's not.... it try changing the lead. Also the power supply on your preamp could be failing.

How do i connect it? does it need a sound card to be connected? thanks..

The Roland DR-80C Microphone is an condenser microphone which requires phantom power or a 12V power supply.. Usually this is supplied by connecting the mic to a microphone preamp or an audio mixer that has an 12v mic/line input.

Will phantom power damage my audio technica DR-VX1 microphones?

No it will not. The reason for the word phantom is that it does not affect microphones that don't need it (apart from some types of ribbon mics)

Open the unit and look for damage. If nothing is obviously wrong, the element probably has fatal damage.

This mic is a condenser type microphone. It needs phantom power (48v) to operate. Might want to buy a USB mic preamplifier box, like an M-Audio product, which will provide phantom power, xlr/1/4 inch inputs and USB output.

Roland DR-30 Mic - how do you use it?

If the mic is a dynamic microphone, you would need a small mixer. The line input is a high level input and the mic level needs to be boosed. We here at Pro Line Music have small mixers 215-736-8055

DR-VX1, No sound comes out, fresh out of the box

There is a setting on your computer that will give you a Mic boost. Here is how you set it. Double click on the little speaker icon on your taskbar at the bottom right of your screen. The volume control window will open. Click on options then properties. Next check the small round recording button. Now make sure the microphone box is checked then click ok. Now a window will open that will show your microphone recording level. You can turn that recording level up using that slider. To give your Mic a boost click on the Advanced button at the bottom of the Recording Control Window. Then at the bottom of the next Window check the Mic Boost box. This should give your Mic a little more kick and you can lower the mic recording level using the slider if your recordings become distorted.. Good luck with this and I hope I have been helpful.

No volume from Audio-Technica ATM410

the mic you mention is a dynamic mic, and needs a mic preamp to get decent levels for most computer sound inputs

Not acknowleging

just make sure that you are hocking up you mic in the right plugs int he back of the computer. just match the colors. you need also to go to the audio panel (it is called volume icon)and check in for mic and make sure that is not muted there. if you use the mic for msn for instance, you need to go to tools, audio and video options and just follow dircetions.good luck
