When you say working in some places but not others, do you mean it works on some channels but not others?

I'm sure you are aware that condensers will not work without phantom power. I'd suggest trying your mic through a different system (if there are non available try your local music venue, if you ask the engineer nicely I'm sure he'll let you test it on their rig). Also try a diffenent condenser on all channels of your mixer, and also try a dynamic mic as well just for thoroughness.

I can't really give you an answer to this unless you've tested with other equipment to identify which part of your rig is faulty.

To be honest I wouldn't be surprised if it was your mixer, I've always found behringer gear to be pretty crap quality.

Also it might be a stupid question but have you tried using a different cable?

SOURCE: Sennheiser em100 g2 receiver passes major static to mixer

This is a well known problem with the EW100 series that is easily solved.
You will need to run this reciever into a line input via a mono(TS) jack to jack lead. this will bypass the phantom power.
Make sure that you set the AV OUT to +18 in the reciever menu to get optimum level.
Phantom power is only present in the microphone inputs XLR3.
Hope this helps.

If it is a condensor mic, it will need phantom power, some mixing desks have specific inputs that have phantom power and there is usually a switch to press. Also some mics use a battery instead of using the phantom power on the mixing des.

Good luck

When the phantom power is on, some channels decide to come and to. Particularly with the SM57 mic


Don't know what you are saying. Phantom power is only used for Condenser mics and a few DI boxes. Make sure you ONLY use TRS or XLR cables into ANY/ALL inputs when using Phantom power. Please describe what you mean by :some channels decide to come". ONLY change Phantom power when system is off as you will get loud noise often by switching phantom while live.

I have set-up M-Audio microphone recently but I can't seem to figure out HOW to begin using it. I've tried every drop down and clicked every recording button while I was using the software. . . is there...


Without knowing your setup or the mic model, my guess is that you need to run a phantom power supply to the mic to get it to function. This is done either by using an outboard analog mixing console or mic preamp with a phantom power switch, or using an inline phantom power supply. The microphone plugs into the mixer or mic pre with the phantom turned on, and then into your DAW system.
The phantom power works with condensor microphones like the one you have. It sends a 48v signal to the microphone element, which in turn energizes the element and makes it function. Dynamic mics, like a Shure SM 58 for example, do not need the phantom power and will even ignore it if run on a phantom powered channel. condensor mics however must have it to function, otherwise there will not be any sound. Hope this helps. Good Luck.

I have a condenser mic, and it needed phantom power to work, so I bought the Ultra Di-100, but I don't know how to make my mic work with it.


Sorry, but the DI-100 can OPERATE on phantom power, not supply it. If you have a mixer that has phantom power then you have no need for the DI box. DI boxes are to convert unbalanced signals to balanced to send via XLR or TRS cables.

If you don't have a mixer that has built in Phantom power or a source of Phantom power, then you need a mic preamp that can supply the phantom power.

Here is an example device, but DO shop[ around as you should find some even less expensive. Make sure they have phantom power.

What is the switch for on the Phantom power unit at the end of my AKG C747?


Hi,the switch for the phantom power on the microphone is to activation of the mic.Without the phantom being activated, the mic will not work.

It can only be activated with a mixer console that has a phantom activation on it. After connecting the mic to the mixer,activate the phantompoweronthe mixer and switch on the phantom power on the mic,and problem solved.

Note: Mic will not work if no phantom activated on the mixer.

I'm buying a Rode NT1A, it comes with a shock mount, pop filter, xlr cable etc. What else besides a USB converter cable to I need to have this mic work it's full potential on a PC?


Hi, what else do you do think you will need? I don't think you will need any other thing except that before you use the mic, the switch for the phantom power on the microphone is to be activated .Without the phantom being activated, the mic will not work.

It can only be activated with a mixer console that has a phantom activation on it. After connecting the mic to the mixer,activate the phantom power on the mixer and switch on the phantom power on the mic,and problem solved.

Note: Mic will not work if no phantom activated on the mixer.

That all you will need .

Thanks for using fixya....

I have a shure microflex mic condencer 150 the led does not work and the mic is dead. Does the mic need a battery if so how do you instal it.


Try using a mixing console with phantom power ( + 48 ). A condenser mic needs 48 volts to operate. The led should light when the XLR microphone cable is connected to a console with phantom power.

Rode NT2 got Phantom!


Well... Rode NT2's are condenser mic's that require phantom power to work. So the phantom switch should be on. When you turn phantom power on you usually hear a bump sound (through the amplifier). In this case, nothing is broken.
Your picture is of a Rode Videomic (not an NT2) which is a stereo mic for video cameras. If you had some kind of stereo mini to (single) XLR adaptor, and put phantom power through it, the mic would probably be damaged. But maybe not... just try again without phantom power to see. a stereo mic won't work very well with the Mbox Mini because it only has one mic preamp.

MXL 990 doesn't work


Your other preamp does not have phantom power to supply power to the microphone. All condensor mics like this need phantom power. The Audio Buddy provides phantom power, which is why it was shipped with those condensor mics
