Hey I Have These Mics They Work Awesome. But Yes Feedback Is A Problem You Need To Move Away From The Speakers Way Away. Try Lowering Your Highs Or Invest In A Feedback Eliminator They Are Like 89 Bucks But Obviously That Would Almost Cost As Much As The Mic Set. Anyways Feedback Is Made When A Microphone Can Hear Itself Maybe Try Headphone?

I have a mxl 990 microphone and its hooked up to a Pro tools LE 8 Mbox Mini . when im recording on protools or any other software with this mic, i hear a static/popping sound and it records the popping...


Try increasing the latency. Depending on your computer, it may not be able to handle low latency levels. Latency is a measure of the delay between the time you make a sound and the time the computer records that sound. With the Mbox mini, the unit for latency is the number of samples the driver collects before sending them to an application as input. Lower latency can make recording easier and more accurate, but not all computer systems can operate at the lowest latencies without introducing noise. Open the Mbox mini dialog and select the latency tab. experiment with higher latency levels and see if it goes away. somervta_0.jpgThis is what the dialogue might look like. another solution would be to try a different DAW. I had the same problem with my Fast Track Pro in ProToolsand it worked fin on Reaper, Garageband and Logic.

Would you please help me? My MXL 990 doesn't work when i plug it in the M-audio USB interface. The led doesn't light. I use XLR cable. Please help. Thanks a lot!


Make sure the Phantom Power on the Audio buddy is on. If that fails, get in touch with MXL and they will troubleshoot it with you.

Mic feedback. I sing on a shure beta 58 mic, into a 350 watt peavey amp, into 2 - 200 watt peavey speakers. My band is loud, and I simply cannot get my mic loud enough for them to hear me, without constant...


It sounds as though you are pointing the peavey at the band in a practice situation? If so make sure that each speaker is at about 60 degree angle to either side of the back of the mike (you facing the speakers), most mics reject feedback when the the user is directly in front of a monitor, but Beta 58s' tend to feedback more in that situation. Alternatively (if it is a practice room situation), why not place the speakers behind the band at 60 degrees each and turn to face the band.

Open AIM

Click Next
Be sure to enter the right camera. If no camera shows up, your camera is not properly connected or configured.
Click Next
Here you will see a video window with your camera in action.
Click Next
Enter the right microphone. Some cameras have a microphone built in.
Some other cameras need a separate microphone. In this case be sure that your mike is properly connected.
Select your speakers and be sure they work properly.
Next
"Click to Test Speakers"
Adjust the speaker volume as needed.
Click > Next
Make a mike test and observe the volume bars moving to the right.
Adjust the mike sensitivity so you have a good meter movement when speaking normally

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

I have a m-audio buddy using a mlx 990. I have this hooked to 200 ohm peavy amp. The problem is I can barely touch the gain on the pre-amp or the amp without getting extreme feedback.


It appears that the condenser microphones that are omni directional are too sensitive to process thru an amplifier. I used an mlx 991 directional condenser microphone and though still very sensitive, I was able to avoid the feedback. According to the company condenser microphones are used more for recording and not so much for live stage.

Peavey amp


You could also use speakers rated less than 400 RMS provided you dont crank the volume knobs all the way up.
I think the CS400 is 200 Watts RMS per channel into 8 ohms
400 watts bridged

Here's the manual. You'll need acrobat to open it.

How do you connect Audio Buddy to computer


You probably connect the Audio Buddy via a USB or firewire cable. I use both types of audio interfaces. Your mac will sense which bus has audio. Go to System Preferences panel and select sound. Select input. You should see your Audio Buddy listed if it is connected properly. You can set levels from this panel and test the device by looking at the two level meters. Speak into the mic; the level meters should move from left to right. Go to the output panel and chose your monitoring device. I prefer the built-in speakers, but you could also connect your monitor to the USB interface or even the Audio Buddy. If I need better quality monitoring I plug a mini cable into the earphone jack and use a desktop speaker. Don't try to use that headphone jack for anything but monitoring - the quality is not great. If the Audio Buddy software requires that you select an input source, always use USB, never line or built-in mic. Another way to capture audio from an Audio Buddy or similar device is to use Wiretap Studio Pro or Roxio CD Spin Doctor for audio capture. I use both.

Problems with my MXL 990


Sounds like the frame of the microphone itself has become ungrounded. You could try VERY
carefully disassemble the mic and check for a bad ground or a bad wire connecting to the mic
body.

Problems with my MXL 990 (radio)


g'day mate.
The problem you have will relate to the big antennas in your area. Most radio stations pump more than 100,000 watts these days. So it really comes down to the shielding and what's called Radio Frequency Interference rejection of your microphones to keep this out. I would STRONGLY urge you to take the mics back and get a refund,or change them over for something else. They are VERY cheap, there is no real solution to your problem, except for better design... means spend more mullah. If you are looking for a decent low cost condenser mic, I recommend an AKG Perception. I have used AKG for years, and this mic is a great sounding low cost unit.

Hope this helps you. Nothing can be done to improve what you have, they are a cheapo item. Good Luck

regards
