Re: m-audio buddy feedback from mlx 990 condenser mike
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?

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.
This 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.
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
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.
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.
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
I guarantee you the antennas are most likely the culprit. Your only solution is to have a tech check the unit, OR purchase an inline RF filter from Radio Shack. It is also possible that you have a capacitor or other component going bad, that is causing the unit to heterodyne and become a nice front end for a radio receiver.
You do have other microphones, and they do not do this. Averages says it is most likely the microphone has an issue or its design. I have one of these MXL 990s too, and my mic began motorboating a few months ago while I was trying to record with it. It may be a quality issue with these mics. They aren't complicated though, any component electronic tech should be able to check it out.
