Question about Behringer C-1 Microphone

Open Question

I have a Behringer C-1 cord and I was wondering if a XLR to USB cord would hook my microphone directly into my computer

My microphone is a Behringer C-1 . Not a C-1U . I've purchased it from best buy and the employee said that it is in fact a USB mic that doesn't need an interphase . Is this true ? I've also purchased a XLR TO USB cord in hopes that it will plug my microphone directly into my computer and work at its normal performance but the cord hasn't shipped in upset .

SOURCE: Behringer B-1 Will Not Pick Up Anything

The microphone needs a phantom power supply to work. In your case you need a 48volt phantom power supply. Some mixers have this feature built in.The Micropower PS400 by Behringer would probably be a good choice.

Check the input and output settings. Look in the preferences or settings menu for "i/o settings" or "i/o setup." You're going to set it from the default internal mic input to this one. It sounds like it may be that simple.

SOURCE: how to connect behringer ultragain pro mic

Here is the manual:http://www.behringer.com/EN/downloads/pdf/MIC2200_P0054_M_ENG.pdf Plug your microphone into the input using a proper cable. Plug another balanced cable into the output on the back and plug it into a microphone input on the mixing board. If your mixing board already has phantom power, disable it for that input as the MIC2200 has phantom power. Read the manual carefully and take note of the directions for phantom power and balanced cables. Make sure you follow the directions carefully. If you need the manual in a different language look the MIC2200 up under products at Behringer.com and you can download in pdf format in many different languges.

How to Operate a Behringer C-1U

The Behringer C-1U is a USB condenser mic for recording individual instruments. A condenser microphone is a mic that uses vibrations produced by sound to change the distance of internal plates that produce signal. Condenser mics typically require an extra change, known as phantom power, to operate. Since the C-1U is USB powered, phantom power is not needed. The Behringer C-1U has a frequency response that favors sounds around the 10KHz range. This heightens the clarity of recorded signals due to the microphone's treble boost.

Things You'll Need:

* Computer with USB 2.0 port
* USB cable
* Recording software

Instructions

Turn on the computer. When the operating system loads, connect the microphone.

Install any necessary drivers for the C-1U. This will happen automatically when the device is connected.

Select the Behringer C-1U as an input source in any desired audio software. In Windows, click the "Volume" icon in the task bar to open the mixer. Select the C-1U as the primary input. On Macs, use the "Audio/MIDI Setup" in the "System Preferences" menu to select the C-1U as the primary input


Note: make sure you activate the phantom power on the mic. That's the only way to power up the microphone.

Have a nice day.

SOURCE: Hi. I bought a Behringer

the type of mic input built into a pc (with a mini-jack socket) will not accept the output of a pro dynamic mic such as the one you have - it won't work correctly. You require a pre-amp or mixer - or what would be better for you would be an audio interface with a built in pre-amp such as this:

I bought a ecm8000 mic recently thinking i was buying just a quality condenser mic...but apparently i've bought a measurement mic...how do i get it to work.? i have it hooked up to audiobox u


If it has the 1/4 inch type of male plug that is mono [a tip and ring connection only] you need to make up some sort of voltage/ bypass capacitor circuit. If you were to write to me directly, I can send you a simple circuit- computerlen@hotmail.com.

I hear a white noise when I connect microphone with mixer (Behringer DX2000)


You posted this in questions about the Shure PG42 mic. That mic comes in two versions. There's the USB version which connects direct to a PC. Then there's the standard version which is used with a mixer. I presume you have the standard version as the Behringer doesn't have inputs for USB mics.

The standard version is a condenser mic. It needs power. The power is supplied by the mixer. It is known as phantom power because it travels up the mic cable from the mixer to the mic.

  • Make sure your mixer has phantom power switched on.
  • Use the correct mic cable: Either a 3 pin XLR to 3 pin XLR, or a 3 pin XLR to 3-pole jack (TRS). The leadis a balanced mic cable

  • Check the setting on the mic for attenuation. 0dB is no reduction in signal level. 20dB is a large reduction

  • Look at the Behringer's settings. Make sure you know what each control does and how it affects the sound. Pay particular attention to the effects send and return (FX SND RTN)
Most times there's an issue with no sound from a mic, it's usually down to a poor quality or broken cable; or no power; or the settings on the mixer.

Can a Behringer C-1microphone connect directly into a computer and record? What other equipment will I need? Thanks


you could get away with getting a small behringer mixer that has +48V of power for the mic. Put your mic cable into there and then run straight out using 6.5 (guitar) cable to your computer. you may need some connectors to convert your jack.

What is the best way to run the mic on desktop


Your condensor mic requires special electrical handling usually reserved for proffesional audio equipment, not a PC. You will need two pieces of equipment, a short XLR cable and an adapter cable.
1) Behringer PS400 Ultra-Compact Phantom Power Supply.
This will supply the mic with necessary Phantom Power.
2) Rapco Horizon ISOBLOX Transformer Isolation 1:1 BLOX Device
This will isolate the Phantom Power from your computer, allowing it to work as necessary.
The adaptor connector cable you need will be a female XLR (with pins 1 and 3 shorted, pin 2 hot), through a cable connect to a 1/8" mini plug. They connect in that order with a short XLR cable between 1) and 2). .

Does the Behringer xm8500 work on it's own, or do I have to hook it up to something? My daughter wants a microphone she can sing into.


All microphones have to be hooked to an amplifier to work. The socket at the bottom with the 3 pins in it is called an XLR jack. You need to plug an XLR cord into that and then plug it into an amp that has an XLR or 1/4 inch microphone input (using an adapter).

If she just wants it for looks, then no, you don't need to plug it in.

I got a cable to hook my MXL 990 condenser microphone to my computer and i get no sound. it wont record!!!!!!!!! its a 1/4 male to #-pin XLR female cable


Professional condensor type mikes require a phantom power source to work. That will be a balanced (read XLR) connection from source to preamp and the preamp must be capable of supplying the power. These units cannot be used in an unbalanced circuit (like 1/4" or computer mini-pin). Your best bet for the setup would be to get an external power supply box that can also convert the signal from balanced to unbalanced. That would be what the mike plugs into and then that plugs into the computer. You're probably looking at about 50-100 for even a cheap one that will work well. Companies like Sweetwater and B&H should be able to steer you toward a decent basic unit. If you happen to have a mixer (which is why you bought the good mike) then it may have phantom power for some of its mike inputs.

I have a mic Behringer C1u and would use it with an M-Audio fast track usb interface. How can I do it?


You will need to turn on the phantom power which will be a switch labled eithe PHANTOM or +48V to use the condenser mic. YOu MUST use an XLR to XLR cable.

Mic to PC


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.

Connecting a guitar amp to a mixer amp


Hi cliff

Connect either of the XLR DI output of the Behringer directly to a MIC IN channel on the Powerpod using a standard Microphone cable. If you wish to push a stereo sound then connect both(L + R) of the XLR DI outputs from the amp... that's about all you need to do. The only reason you need to use stereo(both XLR Outs) from the Behringer is if you want a full stereo FX output from the amp, otherwise you can get away with 1 connected. You may need to back the gain off for those channels on the power pod. You can get a manual for the Powerpod from here

and user manual for the acx900 here

Hope this has helped you, If not, feel free to ask any questions. Cheers.
