SOURCE: SE2200A "wind" noises during recording

Its very descriptive and is quite a common problem with less expensive condenser mics. It's due to dirt or contamination on the capsule insulator or front end circuitry of the electronics. SE should be able to fix it for not much money.

SOURCE: no recording?

In garageband when you have the gtrack set up , it will show you 2 options for input source 'USB Audio CODEC'. This is because you have 2 lines in, the mic and the jack. Make sure you have picked the correct one to record the vocals...otherwise it is expecting the jack input and will record nothing.

Hope this helps!

SOURCE: Shure T2 SM58 intermittent transmit

Two screws on the back of the battery casing, then prise out the battery tray (it's a detachable moulded tray in the mic body) using a small screwdriver in the slot near the power button. Under the threads of the battery cover is screw which holds in the PCB, unscrew this. Take the full mic head off (not just the ball, but an inch further down with the capsule in it), and remove the circlip inside. The PCB then slides out towards the head end of the mic.

Does ksm 27 shure need a program to use on a MacBook air?


This mic is not a USB mic so it will need an adapter to go from XLR connector to USB.
The Mac OS should see the microphone once it is connected. Open the System Preferences, Sound control panel and choose the new mic input. It should now be available in the programs that access that input.

Shure beta 57A ..low recording volume from acoustic piano ...Directly to laptop no mixer used


are you using an interface?
Your level will be always be lower if you are going straight in.
Your interface and mixer will help you get the correct level in to your system before recording and also shaping the sound after the recording.You just need to get more gain up in there

I recorded videos at a concert with the new nikon coolpix L810 and the sound on the video is horrible.What is causing the noise in my video? sounds like wind is blowing or a crackling noise


The problem is the microphone on the camera. The mic on the camera is for recording sound in more normal environments. The sound level on a typical concert is much higher than normal, and the mic on the camera just doesn't have what it takes to record sound at those levels.

One possible solution is to record the sound with a dedicated audio recording device, and combine the video and audio in your video editing software.

The recording level to my Mbox is very low for some reason. I am running Pro Tools LE and I have a shure 87a microphone. Every time I attempt to record a track, the input volume is incredibly low...


Make sure you turn the Phantom power on the Mbox2 on as the Shure 87A requires it being a condenser mic.Make sure you use XLR mic cables. These are just things to check on.

I'm using Audacity with a Shure SM58 mic, and the recording plays back fine when the mic is unplugged, but if it is still plugged in when I press Play, there is no sound and the light on the mic's chord...


I assume you are using the X2u USB adapter. When plugged in, the X2u acts as your sound card for recording and playback. Thus the playback will be on the headphone jack of the X2u. You can select which sound card to use for playback in the Windows Sound Control Panel.

Static sound


basic stuff to check: The xlr cable is good, the phantom power supplied to it is good.

If you are using it for close mic vocal recording, and not using a pop filter, or a wind/spit screen...the capsule can eventually get moist/humid, and a similar sound can occur. Hope this helps.

Wind noise on vhs


Hi Claire

Wind noise is very common when recording outside.

Firstly, make sure the microphone you use is uni-directional. This means it will work in the same way that a television antenna does, in that it will pick up sound from the direction it points in, but sounds from other directions will be attenuated. These mics are often used by broadcasters and those in noisy situations, football matches etc.

Secondly, make sure your microphone is fitted with a good foam wind cover. If it already has one, fit a thicker one. This is the single most important thing you can do to cut down on wind noise. You can always get yourself some foam and wrap it around the microphone, right over the top, and tie it with a piece of string.
It sounds a bit wacky, but even pro broadcasters do this from time to time.

Finally, consider using an extension mic cable and positioning it closer to the signal source. Be careful though. If the neighbours are that bad, make sure you are not on your own.

Good luck and best wishes
Helen
