Question about Sony One-Point ECM-MS907 Consumer Microphone

Problem recording in stereo

My ECM-MS907 microphone only records in mono. I'm using it with a Sony MZM10 minidisc recorder. It works fine with the ECM-DS70P mic that came with the recorder so I think the ECM-MS907 might be broken. Does anybody have experience with the same problem or any other idea what the problem might be? I've tried chancing the batteries.

B2 Pro left stereo channel is Mute

This is not a stereo microphone. There is no left channel. If you are recording into a stereo input, you need to split the input into two mono inputs, and record each channel as a mono track.

When I record vocals with stereo setting it always records left more in favour of the right. Is there a way to fix this?

Your microphone is a mono input (one), therefore recording in stereo is not practical. Stereo inputs are left and right (two inputs). Whatever your recording setup or audio workstation, the track you record to from your microphone needs to mono.

AKG Perception Microphone ony recording in mono but want stereo.

I have similar problems with inputing stereo sound. How do you know your mic port on the PC is set for stereo? What kind of a cable are you using? If it is an XLR, the connection is pure mono. Maybe you need a TRS cable, which looks like a 1/4 inch jack but is really stereo. Maybe you need a stereo mini. Usually a cable mismatch is the problem. Is your phantom power supply passing stereo? All the ones I have seen are mono. You may need two. Is your sound capture set for stereo? Are the input level controls set correctly for equal volume on left or right channel? I would try the mic with a regular amplifier to insure both channels are working. Then trace the signal from mic to power supply and power supply to computer.

Left channel only

If you take it to a store then you can probably have it sent to sony who will give you an estimate before fixing it. This mic offers one of the best cost performance ratios so you will probably end up buying another one. Upon that assumption, ifthe repair quote is less than about 70% of the retail price then it may be worth getting it repaired. I have found sony repairs (to a digital camera) to be reasonably priced.

IT DOES NOT WORK ECM-MS907 Professional...

Just in case you have having the same problem as me....

The reason why my microphone was giving mixed results was because I was using the wrong setting. The microphone slider says "90 degrees" and "120 degrees." I assumed that these angles refered to the area that the microphone picked up. So for a single narrow sound source, like my voice, the narrower, 90 degrees setting seemed appropriate.

Now that I have looked at the manual I see it is the reverse (weird but true. Perhaps the angles refer to the angles that the microphone ignores completely under each setting?).

I have been recording my voice. I noticed that sometimes the sound was good and other times the sound level was too low. I think that the reason is because sometimes I inadvertantly set the microphone to the 120 degree setting, which picks up my voice well, while at other times I set the mic to the 90 degree setting which attempts to pick up sound from a wider area, giving the central source less prominence.Setting the microphone to the 120 degree setting cured my problem. I hope it cures your problem too.

The manual is here:

Samson co1u recording issue

you first 3 people are idiots... maybe if you had worked with the hardware you would know how the mic works because its obvious you don't. The 4th person is correct because this is exactly how i use the mic and it captures sound in stereo format beautiful when set up rite. Using it in mono, whether use keep on one channel or two drastically reduces the crisp sound that this mic can record.

Playback only on left speaker

The quick, easy solution is to change your microphone to mono recording. In the attached YouTube clip, I'll show you how to do that.

The short and simple is to go to your Mac HD -> Applications -> Utilities -> Audio MIDI Setup. Select your C01U USB device, and set it to 1ch 16bit. This will set the microphone to record in mono, equally over both speakers.

Recording issues

My first guess would be that the minidisc player does not provide enough power for the mic. I believe Sony makes an external battery pack to compensate for these problems. Hope this helps!

Problem recording when connected to computer

In the volume control panel look for mic boost and tick the box to boost the microphone volume. It's under options properties/Advanced controls etc.
