Make certain you are connecting to a microphone level input.

SOURCE: My shure sm48 is registering almost no volume on

Undo the set screw near where the xlr cable would connect. Use needle nose pliers to gently pull out the connector. Check to see if the connections are solid. Some of the sm48 have switches for on and off, so it could be that as well. hope this helps.

SOURCE: shure sm58 just started outputting very low volume

Check your wire connections inside the mic where the xlr cable connects to the mic. Hopefully your mic has never been dropped as this will damage it. The sm58 is pretty much indestructible, so check your cabling that you use, try a different channel.

Microphone will not hook into computer


What is on each end of the microphone cable in its original form? What's the model of microphone? You need a cable that ultimately (probably need an adapter or two) would have the LO-Z (assuming its a low impedence mic) connector for the microphone on one end and the mini phone plug on the other. If the microphone is low impedance, which most good microphones would be, you will need an impedance matching transformer to convert to high impedance which the computer mic input would expect. That would have a 1/4 inch phone plug output which then needs to be brought down in size to fit the computer mic input. A music store would be your best bet for the required pieces.

The SM58 uses balanced output. If the starsinger uses a 1/4 inch jack, it is unbalanced input and probbly requires a high impedance rather than the low impedance SM58 mic. You can get an impedance transformer to fix that problem.

Distortion on vocal reproduction on Vocalist Live 2. Even with input volume down to minimum a loud vocal performance produces distortion on single voice and harmony output.


You need to check the actual signal levels to make sure they are within the specs for the unit. The mic input is low impedance. Your mic should be like a Shure SM58 or equivalent. The output is fairly high... up to +14DB which will require you to turn down the trims on a mixer this runs into or set a -20Db pad at the input. I suspect your distortion is from the device output to the mixer input. It is VERY important that the mic does NOT "hear" the speakers as the feedback loop resulting will be mass distortion. The guitar should also not "hear" the mains.

Hi. I've connected my Shure 55SH to my netbook via XLR to 1/4", then with an adaptor to my 1/8" port. My recordings all have significant fuzz, but the level doesn't change when I adjust my...


Most likely the 1/8" jack's input is LINE level. The microphone works at a higher IMPEDANCE and will have to be boosted to line level in order to have a matching impedance to the input on your netbook. You can use a mixer, a DI box, or microphone pre-amp to match the LINE level of your 1/8" jack. That will give you more control over level with less noise.

I just bought a Fender VF3 electric violin. It


The piezo pickups for violins REQUIRE a high impedance input preamp.

The measured impedance of My wife's violin is on the order of 2 megohms.

It sounds like you are having cable connection problems. If you don't have a preamp right at the vilin, then use a VERY short high impedance instrument cable.

Most of the Focusrite mic preamps I looked at had input impedance around 5K ohms which is unsuitable for the piezo pickups.

Here we use an Autolycus pickup on an acoustical vilin and an X2 wireless system. The transmiter has a very high input impedance and the resulting system sounds like a violin.

Some amps themselves DO have a high input impedance, but many designed for guitars do not. Long cables, especially low impedance ones, load the piezo pickup with capacitance which clobbers the high frequency response.

I have removed the push to talk button and replaced it with a volume pot but need a wiring diag. from the element to the pot to the XLR. Also, is it possible to wire this to convert it to high impedance?...


The impedance of these mics is around 180 ohms which means you would probably use a pot around 300 to 600 ohms and with an audio taper.

This is NOT a good plan from an engineering standpoint as adding impedance to the balanced mic can allow electrical noise pickup.

The only way to get high impedance is by use of a transformer or a preamplifier. You DON NOT want to run high impedance lines over any distance as they are more subject to noise pickup.

The transformer should be at the far end of the cable run from the microphone. KEEP the impeedance of the cable from the mic LOW until right before a high impedance input amplifier.

I cannot hear myself on the microphone shure sm58


What sort of a preamp are u using this needs to be plugged into the lo impedance XLR input (this is a lo output dynamic mic 1.85Mv out)
The XLR should be input pin 2 return (gnd) pin 3.This mic does not NOT use phantom power (48v) if it is a dual input (pin 1 48v) source make sure the phantom power is turned of.
If this is being done then there maybe a problem with the mic.
You can check this by plugging a source in to the input to check that it is working line out from cd player midi or some other source.
