Not sure I fully follow your question but the 3 rd ground wire from the turntable would hook up to the ground screw on the imic

Grounding issue


The preferred approach is to run a ground cable from the turntable to the ground post on the back of your preamp or receiver. This keeps buzz and hum out of the audio signal. If your receiver doesn't have a ground post, you'll have to connect the ground to one of the RCA signal jacks. In both cases the question is, when you have two grounds, which one to connect? You'll have to determine this by trial and error. My guess is you'll get the best results by connecting both, so start with this arrangement. Connect the turntable's audio cables from its RCA jacks to the receiver, select the phono input, and turn it on (with the volume turned down). Turn up the volume until you can hear hum or buzz. Then connect a piece of wire to the ground post on the turntable panel and touch the other end to the ground post on the receiver or to the RCA jack/plug's outer ring. If the hum/buzz goes away, you're good to go and can connect the wire permanently. If not, try the ground cables individually and use the connection that works best.

Connect the RCA phono plug wires usually red and white wires with plugs to a receiver or amplifier in the back of it to phono in. New receivers will not work unless you have a phono preamp. Best to buy a vintage stereo receiver or amplifier with the correct connections. Make sure you connect the ground wire which is usually a small black wire coming from the turntable to an receiver or amplifier. Turn the stereo receiver on phono. Connect it to any screw attached to metal on back or look for a ground screw. If you do not attach it it will hum.

Where can I plug in a microphone on my PC G4, need it to help in learning a new language?


It depends on which G4 you have. If it's a Quicksilver , there is no Mic in, and you'll need a USB audio adaptor to connect a microphone.
Other G4s, it's on the back, right next to sound out.

I have an old(30yrs) record player(separates). One phono lead has broken.It seems to have a seperate earth wire in the lead.How do I wire a new plug. Will an new ordinary plug suffice?


Here is the connection for the new RCA connector:
technical114_21.jpg
The extra ground lead (yes indeed there is one separate ground lead) you can connect it at any grounding point at your preamplifier (or at the ground point of the RCA you are about to replace). You can use any RCA connector you like, there will be no problem (assuming that the connections are correct). I suppose that you know that you need a phono preamplifier (with RIAA equalization) in order to use this turntable.
In case you need more details on that point, or if a problem come up, or clarification or further details needed, don't hesitate to post me a reply before rejecting my answer.
If you are satisfied, rate my solution with the "thumbs" or (even better) add a testimonial.

Thanks and regards

IMic doesn't work with Logic Pro 9


I had a similar problem, but I managed to solve it; however, I'm using different recording software. The iMic simply does not have built-in input monitoring. Chances are, you are getting an input-signal but it is not being monitored. Try to find some kind of input-monitoring in your recording software. I found a toolbar, in my recording software, called "playback state" that has an option for input-monitoring. Search the help file index, within your software, to find something similar. Here's a quote from iMic's quickstart guide that might be of further assistance:

"In order to hear your turntable or microphone, you will need to enable an important preference in your recording software, usually called “Playthrough.” It may also be called Monitor, Passthrough, Cue, Preview, etc. Enabling such a feature tells the software how to route your audio, and is necessary for monitoring even when not recording."

Moreover, once you've solved this, I recommend using the iMic for both input and output, as latency with onboard-sound-output will likely be intolerable for input monitoring.

What all can I attach a turntable ground wire to?


Connecting to another piece of equipment besides the mixer introduces the possibility of creating a ground loop, which, of course, is not desirable.

Just make a splice using Stakons (crimper). Just cut off the existing connector and crimp a (red) round crimp to the existing ground wire. Then take a length of same gauge and crimp a round a (red) spade Stakon on the other end. Then take a nut and bolt and connect the 2 round connectors and tape with good black tape (Scotch 33 or similar). That will get you through the Gig.

To my knowledge this is no switchable pre-amp on this unit. Just connect to your own phono pre-amp and you should be ok.

IMick on Mac Mini


Yes, it does work for the mini (I have the same). Drivers seem to be built into the system, so you don't need to download anything with OS X 3.9 or later. Make sure your switch on iMic is switched AWAY from the mike input plug, and you may try plugging your iMic directly into your MacMini (or through a powered 2.0 hub).

Good luck.

If it still doesn't work then check if the usb port u have connected it in is functional..u can check this by connecting some other device like scanner, webcam etc., into it..
If it still doesn't work..the the device is probably faulty and u might want to get it replaced..
