Hello I'm Having Difficulties Setting Up My AT2020 Cardioid Condenser Microphone It's Not Picking Up My Voice At All And I've Looked Through All The Settings And Audio Properties And Everything Is In Order...


Your microphone needs a phantom power supply. Sorry for asking but you don't mentioned anything about any mic-preamplifier or other device. In case you connect the mic direct at the sound card of the PC, this is your problem. Please clarify me your set up in order to make you suggestions.

In case of a problem 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.

When i recored my vocals they are delayed so it goes over the beat instead of being on top of it and right on point


This is a common problem with recording multi-track sounds on a computer. It is caused by something that is known as 'latency' - basically it is down to the fact that the signal from your microphone takes a different route through the system to that taken by the audio playback. The AT2020 is a USB microphone and the signal therefore has to pass through the USB bus circuit of your computer. Despite claims of multi-tasking your computer cannot do everything at once so it naturally creates delays to make itself work properly. This will be more of a problem with a computer which has a 'cut-down' processor such as a Celeron (Intel) or Duron/Sempron (AMD). These processors are really only intended for basic computing (office type) use and are not really up to the high demands of video or audio recordings.
You may get some improvement by tweaking some of the audio settings for your sound-card to change the hardware acceleration.
This article may help you http://www.pcmus.com/latency.htm
If you are using a dedicated midi /music recording program such as Cubase then you may be able to correct the time lag using the 'quantise' function after recording your vocals. However the best solution is likely to be a hardware one Either buy a proper multi-track mixer/recorder designed for the purpose or get a second USB microphone - play your backing track on an external device - using one microphone to capture your voice and one to re-record the backing track (the only downside for this second option will be a gradual degrading of the sound quality each time it is re-cycled)

I plug my mic into my mac and try and use Garage Band. The playback has a bunch of static noise no matter how high the volume of my mic is. How do I fix this problem? My email is ty_smith22@hotmail.com


The standard ports on a mac are not the best for audio production. their impedance are quite low an I have found lots of recordings to come out clipped or like you say, full of noise.

Best think to do is to get a cheap USB 2 or firewire external soundcard. One of the best moves to bring a mac to audio life.
M-audio make a good range from ok price to quite pricey :-)

I dropped the audio technica at2020 mic and when i record it doesn't pick anything


Most likely it could be two things either a connection is not getting current anymore. my 2020s have went through hell and no problems. or the other suggestion is that your phantom power is not being sent from your preamp to the microphone (not to make you feel stupid, just a reoccuring problem on this board.)
Good Luck, Cody J.

My mic keeps getting this popping noise wen i record, i have a pop filter an it's not a wind noise it's a crackling sound


Is it a condenser mic? Either your mic is bad or you need to add a compresser to your signal path...

Microphone gives a really boomy distorted sounds on certain chords with an acoustic guitar


Hi Nic

Thats exactly how you do it:) Some times it doesnt matter what you do, you will get strange resonances. Careful EQ is the best way to tone it down. Some guitars will present boominess on certain notes, thats just the way they are. Acoustics rely on this boominess to some degree. Good luck and happy recording. :) Happy to talk more to you about it.
