I bought a GXL2200 and i cant hear my vocals.

When its hooked up to my lexicon interface ...my levels are really low.On playback mode all i hear is distortion around my vocals.Is this a damaged product? The GXL1200 came with it and it sounds great way better than other mic.When i opened the product it had a couple dents on the screen should i just send it back?

The GXL 2200 is a condensor microphone. It needs Phantom power to operate, and get the correct levels for recording. Your lexicon interface should have a button/switch that says +48V phantom power, or something similar. This needs to be enabled before the GXL 2200 will work.

    So does the 1200 that came with it, and it is working fine. Try reading the question thouroughly before answering.

What USB adapter is best to use with the GXL2200?


If you're going to use a mixer anyway, it'd probably be better to run the mixer into the line-in of the computer. Even better would be to just get a USB recording interface, and do the mixing in the software.

Otherwise, Behringer, Alesis, Yamaha, and probably other all make USB mixers that should be of similar quality (i.e., very low).

How do I connect my CAD GXL2200 mic to my apple laptop?


You need a USB interface such as an M-Audio M-Track and a standard XLR male to female audio cable.

You use the cable to connect the microphone to the interface using the XLR cable, then you plug the USB cable on the interface to a USB port on your laptop. Finally, you go to System Preferences - Sound - Input and select the USB interface as the input source.

Depending on the software you you use for recording sound (I use Sound Studio from Felt Tip Software) you may need to go into the Preferences for the program and select the USB interface.

I just bought the GXL2200 CAD microphone without the cabels,(thought they would've came with), what kind of cable do i need?


As with most microphones, these mics use XLR cables. You can get them online or in a music store in many different lengths. What you need is XLR male to XLR female, though most of the consumer-level stores will probably just call them "mic cables." Note that the thing you're plugging into will need to have an XLR input, and will need to provide phantom power in order for that mic to work.

I have a gxl 2200 mic and my computer acknowledges the mic but i cant record anything because when i play it back there is no sound


You'll need a phantom power source, like an interface or mixer. Otherwise, the mic is likely in need of repair.

I get a quiet signal when using the mic.


Hi,

You should use the mic input of your computer.
If it's not there, use a microphone pre-amplifier.

Bought an MXL V88 Mic and i hear no sound ,not working


go to control panel> hardware and sound> sound; click recording tab, select USB Audio Codec, select Properties, click Advanced tab, select 2 Channel 16 bit 44100Hz and then hit apply. You have to make sure you have the 2 channel option selected. otherwise the computer just recognizes one channel and assigns it for playback. HTH
