Re: can not find cd to install mic

Microphones do not require software or drivers to operate. First, double click on the volume icon located in the system tray. If you do not see the volume control for Mic, then you will need to make it show up by going to Options --> Properties --> Check the box labeled Microphone --> Click Ok. You should now be able to see the volume control for the Mic. Make sure that this is not muted and the sound is turned up. Second, you must have a sound card installed in your computer that supports microphones. Please check with your cards manufacturer or PC manufacturer to make sure.

How do I take apart a beta52a?

Unscrew the grill and look for a plastic piece that holds the capsule in place. This plastic piece also can be unscrewed and will allow you to reach the PC board inside. Check for broken wiring (most common problem) but low output usually indicates a damaged mic capsule that must be replaced.

There is a horrible echo whenever i try to record and then there's a loud noice that sounds like a very high-pitched whistle and i don't know what to do.

This type of audio feedback loop can happen on any mic if you are playing back audio at a loud volume on speakers that are close to the mic while the mic is on - which tends to happen on Skype calls. Try lowering your speaker volume or using headphones to hear the audio, then speak into mic, and the feedback should be reduced.

I got a pre-amp (Focusrite Platinum Trakmaster Pro) with phantom +48v. i got an M-Audiophile 2496 installed to the comp. and a mic Rode nt1A. Eveything is plugged in and installed and iv'e...

the process of elimation will help you to solve your issue. first plug the rode nt1 (great mic by the way), into a good pa head or something you know works, of course you will need to have a pa that gives you phantom power. if the mic works then move on to the preamp. try it in the pa too, if it works move on to the m-audiophle and plug a line level signal into it (a cd player or mp3 player for instance) it this works then you have determined that everything works and you don't actully have a problem other than switching, Also try plugging your mic into the M-audiophle directly and see if thaat works ( don't know if that provides the 48 volts, if it doesn't than you will have to get a phantom supply to plug into first. good luck

most likely a loose connection inside suggest,
check battery is held tight in place, if not then it might be possible to very gently bend the battery terminals just enough to help the connection.
if not battery connections then its inside the mic could be the power or the capsule wiring, need a tech or the dealer to take a look

hope this helps
thanks for using FixYa

Ours broke and the only other place we could find one was from the dealer and it was even more expensive. Do your tower speakers still work without the mic?

Cd vs. microphone

A few possibilites.

1. Even though you have some kind of peak limiting on your mics, the signal might still be peaking somewhere along the audio path and causing distortion. Gain controls might be set too high somewhere along the way.

2. The amp you are using might simply be driving too much power for the speakers to handle.

3. A faulty connection, connector, wire or input could cause distortion of something like distortion which is of course would be more apparent at higher volumes.

4. Equipment placement could be picking up sounds or interference from other sources.

5. If you are able to discern level peaks but they are occasional and not flat out, then a compressor placed in the mic signal path could certainly help - otherwise see # 1 above.

Best of luck in solving this.

When you say working in some places but not others, do you mean it works on some channels but not others?

I'm sure you are aware that condensers will not work without phantom power. I'd suggest trying your mic through a different system (if there are non available try your local music venue, if you ask the engineer nicely I'm sure he'll let you test it on their rig). Also try a diffenent condenser on all channels of your mixer, and also try a dynamic mic as well just for thoroughness.

I can't really give you an answer to this unless you've tested with other equipment to identify which part of your rig is faulty.

To be honest I wouldn't be surprised if it was your mixer, I've always found behringer gear to be pretty crap quality.

Also it might be a stupid question but have you tried using a different cable?
