Question about AKG Perception 100 Microphone

Open Question

Can I test if recording problems are due to Perception 100 fault?

I have been using a perception 100 with a lexicon lambda for some time successfully. recently, i had a bad problem with noisy crackles in my recordings. This turned out to be a partial broken wire in the microphone cable and is now fixed with a replacement cable, but the quality of recordings is poorer than it was and I am wondering how I can find out whether the problem is with the Perception 100 or with the Lambda. I have asked lexicon how I can test the lambda but am wondering if anyone can tell me how I can test the microphone for a fault?

SOURCE: AKG Perception 100 not working, at all

The problem is that your amp probably doesn't have phantom power. This mic requires phantom power to be supplied to it via the XLR connector. Most mixers and mic pres have that feature, but most guitar amps do not, I believe. Hope that helps...

SOURCE: AKG Perception Microphone ony recording in mono but want stereo.

I have similar problems with inputing stereo sound. How do you know your mic port on the PC is set for stereo? What kind of a cable are you using? If it is an XLR, the connection is pure mono. Maybe you need a TRS cable, which looks like a 1/4 inch jack but is really stereo. Maybe you need a stereo mini. Usually a cable mismatch is the problem. Is your phantom power supply passing stereo? All the ones I have seen are mono. You may need two. Is your sound capture set for stereo? Are the input level controls set correctly for equal volume on left or right channel? I would try the mic with a regular amplifier to insure both channels are working. Then trace the signal from mic to power supply and power supply to computer.

SOURCE: stopped working. occasionally will power up. can't open it.

to open it look where the lead enters the microphone body you will see a circular rebate surrounding the connector, there are two notches opposite each other you will need to buy or make a tool to fit into the rebate and locate into the notches and simply unscrew. do not attempt to unscrew th body as you will damage the microphone..

SOURCE: crackling noise and low volume

If the mic is a condensor you would need to have phantom power, or it will not work. Use a small mixer or externat power supply. We here at Pro Line Music Have small mixers that have phantom power. 215-736-8055

SOURCE: my akg perception 200 is not responding

Have you tried using a another XLR cable..,or are the other mics phantom powered condensers..ie try to locate if its a mic problem or the cable..2 other points are 1 - XLR leads for phantom mics need to be XLR to XLR male to Female plugs[ends] 2- is that often an XLR to XLR cable will be not soldered or wired right,so that the power [phantom power is not getting to the mic] so ensure you have a proper cable for that job...Sorry i can't be more specific but from reading your problem all these issues come to mind..If you have ruled all these things out,then it could be the capsule or loose joint or component in the mic which means contact AKG,pro audio services or find a DIY mic person to help..G luck!!

Sometimes power comes on and sometimes it does not.


Are you running Vista? Lexicon is working on some firmware and software updates to fix the problem. The only workaround is to unplug and replug your USB cable when it stops working. As long as you are actually using the Lambda, it should work.
