I'm trying to run a dr-gx1 into my microphone jack through a twenty-foot livewire xlr to 1/4" cable, using an adapter, but it's not picking up any sound on either my pc or my mac? does this model require a power supply?

From what I can find it doesn't require a power supply. You might have a problem with your adapter.When going from balanced XLR connectors to unbalanced connectors you have to make sure of the proper connections.Theres a good explanation at http://recordingengineering.suite101.com/article.cfm/wire_a_balanced_micro

No sound from mxl 990 condenser mic


From the Micropower PS400 product description it states:

"routes the microphone signal to a mixer or a microphone preamplifier."

• these is just a phantom power supply.


One reason your former setup is OK , is that

tascam m-50 is a mixer preamplifier.

• phantom power supply is just a part of the mic preamp of the mixer

to power up your mxl 990 condenser mic


• What you may need is something like these:

My microphone has has disconected from the plug, how do i fix it,the wire


It can be replaced, but if you are not used to a solder iron, I'd recomend buying a new cable off the shelf. Either female XLR to male XLR or Female Xlr to TS (large 1/4inch jack) depending on what you wish to plug into

Audio-Technica freeway 200 Series VHF Wireless System - I had problems connecting the wireless system with a quarter inch to a xlr. The sound system made a very loud disturbance sound. What cable do I use...


XLR connectors are a two-wire plus ground system. Using a 1/4 inch to XLR adapter may not connect the wires correctly to your sound system input.

The A-T Freeway 200 Series has a 1/4" output jack. This would indicate a line level. A cable to connect the tip of the 1/4" jack to pin 2 of the XLR and the sleeve of the 1/4" jack to pins 1 and 3 of the XLR should work. The XLR should be plugged into a device that accepts line level.

Ideally, you should plug the 1/4" into a 1/4" or RCA jack that is designed for line levels.

I have a crate cpb150 amp i want to connect it to my digitech gsp2101 via livewire stp-202 cable what is the correct way?


I can understand your confusion... and a lot depends how you are going to use this. There are some caveats regarding the connections,
If you use the 1/4 outputs on the GSP, there is a speaker modeling like function that is NOT available, that IS available IF you use the XLR outputs.
The STP is an "Insert Snake" which is not really what you want as it is intended to send and receive (audio going both directions in the cable.
If you want that speaker function, then you should get two XLR to 1/4 TRS cables and go from the XLR's on the GSP to the Left and Right inputs on the back of the Crate. Your audio or guitar then is connected to the GSP guitar input.
If you connect the guitar to the crate and then use the STP, Plug the TRS single connector into the Left/Mono/send/rtn on the Crate. The Send cable of the Y should go to the Send jack on the back of the GSP and the return should go to the left return jack of the GSP. This connection I would NOT recommend as it will be noisier and you will lose the stereo effect capabiltiy since the effect is inserted as a mono.

I believe you would be happier with using the XLR's to carry left and right to the Crate and run your inout to the GSP. In short, you have the wrong cable to do the best job.

I buy a microphone, and I don't now where I have to plug it in, I's called i Carly Microphone, do I need something extra to use it, im trying to plug it in an guitar amplifier...


does it have a cable for it? it should. if it does then just plug it into the amp input jack. there is probably an on/off switch on the mic. i dont know if this is a fixed mic cable or if it is XLR type input on the mic. If there is a place for a cable to plug into the mic at the base of the handle, see if there are 3 pins in the jack of the mic. if so it is XLR, and the amp is 1/4inch so you would need a cable with XLR to 1/4"male. I would go with no shorter than 12 feet, but try to go with 20 to have enough room to move around. Hope that helps.

My shure radio mike has a bass hum


This usually means that the ground wire has broken. Try a new balanced XLR microphone cable and see if the hum goes away. If it doesn't then the problem is either the microphone or the jack that you are plugging the cable into. If you are plugging into a mixer, make sure that the ground pin has not been removed from the power cord. Same thing with the amp that the mixer is plugged into etc. If you think it is the microphone have a look for a small hole on the side of the base of the microphone where the cable plugs into it. Use a small flat bladed screwdriver to tighten that screw in a counterclockwise direction. This will stop the jack in the microphone from wiggling. It also provides a ground for the body of the microphone. If that doesn't help, Try turning it in to remove the jack and examine the wiring. Do this gently. There should be 3 wires on this jack. It is an XLR jack. The wires should be 1= ground, 2= hot and 3= cold. SAme with the plugs on the cable. Hope this helps.

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.

New cable for my Shure Beta 58A Professional


It could be the wiring in the 1/4" jack in your amp. Check the metal contact plates on the 1/4" jack in your amp and see if they are getting contact to the jack. Sometime they get bent.

If the XLR end of the cable can be serviced, check the ground connection to the cable and see if its good.
