I want to use my rode NT1-A on my laptop. how do i do so?

you need a recording interface (with phantom power if the mic requires that - most condensor mics need phantom power) to go from the mic to the interface, then to the computer. There are many USB recording interfaces - some easy plug and play interfaces include:

Then on your computer you need an application such as audacity (if windows), cubase, sonar, logic, pro tools, or any other audio recording app that will allow you to record and edit tracks. From there, you can install many different plugins or apps that can process the audio and add effects to the tracks like reverb, delay, distortion, etc.

I am getting a high pitch poping sound from my atm25 bass drum mic

If this is only when you hit the bass drum, it's picking up feedback from being too far inside the drum or pointed at the wrong part of the head. Use a mic stand and position the mic off to the side, but in front of the head, pointed at the midway point between the center and edge of the drum head. This should eliminate the problem. If the noise is still present, have someone qualified to work on microphones look at it to determine what the problem is.

Hope that helps!

I just brought the nt1-a and plugged it in to my cakewalk UA-25 EX and nothing ...No sound from the mic ...

  • Be sure Phantom power is on.
  • Check that other mics or sources work properly through the interface.
  • Check that the mic functions through another mixer/interface.

My akg perception 200 is not responding

Have you tried using a another XLR cable..,or are the other mics phantom powered 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!!

I have no sound from my E6

Check the headset closely around the mic capsule and ear attachment for placing the mic on your ear. This is prone to problems from bending the mic to fit different people. You may find a break in the metal under clear rubber material. Also the cable itself could have a problem. Countryman sells the cable and it unplugs rather easily. There is a junction in the cable that is actually a plug. You can pull it apart there. Be careful as the mic is very expensive. Also countryman provides excellent technical support. Good luck.

Audio feedis crossing with my speaker feed with and without the microphone plugged in.

Your mic still picks up sound when it's unplugged ?
As far as the other prob goes that sounds like howl round ( feedback ), mute the mic when not talking through it or get a mic with a cardioid polar response pattern ( just ask for a cardioid mic, can get a hypercardioid or supercardioid too but a cardioid would be best for your application, point the mic right at your speaking position with the back of the mic pointing at the speakers wich ideally should be behind the mic, this will help cancel out their sound, puting a limiter on the mic and setting it where it only starts picking up sound when you talk directly into it will help too, but the sure fire way to solve the prob is to mute the mic when not speaking into it. What you definitely don't want is an omnidirectional mic, for what you are using a mic for.

No Sound Coming out my Microphone

i know this might sound a little obvious and maybe irrelevant to the problem, but did you press the switch on the mic? it will turn the mic on and off. make sure sound and mic are unmuted in windows volume control. if both are these didnt solve the problem, test the mic on another computer. if the mic works, maybe its not the mic that has the problem. if the mic doesnt work, then your mic may be defective or damaged in some way or other.
