It is a pad..which is a switch that will 'reduce' sound level or volume which in a nutshell is useful for recording loud instruments..So switch to -10 db if placing the mic fairly close to say loud drum or horns..etc..

Have you got the body pack attenuation switch set to 20dB? Try it on 0dB.

How do you set the switches on AT3525 Mike?


The AT3525 handles very high sound pressure
levels with ease, accepting as high as
146 dB SPL before producing 1% T.H.D. A
switchable 10 dB (nominal) pad is built-in,
increasing its capabilities to 156 dB SPL.
An integral 80 Hz hi-pass filter provides easy
switching from a flat frequency response to a
low-end roll-off. The hi-pass position reduces
the microphone's sensitivity to popping in
close vocal use. It also reduces the pickup of
low-frequency ambient noise (such as traffic,
air-handling systems, etc.), room reverberation
and mechanically-coupled vibrations.

I use a sE2200a and a BLUE icicle preamp for basic vocal recording. My problem is that the kind of work I do requires quite a bit of loud, sometimes even yelling recordings. But no matter what I do, I...


You can pad down the mic some more with a shure in line mic pad, from your local audio store, this will fix the problem, the mic is putting out too much level for the rest of your rig.

Thanks for using FixYA

Can you tell me the plug wiring mike end


It should be standard balanced XLR. The wiring is 1= ground/shield, 2=hot(+ve), 3=cold (-ve). Do not bridge any of the pins especially not 1 and 3 if you are using phantom power with this microphone. Let me know if this helps please.

SE2200A "wind" noises during recording


Its very descriptive and is quite a common problem with less expensive condenser mics. It's due to dirt or contamination on the capsule insulator or front end circuitry of the electronics. SE should be able to fix it for not much money.

SE2200a rapid signal drop off


I had the same problem with my Saffire: the phantom power voltage quickly drops when switched on, causing the mic to cut out. This problem is common in older Saffires, and is well known to Focusrite support (a modification in newer-production units solves the problem).

The problem is that a tiny 100 ohm surface-mount "chip" resistor in the phantom power circuit fails due to insufficient power-handling capability. (This is "R196" in the phantom circuit.)

The fix is to replace the "chip" resistor with a "normal" 1/2 watt metal-film resistor (with wire leads), mounted upright on the circuit board.

I replaced the resistor myself, following directions (and photos) sent to me by Focusrite Tech Support.

The procedure is somewhat fiddly (a Swiss watchmaker could probably do OK). If you've never soldered before, DON'T EVEN TRY THIS, and if you've never worked with surface-mount components, I would ask your electronics-hobbyist buddy to do it for you.

Here is the procedure sent to me by Focusrite:


Normal 0 false false false MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 st1\:*{behavior:url(#ieooui) } /* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name:"Table Normal"; mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0; mso-tstyle-colband-size:0; mso-style-noshow:yes; mso-style-parent:""; mso-padding-alt:0in 5.4pt 0in 5.4pt; mso-para-margin:0in; mso-para-margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:10.0pt; font-family:"Times New Roman"; mso-ansi-language:#0400; mso-fareast-language:#0400; mso-bidi-language:#0400;} SAFFIRE PHANTOM POWER MODIFICATIONS

Dismantling the Unit

Remove the 7 screws on the rear panel.
Remove the 4 screws on the underside of the unit.
Lift away the metal cover.
Remove the 4 small black screws securing the MIDI In/Out sockets.
Remove the single screw securing the S/PDIF In/Out sockets.
Remove the two screws securing this PCB to the chassis.
Gently pull the PCB away from the rear panel and move it through 90 degrees towards the front panel.
Place the unit on its front and support the PCB with some suitable non-conductive item.

Modification Procedure

All the components mentioned are located in the same area on the same PCB (see photo).
It is best to remove the coil and capacitor (as shown in the second photo), as this gives easier access to the components.
Remove R196 and measure its resistance. If it does not measure 100 ohms, replace it.
Use a conventional type (100 ohms metal film, .5 or .6 watt) mounted upright as shown in the photo. Before fitting this resistor, check that the three zener diodes DZ11, DZ12 (22v) and DZ9 (3.3v) are OK and have not shorted out. (Diodes are 500mW, 5% tolerance)

Testing units for Phantom Power problems

Connect a condenser Mic or suitable dummy load* to Channel 1.
Engage +48 switch.
Measure the DC voltage between XLR pins 2 & 1 on Channel 2 Mic Input XLR.
Faulty units usually read around +28Vdc and the voltage gradually drops.
Good unts will measure +48Vdc +/- 0.7Vdc.

* Dummy Load for testing: Solder a 20,000 ohm resistor between pin 2 and pin 1 of a male XLR plug and another 20,000 ohm resistor between pin 3 and pin 1 of the same XLR plug.

My Saffire has worked perfectly since I replaced the bad resistor.

Good Luck!
