Question about Behringer B-1 Professional Microphone

Open Question

No signal/sound coming from my mic into interface/laptop

I just purchased a new Behringer B1 condenser mic. Used professional mics and equipment a bit before but can't seem to make it work. Plugged in my electro acoustic guitar using the same XLR and interface and it worked perfectly but no signal or sound coming through when I plug in the mic. It has a little switch with 3 settings on it and I tried all 3, tried adjusting the controls on the interface but I got nothing! Please help!

SOURCE: why is my mic not picking up noise like it did when i first gotit

Double-check on the side of the microphone to make sure you didn't inadvertently activate the 10db pad.  If so, switch it back to the center position.
Also, on the US-122, make sure that the input is set to "mic" and that you have switched the Phantom Power to the "On" position.

Check the input and output settings. Look in the preferences or settings menu for "i/o settings" or "i/o setup." You're going to set it from the default internal mic input to this one. It sounds like it may be that simple.

SOURCE: how to connect behringer ultragain pro mic

Here is the manual:http://www.behringer.com/EN/downloads/pdf/MIC2200_P0054_M_ENG.pdf Plug your microphone into the input using a proper cable. Plug another balanced cable into the output on the back and plug it into a microphone input on the mixing board. If your mixing board already has phantom power, disable it for that input as the MIC2200 has phantom power. Read the manual carefully and take note of the directions for phantom power and balanced cables. Make sure you follow the directions carefully. If you need the manual in a different language look the MIC2200 up under products at Behringer.com and you can download in pdf format in many different languges.

SOURCE: I have a mic Behringer

You can't do that, the C-1U is an usb mic, so you can only connect it through an usb cable, if you want to use it with the m-audio interface, you need to get a normal C-1 or any other mic with XLR connector.

I bought a ecm8000 mic recently thinking i was buying just a quality condenser mic...but apparently i've bought a measurement mic...how do i get it to work.? i have it hooked up to audiobox u


If it has the 1/4 inch type of male plug that is mono [a tip and ring connection only] you need to make up some sort of voltage/ bypass capacitor circuit. If you were to write to me directly, I can send you a simple circuit- computerlen@hotmail.com.

I have an rode nt1-a microphone, roland quad capture interface, but when im gonna record or put the input level i hear wind, i turn down the input volume all the way down, i still see the input signal


The Rode NT1A mic is a condenser mic and therefore it REQUIRES that "phantom" power be supplied by the mixer or amplifier. You will get only electronic "noise" if the mic is not receiving this power. Look up Phantom power to understand it. Essentially DC power is sent up the mic cable between the signal lines and the shield of the cable and is used by the electronics in the mic to amplify the signal from the condenser element.

What is the best way to run the mic on desktop


Your condensor mic requires special electrical handling usually reserved for proffesional audio equipment, not a PC. You will need two pieces of equipment, a short XLR cable and an adapter cable.
1) Behringer PS400 Ultra-Compact Phantom Power Supply.
This will supply the mic with necessary Phantom Power.
2) Rapco Horizon ISOBLOX Transformer Isolation 1:1 BLOX Device
This will isolate the Phantom Power from your computer, allowing it to work as necessary.
The adaptor connector cable you need will be a female XLR (with pins 1 and 3 shorted, pin 2 hot), through a cable connect to a 1/8" mini plug. They connect in that order with a short XLR cable between 1) and 2). .

PMP6000 mic level is low


Have you PFL'd the signal from the mic to see what level you're getting? You mentioned phantom on....are you actually using a condenser mic? What model mic is it? Are you using XLR or phone plug? EQ set flat? Do you have another mic/cable to try? Anything else plugged into the board has strong signal?

Hi I bought a Behringer C-1 Mic. And when I plug it into my xynyx 502, the LED of the C-1 open. But! my xynyx does not! receive any signal... Please help. did you think my C-1 is broke? because it was new...


That's a condenser microphone. Make sure you have on your phantom power. Should be a button or switch somewhere on the mixer ( individual channel or switch by power switch or in master section for +48v). All condenser mics require this.

I have a Behringer Mic C-1U and its not powering up!


How to Operate a Behringer C-1U

The Behringer C-1U is a USB condenser mic for recording individual instruments. A condenser microphone is a mic that uses vibrations produced by sound to change the distance of internal plates that produce signal. Condenser mics typically require an extra change, known as phantom power, to operate. Since the C-1U is USB powered, phantom power is not needed. The Behringer C-1U has a frequency response that favors sounds around the 10KHz range. This heightens the clarity of recorded signals due to the microphone's treble boost.

Things You'll Need:

* Computer with USB 2.0 port
* USB cable
* Recording software

Instructions

Turn on the computer. When the operating system loads, connect the microphone.

Install any necessary drivers for the C-1U. This will happen automatically when the device is connected.

Select the Behringer C-1U as an input source in any desired audio software. In Windows, click the "Volume" icon in the task bar to open the mixer. Select the C-1U as the primary input. On Macs, use the "Audio/MIDI Setup" in the "System Preferences" menu to select the C-1U as the primary input


Note: make sure you activate the phantom power on the mic. That's the only way to power up the microphone.

Have a nice day.

No signal to Digital Recoder


If the a95fp is a transformer that goes from xlr to 1/4inch, it will not pass phantom power. Your mic needs phantom power to operate.

Connecting an M Audio Fast Track USB to a Behringer XENYX 1002


I suppose that you connect the behringer mixer master out (just one of the two channels in case of two) to the guitar input of the Fast Track. Have you tried to hear your mic from the phones output at the front panel of the Fast Track? Try changing the guitar gain and the output level at the top of the Fast track.

I'm waiting for your results or clarification, please post.

Thanks and regards

My microphone doesn't do it right.


Some of the Podcast mics are condenser mics and MUST be used with a preamp or DEVICE that supplies PHANTOM power to the mic.

You computer DOESN"T supply Phantom power.

Read up on Phantom power in Google to understand it.

Lexicon Lamda Problem


I have a Sterling st-51 condenser mic and purchased a Behringer xenyx 1002b mixer. Similar problem, dynamic mics work in low impedence with or without phantom pwr on. My Washburn acoustic bass with preamp in line input section. So I tried it on my Omega Lexicon interface. The condenser mic and everything else works on the Omega. This unit has a wall wart ( your Lambda is USB powered). I checked the voltages with a meter and found 23 volts from the mixer and 48 volts from the Omega. Further, I have two Shure SM-82 line mics which work on the mixer with the inputs turned all the way down but do not work on the Omega nor on my Spirit SX mixer which has 48 volts phantom power. The SM-82s are old line mics that have a 9.6 volt battery in the sleeve. They overload badly in all but the 1002B mixer. Their voltage should run btwn the 9.6 battery or a 22 volt phantom power.

Check your Lambda voltage, It could be way less than needed by the st-51. I will check with a friend who has the Lambda and check its voltage. Bet it is too low.

Again, My St-51 and 1002B mixer combo barely works at 23volts, the Mic gain is all the way up as is the channel slider and the main output slider. I cant get any reading on my led meters, occasional bump on the first light, no possible way to clip the input or the output and have to turn the high eq off and the mid way back due to hiss noise. Hope this helps,couldn't find minimum voltages on the ST-51 as yet.
