If you're going to use a mixer anyway, it'd probably be better to run the mixer into the line-in of the computer. Even better would be to just get a USB recording interface, and do the mixing in the software.

Otherwise, Behringer, Alesis, Yamaha, and probably other all make USB mixers that should be of similar quality (i.e., very low).

Personally, I have two units, both made by M-Audio. The M-Track model is my favorite. It has less background hiss than my older unit.

I use this setup with my Sound Studio program on my Apple Macintosh computer and always get excellent results.

How do I connect my CAD GXL2200 mic to my apple laptop?


You need a USB interface such as an M-Audio M-Track and a standard XLR male to female audio cable.

You use the cable to connect the microphone to the interface using the XLR cable, then you plug the USB cable on the interface to a USB port on your laptop. Finally, you go to System Preferences - Sound - Input and select the USB interface as the input source.

Depending on the software you you use for recording sound (I use Sound Studio from Felt Tip Software) you may need to go into the Preferences for the program and select the USB interface.

I just bought the GXL2200 CAD microphone without the cabels,(thought they would've came with), what kind of cable do i need?


As with most microphones, these mics use XLR cables. You can get them online or in a music store in many different lengths. What you need is XLR male to XLR female, though most of the consumer-level stores will probably just call them "mic cables." Note that the thing you're plugging into will need to have an XLR input, and will need to provide phantom power in order for that mic to work.

Lexicon alpha and gxl2200 microphone


Are you trying to use the mic input on the back or plugging it into the instrument input on the front? If you use a low impedance mic with a quarter inch instrument input cord, you would need a transformer adapter to make the mic work on high impedance. Even if you put it on line in, you would still have to convert it. Only the XLR socket on the back will work on a low impedance mic.

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). .

Can I connect a CAD GXL2200SP Condenser Mic to a computer?


Technically, you can plug any microphone into a computer via an audio interface or USB(if applicable) With this mic it will require an audio interface just remember that since you are using a condenser you will need an interface that can supply phantom power. Good Luck, Cody J.

I have a gxl 2200 mic and my computer acknowledges the mic but i cant record anything because when i play it back there is no sound


You'll need a phantom power source, like an interface or mixer. Otherwise, the mic is likely in need of repair.
