The microphone may be picking up powerline interference. Could be a poor ground.

SOURCE: My Rode Nt1A also stopped

Removing the silicone bag and not using a pop shield can lead to condensation on the diaphragm. Place it in a bag of rice for a day to dry out any condensation on the capsule.
It may not be due to condensation though. Make sure your phantom power source is working. If possible attach another mic to the same source to see if it works. Check the contacts on the mic and also check the wire for any erosion or debris. If none of these work, fixing the mic may be beyond DIY repair.

SOURCE: I'm buying a Rode NT1A,

Hi, what else do you do think you will need? I don't think you will need any other thing except that before you use the mic, the switch for the phantom power on the microphone is to be activated .Without the phantom being activated, the mic will not work.

It can only be activated with a mixer console that has a phantom activation on it. After connecting the mic to the mixer,activate the phantom power on the mixer and switch on the phantom power on the mic,and problem solved.

Note: Mic will not work if no phantom activated on the mixer.

That all you will need .

Thanks for using fixya....

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.

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.

Rode NT1A: i got an adapter so i can input it in the mic input the pc says an audio device has been put in but i cant find it anywhere! please help me i also have an Acer Z5710


The reason it is not being picked up by your PC is because the NT1A is a condenser microphone and it requires an audio interface that can supply phantom power (48V) to get it powered up. Without phantom power, the NT1A won't work. You many need to buy an external audio interface that provides phantom power to use the mic. Hope that helps.

No sound being picked up when connected, may be as I am using a xlr to usb connection and the power is coming off a laptop , how would I fix this? Thanks


The Rode NT1A requires phantom power of 24-48volts DC. The USB socket on your laptop will only supply 4.5volts.
The solution will be to buy a separate power supply or to connect it to your computer through a mixer that includes a phantom power supply option.

When using my new rode NT1A microphone with pro tools i can record perfectly ok and there is a strong signal going in but the recording sounds muffled and 'cheap' on playback. Do you have any idea as to...


Assuming your preamp, cables, or room, aren't at fault, then your NT1-A is suffering from typical component failure and will need service. Even new mics of this type can be at the end of their useful lives, due to the cheap components used.

Do this work for mixcraft


If you are refering to the softwar Mixcraft, then yes. Combined with a suitible Mixer or Preamp connected to your computer's sound card, or an External Audio Interface with build in Preamp, you will be able to record with the NT1-A.

Your Mixer/Preamp/Interface needs to be capable of providing the mic with Phantom power to operate.

I'm running my NT1A on pro tools Le and the program only seems to be picking up the left or the right signal but not both?????


This is a Mono microphone.

Ensure in pro-tools, you select "Mono" when creating a new track, and select a single channel on your interface.
