Does a MXL 990 microphone work without an inbox ?


You must connect the mic to a mixing board or similar unit which will provide Phantom Power to the mic for it to work.

Does an MXL 990 microphone only work with an inbox?


By "inbox" do you mean a transformer that powers it?
Condenser mics need 48 volts (phantom power) to run, so you normally switch the phantom power button on for the channel you have the condensor mic. plugged into.

Make sure the Phantom Power on the Audio buddy is on. If that fails, get in touch with MXL and they will troubleshoot it with you.

I bought a MXL 990 USB, and I cannot connect it to my PC. I followed all the instructions, but couldn't get a sound from it. Can somebody help me? I have Windows Vista


Make sure you've switched your sound input from the default (internal mic/input) to the MXL 990. This should be somewhere in the sound options.

If you're sure it's not getting power, you need to send it back.

Can't operate my MXL 990


If it is an MXL 990 Condenser that comes in the grey case with a shockmount and a black hard mount I can solve your problem. (If it is USB I know nothing about that unit).

This MXL 990 microphone MUST have 48v phantom power in order to operate. If you aren't familiar with the term phantom power read the first link:

Phantom power - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Phantom_power
MXL User Guide - http://www.mxlmics.com/support/guides.html

If yours is one of the older MXL 990's it should have an XLR connector on the bottom -
XLR Defined - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/XLR_connector

Your mixer (I am guessing its a Peavey, Tascam, Mackie) or something entry level like that may or may not have phantom power. I am guessing not. But if it does, it will have a switch that says 48v phantom power and most likely a green or red LED next to it to show you when its on. This mic will NOT work without phantom power.

Best suggestion: Verify that your mic is the MXL 990 Condenser, if it is it needs 48v phantom power. Check your mixer and see if it has 48v phantom power. The only computer soundcard that I know of that is used by a lot of folks is the M-Audio Delta 1010LT. It has XLR inputs but NO phantom power on it.

There's your answer.

MXL 990 doesn't work


Your other preamp does not have phantom power to supply power to the microphone. All condensor mics like this need phantom power. The Audio Buddy provides phantom power, which is why it was shipped with those condensor mics

Problems with my MXL 990 (radio)


Luis
I guarantee you the antennas are most likely the culprit. Your only solution is to have a tech check the unit, OR purchase an inline RF filter from Radio Shack. It is also possible that you have a capacitor or other component going bad, that is causing the unit to heterodyne and become a nice front end for a radio receiver.

You do have other microphones, and they do not do this. Averages says it is most likely the microphone has an issue or its design. I have one of these MXL 990s too, and my mic began motorboating a few months ago while I was trying to record with it. It may be a quality issue with these mics. They aren't complicated though, any component electronic tech should be able to check it out.
