Re: Desktop Stand

Took the little piece out of the part that screws onto a standard mic stand including boom: it's a little piece of rubber about the size of a penny that comes out and thus allows it to be used with mic stands

Re: Desktop Stand

Use a penny to unscrew the ***** that's inside the adapter. Now you will be able to fit the aluminum tube into the adapter =)

Re: Desktop Stand

Basically the swivel peice doesn't fit on the included stand unless you 'back-out' the little adapter that's screwed into it already. It comes with this adapter pre-installed, which makes it fit smaller stands. If you look in the top you can see a notch on the shiny silver adapter hidden inside.. just unscrew it.

Re: Desktop Stand

Mine wouldn't fully screw down into the base, but I didn't want to force it and it seems stable enough, so I'm not worrying about it...

I can't find where my microphone goes

Is your computer a laptop or a desktop? How old is it? Which make/model of computer do you have?

For an older desktop, the microphone input will be on the back of the computer. There are usually three 3.5 mm jacks for audio connections. The pink connector is for the microphone. The black connector is for Line In and the green is line out (speakers). Often they are towards the far side of the motherboard connections from any PS2 (keyboard and mouse) ports. Otherwise, they will line up with one of the card slots.

Newer desktop computers often have additional audio ports for surround sound. However, the pink jack for the microphone is standard. If the computer has front audio ports, you may find that the same color labels the jacks. Otherwise look closely at the icons next to the ports. These will be in addition to the back audio ports.

Laptops can have the audio ports on the front, back or side depending on the model. There will be a small icon with a stand microphone indicated for the microphone port.

If you have one of the newer USB microphones, plug it into an available USB port.

If the computer has no working audio ports, either get a USB microphone or add a sound card.

I hope this helps. If you add a comment with your computer's brand and model number, I'll try to provide the exact audio port details. (There are some computer motherboards that do not have on-board audio and you will need a sound card.)

Telex ht200 is fatter microphone and I am looking for a microphone clip to mount it on a microphone stand. Universal clips are too skinny - they will not fit around the mic. Does anyone know where I cn get...

Here you go. I would use something like this. This has a 1.75" (44mm) diameter.
You can also go here scroll down to page 5 and you can use this - $15.00 Telex ELM-22S Black Lapel Mic, Shure TA4F w/ Mic Clip -- That clip is the same diameter as your mic and is made by Telex.

The plastic comnponent that screws into the base of the mic and attaches to a mic stand broke. Where do I find a replacement.

I haven't seen it on the market as a spare part. I'd email Samson directly, or simply get one of the spider shock resistant mounts out there.

Microphone stand

this confused me too! if you havn't figured it out already there is an adaptor screwed into the mic clip to work with standard mic stand mounts. in order for it to fit on the desk stand that comes with it, you have to to first unscrew the adaptor sitting inside the barrel of the mic clip. then it will be the right size to screw onto the stand.

I have problem with my samson g track mic. When I record my vocals I can hear backround noise on my vocals. and I dunno how to get of that 100% I need clear voice not noise on my vocals :((

The Samson G Track microphone is very sensitive. If you have it on the heavy metal base on your computer desk it will pick up the vibrations of computer fans. It's vital to get the microphone off the desk using a mike stand with a boom or invest in the G Track spider holder if you want to use the desktop stand.

You can do a test just by holding the microphone with your hand. You should get very little noise apart from the fan noise with will be very faint. That noise is much easier to remove than the vibration noise as removing the vibration noise affects how your voice sounds.

Hope this helps.
