Adobe Audition 3 Not Sensing Mic

My band recently bought a Behringer 1204fx, along with a MXL 990 mic that does require phantom power and I have phantom turned on. My mixer is hooked up to my computer with a behringer u-control UCA200 USB device. When I go to record, adobe doesn't sense my mic.
Any solutions? Please include as much info as possible.
Thanks.

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.

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.

No sound from mxl 990 condenser mic


From the Micropower PS400 product description it states:

"routes the microphone signal to a mixer or a microphone preamplifier."

• these is just a phantom power supply.


One reason your former setup is OK , is that

tascam m-50 is a mixer preamplifier.

• phantom power supply is just a part of the mic preamp of the mixer

to power up your mxl 990 condenser mic


• What you may need is something like these:

I've tried several mics: mxl 990, Sure sm58/57, an AKG mic, and I get very low input signal or no signal at all from the mxl 990. The problem is the same regardless of phantom power. Cranking the input...


1. maybe the impedance of you mic did not match to your sound card..
2. sound card did not support you dynamic mic...try to use FET or condenser mic..

I have a MXL 990 studio mic which I recorded one no longerworks


Are you using the original cable for the mike? In order to use phantom power the XLR connectors have to be wired in balanced configuration. Pins 1,2 and 3 must be wired separately. If you use a cable with 1and 3 connected you could damage the phantom power supply and in some cases the microphone.

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

Get sound through a Behringer 1204FX mixer & FCA202 interface


Block diagram available here:
http://www.behringerdownload.de/XENYX_GRP2/1204FX_VIEW_Rev_A.pdf

Where are the trim controls set?
Those mics use both phantom and battery power; are the mic switches set to phantom?
Try using the CD/Tape outputs to the FCA202
