Re: connecting samson co2

The Samson CO2 is a condenser (also called capacitor) mic, and thus requires phantom power to operate. In order to apply phantom power, you must have a board capable of handling an XLR connection, and supply phantom power. Usually there is a switch located near the XLR-input jack on your board - if you post your sound board type, more help can be given.

Hey recently bought samson Q7 mic nd wanted to know wat do i need to connect to my computer

A sound card like an MBox or something like that will do it. Or a small desk with a USB out or if your computer has 3.5 in then any small mixer will work with some adapters.

I had to buy a new power adapter for my stage 5h wireless system. When I plug it in, the power LED flashes. Is that what it is suppose to do? I can't get it to work at with the new adapter.

No it shouldn't flash. Did you buy the manufacturers own power adapter or did you just buy a universal one?
If you bought a universal it could be that you have the wrong polarity (+ve and -ve the wrong way round)

Many Problems with Samson G-Track or not?

Hi.  I dunno if yur using pc or mac but with a mac yu need to adjust the mic settings on the comp. For the static its probably your set up or as i said in another guys problem, the usb cable given with it is **** so try using another one from a printer or wtv to see if that makes a difference for you. Also if you are recording just through the mic i find that it seems to only work well when the input is on line and not inst/mic. Hope this can be of some help. Its a great piece of kit once you get it working well.. Goodluck

The CO2 is a condenser mic (also called capacitor mic), and as such, requires phantom power to operate. Ensure that your system is providing phantom power to the microphone, usually accomplished by flipping a switch near your mic input on your sound board.

Samson CO2 pencil microphone

You do understand the microphone requires phantom power ... You're connecting a microphone to a ten watt guitar amp ... what's that about.

Samson G-track - Vista requiring to install USB Audio Codec

If the LED doesn't light when you plug it in, and it doesn't show up in Device Manager ("USB Composite Device" or "USB Audio Device"), then the mic must be defective. Contact Samson for a replacement.
