Re: Im using a mic, but its looking for a guitar, how do...

It shows a guitar for higher input level or you can set it to a lower level(more sensitive) - it will then show a microphone

Bass Guitar Won't Register

The mics I have seen don't have a filter... but a lot of mixers do have a 100Hz mic input filter. Check the other equipment that you are using also.

Im not sure if its a mic problem or an interface(m-audio fast track) or even if its the program im using (adobe audition 1.5) but when i record using the sterling ST51 it sounds like im about two miles...

First, Make sure you are speaking into the front of the microphone. there should be a logo or brand name at the front to show you. because of the cardioid pattern, sounds behind the mic are not picked up; good if the sound you want to isolate is at the front, not so good if it's at the back. Second, make sure the gain on the fast track is turned up. And third, try using a different program. It's unlikely to be the problem, but if it is, it's an easy fix.

I buy a microphone, and I don't now where I have to plug it in, I's called i Carly Microphone, do I need something extra to use it, im trying to plug it in an guitar amplifier...

does it have a cable for it? it should. if it does then just plug it into the amp input jack. there is probably an on/off switch on the mic. i dont know if this is a fixed mic cable or if it is XLR type input on the mic. If there is a place for a cable to plug into the mic at the base of the handle, see if there are 3 pins in the jack of the mic. if so it is XLR, and the amp is 1/4inch so you would need a cable with XLR to 1/4"male. I would go with no shorter than 12 feet, but try to go with 20 to have enough room to move around. Hope that helps.

Samson G-Track mic does not work with garageband effects

Look man just use the input as a way for your pre-amp's to plug in.... you don't want any of those built in guitar effects anyways... You just need a good multi pedal.. There are many good recording Pre-amps out there that work great and are fully adjustable for easy recording.. You can do what you want but, I think you will like the sound of pre-amp effects pedals in your computer set up....

Thats just a tip

Cannot record

Im having the same probz, got a Hp Pavilion Vista using mobile pre amp usb when i record using a condenser mic XLR nothing is picked up from the channels in Cubase or Nuendo. Im trying to record vocals but the Mic is not picked up and i cannot hear myself in the headphones and it wont transfere to cubase.

It has worked before when i had a desktop, but this only worked with a separate m-audio sound card inside the desktop and i plug in the output jax leads from the desktop (soundcard) to the m-audio usb pre amp

Is this why it is not working for the laptop do i need a Jax connection and where is this audacity

No recording?

The static after several seconds seems like this is a problem with certain versions of OS X. You might be able to fix it by downgrading or upgrading. Apple Forums say that it's fixed in 10.5.6.

You can double check that this is the problem by trying it on a Windows computer.

ok, heres what try contacting the support line on your samson mic and ask the setup if you are going to connect an acoustic guitar, there might be some info for it. actually there is here check this out

Acoustic Guitar
There are a variety of ways that the G Track can be used to mic an acoustic guitar. The
microphone placement will depend on the type of instrument and what kind of sound
you’re looking to capture, for example the tonal quality you want to focus on, and how
much finger slide or pick noise you may or may not want. When miking a standard
steel string acoustic, a good place to start is with the microphone positioned pointing
towards the end of the fingerboard at a distance of about 6 inches to 2 feet away from
the instrument. You can experiment by moving the microphone slightly in the direction
of the sound hole, which will produce more low frequencies, or move it in the direction
of the fingerboard to capture more high-end or to remove any unwanted boominess.
For nylon string acoustic, try positioning the microphone above the bridge to emphasize
more of the attack from the sound of the finger picking, or for less, move the mic closer
to the sound hole. If you have a pair of G Tracks, try one positioned at the fingerboard
and the second over the sound hole.

Can not record vocal and guitar at the same time

The monitoring switch should not affect the recording at all. Maybe you have a defective mic?

Does it record from the line input if you set it to Line In mode?
