Hello sir/maam, most (almost all) mic are mono, and the microphone mixer circuit splits the signal to two channel left and right, and fed to two amplifiers, then to two speakers. IF by any chance only mono, we need to trace the path where the mic signal is fed, and where the signal dissappeared, check also your balance control.

If your mic mixer circuit is designed for one channel, contact your local tech to check out or make connection to both channel.

Mic's are generally mono.... This one is mono.

If you can't switch your amp to mono (same signal on both channels), then you need a mixer. If you have a mixer, use the mic input there or "crystal" or "Pre-amp" input.

Hi i have connected the Samson G-track with my macbook. also i using Nicecast & Traktor for radio broadcasting. when i talk from Samson G Track my voice comes only from left speaker. I try the...


This is because the G Track's Mic signal is on the Left channel and the Instrument signal is on the Right channel. You are making a stereo recording when you should be making 2 mono recordings. Does Nicecast have an option to set the track to mono Left channel? Traktor should, but I haven't used it so I can't tell you where the option is. There's probably a Track Input drop-down or something like that.

Have an Aiptek HD 12 1080p with Azden wireless mic system. no sound with wireless mic, but sound works on camcorder without the wireless.


you need to use a mono-to-stereo cable, the azden is a mono output mic by the aiptek is a stereo input and you are shorting out the phantom power with a mono plug in a stereo jack.

Hi... I cannot seem to capture my audio in stereo. The playback from my mic comes from one side (mono) only. How do I set it to play through both speakers? I have 2 input mics...1 one camera and my...


Your microphone has a stereo miniplug, with 3 contacts, that look exactly like headphone minijacks. You have not stated where you are trying to plug this microphone, but most computers /sound cards will accept only mono minijacks, with 2 contacts. Should you have left/ right inputs for microphones, buy a splitter adapter that will turn the stereo jack of the microphone into two mono jacks.

Headset Microphone doesn't work


Plugged in? Is it a stereo plug? does your computer allow speaker and mic on the same wire? Does the outlet say Mic or Headset of Both? Had it worked in the past.

Some computers have a place for a mic - some for headset - some might have both. On a desktop, I would expect to find separate connections. Laptop, Id have to look.

A 'stereo' plug will have a tip, ring and barrel connection.

A 'mono' plug will have a tip and barrel connection only.

A stereo plug would allow a mic and head phone connection ujsing a 'common' for the return.

A mono plug would allow either a mic or a headset, not both.

If you could peer into the jack inside your computer, you could tell if it privides for three wire (stereo) or two wire (mono) operation.

I hope this helps ... If I missed your question, please reask.

My front panel headphone& mic connecting pcb have only 7 slots and the cable is named as 1)LINE OUT FR,2)LINE OUT RR,3)LINE OUT FL,4)LINE OUT RL,5)MIC IN(R),6)GROUND,7)MIC POWER(L) how can it connect...


FR stands for Front Right, FL for Front Left, RR for Rear Right and RL for rear left. These are speakers connections. You need a convertr cable to connect your headphones with your PC. After getting cable, connect it with FR and FL or RR and RL pair. Your headphone will be working. Similarly get the cabl for Mono to Stereo Mic and you can connect your mic too.

AKG Perception Microphone ony recording in mono but want stereo.


I have similar problems with inputing stereo sound. How do you know your mic port on the PC is set for stereo? What kind of a cable are you using? If it is an XLR, the connection is pure mono. Maybe you need a TRS cable, which looks like a 1/4 inch jack but is really stereo. Maybe you need a stereo mini. Usually a cable mismatch is the problem. Is your phantom power supply passing stereo? All the ones I have seen are mono. You may need two. Is your sound capture set for stereo? Are the input level controls set correctly for equal volume on left or right channel? I would try the mic with a regular amplifier to insure both channels are working. Then trace the signal from mic to power supply and power supply to computer.

Samson co1u recording issue


you first 3 people are idiots... maybe if you had worked with the hardware you would know how the mic works because its obvious you don't. The 4th person is correct because this is exactly how i use the mic and it captures sound in stereo format beautiful when set up rite. Using it in mono, whether use keep on one channel or two drastically reduces the crisp sound that this mic can record.

Playback only on left speaker


The quick, easy solution is to change your microphone to mono recording. In the attached YouTube clip, I'll show you how to do that.

The short and simple is to go to your Mac HD -> Applications -> Utilities -> Audio MIDI Setup. Select your C01U USB device, and set it to 1ch 16bit. This will set the microphone to record in mono, equally over both speakers.

Its way too quite. Ok I've had this problem since day 1 and have pretty much given up on any hope for this mic, I bought this mic so i could have better quality audio when I record my gaming videos and yet every time I try to record or use it on my chat programs the **** thing is so quite that to get any sound to be picked up it has to pretty much be in my mouth. Now to give an idea of the situation I'm using a PC first off and its a desktop not a laptop like a lot of the other problems I've seen here about this mic and second I don't have a bunch of audio equipment or any other kind of recording studio gear just me, my computer and the mic. I've tried plugging it into my guitar amp but it pretty much did nothing at all so ya if there is a free software I can download to increase the volume of the mic that'd be great but I will also be using this while in chat programs such as Skype, Ventrilo or Mumble so of course it has to produce the same level of volume in all of these things. At the moment I am forced to use the mic from my Turtle Beach x11 Earforce headset which is not the best quality but it's not bad and picks up everything I say from about 10ft away. So if anyone can give me an answer that helps with this that isn't blatantly obvious like going into the recording devices section of my computer and changing things there because I've done that already (enhancements available DC offset cancellation/ Advanced set to 3 channel, 16 bit, 192000 Hz).
