Re: how to use blue usb mic

It depends on your operating system, but in XP, open Cubase. Go to the audio input settings, and be sure to select "USB Audio Codec" or "USB Audio Microphone" as the input device.

In Vista, right click on the speaker icon in the taskbar (usually lower right hand corner of the screen) and select "Recording Devices". Make sure to select the "USB Audio" device, then try Cubase again.

Why does it sound so bad?

It's probably the mic, or you have some mental condition. I'm going with the mic, try returning it and getting a new one and if there's no difference, then try the software you use on whatever it is you're recording it with.

How do i get levels from my g track mic im using cubase le 5 i only get one side level how do i fix this issue?

The mic is only on the Left channel, and instrument input is on the Right channel. So in Cubase you need to select only the Left channel in your first track, and then only the Right channel in your second track, and then you can record Vocals and Instrument at the same time on 2 different tracks.

Cannot record both mic and electric guitar in daw

Disagree with previous post. The GTrack is designed to record vocals and a mono insrtument at the same time. That's its main selling point. It should also allow monitoring of both the vocals and guitar alongside the playback from the computer. In your computer's Control Panel, go to sound preferences, select the usb microphone and click on advanced tab. It is likely yours is set up to record 1 channel at CD quality - this is how many ship for some reason. Set it to 2 Channels CD quality.
In Sonar, set your track input as USB Left for the vocals, and USB Right for your guitar.

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

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?

M-udio usb microphone

You should be able to plug your headphones into your computer and get sound that way, assuming your USB mic is plugged in. If the mic is a USB - direct mic (that is, if it is a microphone with a USB cable directly attached), you will only be able to use it with your PC or laptop. If the device is a mic pre-amp (with an XLR or 1/4" connector that your mic PLUGS INTO), then you should be able to use your microphone with any device that will accept that connection type.

Vocal problem

hi there..if there is video and background audio coming out from the TV, and no voice recognition from the mic- then mic is the problem. I believed the problem is the "voice coil". This is a part that can be replaced- you can contact me and we can repair that.

two ways to check
remove the mic ball
the part which the mic ball is is covering is the voice coil.
try holding both terminals (black and white wire)- if there is feedback sound- it is open and need to be replaced
try using your tester- test the impedance- there should be 500- 600 ohms reading

( or customerservice
