Re: Microphone makes a popping sound

Dear friend,
Do you remember if it did that before you have dropped it?
As far as I remember, all mics I have worked with would do the same thing: an unmistakeably loud burst when you turn it on and monitors/PA are outputting.
My suggestion is that you kill the audio output (through channel mixer muting), turn the mic on and then bring the audio back on.
That should avoid unpleasant surprises.

Re: Microphone makes a popping sound

Your headphones and/or mic should be undamaged, what is probably causing the problem... or what might turn out is not a problem besides the noise, if you installed realtek or any onboard or cheaper sound cards drivers over a generic windows one it will do that as the official driver will by default make a sudden switch whereby generic ones will gradually start the mic. Uninstall the official drivers if you have a newer OS that has generics they work the same and the noise will not occur.

How to play computer sounds through microphone

<p>There may, of course, sounds from a microphone, because there is a speaker, but you can use sounds from a microphone or something speakers connected to the microphone system is played. Computer games, but might sound a bit complicated because they usually lead to loud sounds into the microphone to a number set. <br /> <p><br /> <p>1. Find the computer that you want to play sound. Go to Control Panel and click on "Hardware and Sound." Under "Sound" in "Changing the system sounds." You can access various Windows sounds by selecting them and clicking "Test". <br /> <p><br /> <p>2. External speakers to the sound card or audio output on a laptop. With active speakers is recommended, the stronger the better. Set the microphone in front of the speaker. <br /> <p><br /> <p>3. Connect the microphone and play the sound from computer speakers. That should pass the microphone for recording or performing live. <br />

It dont sound like a cd or studio how can i set dis up

There are many factors that can affect how your recorded performance will sound, ranging from the gear (microphone, mixer, interface), the software your using, the room your recording in and the microphone and other recording techniques.

Keep in mind that this is a Consumer Microphone, not a Professional Microphone, so your recording can only sound as good as the mic can record, however there are many ways you can improve the sound you record with the mic.

Start with the recording environment. Hang quilts or other absorbent material on the walls to absorb reflections.

Use EQ and Compression in your software (google this for more info on using these tools)

Most of all, ensure you are using a Pop-Filter to eliminate any plosions (the loud popping noise heard on "B"s and "P"s etc). You can make one out of a coathanger and stocking that is just as effective as most commercial ones if you dont want to fork out the cash.

Use google as a tool to gain as much info as you can on Audio Engineering, and you shoud be able to improve the quality of your recordings quite drematically.

I have a headset microphone and i wired in a box a on off footswitch but every time i turn it on or off it makes a loud pop thru the pa system

Common. The sound board should have a mute button. Activate when turning it on. You may have a stand-by position, you can turn to this position, and turn sound back on. From the stand-by to on, it should be gone.
