You will need to run the mic through a mixer that has phantom power. Without the phantom power supply, the microphones active circuitry will not be able to work.. Good luck, any problems getting your rig up just ask. A "FixYa" rating for assistance would be great, thanks

Try increasing the latency. Depending on your computer, it may not be able to handle low latency levels. Latency is a measure of the delay between the time you make a sound and the time the computer records that sound. With the Mbox mini, the unit for latency is the number of samples the driver collects before sending them to an application as input. Lower latency can make recording easier and more accurate, but not all computer systems can operate at the lowest latencies without introducing noise. Open the Mbox mini dialog and select the latency tab. experiment with higher latency levels and see if it goes away. somervta_0.jpgThis is what the dialogue might look like. another solution would be to try a different DAW. I had the same problem with my Fast Track Pro in ProToolsand it worked fin on Reaper, Garageband and Logic.

Make sure your recording onto a Mono track in your software, don't choose stereo when creating the track.

MXL 990 doesn't work


Your other preamp does not have phantom power to supply power to the microphone. All condensor mics like this need phantom power. The Audio Buddy provides phantom power, which is why it was shipped with those condensor mics

I have a m-audio buddy using a mlx 990. I have this hooked to 200 ohm peavy amp. The problem is I can barely touch the gain on the pre-amp or the amp without getting extreme feedback.


It appears that the condenser microphones that are omni directional are too sensitive to process thru an amplifier. I used an mlx 991 directional condenser microphone and though still very sensitive, I was able to avoid the feedback. According to the company condenser microphones are used more for recording and not so much for live stage.
