Mic won't power up

I've tried plugging in my mic to several USB ports on my laptop, and it won't power up. Is there anything I could try or is it a fault with the mic? All ports work fine with other devices.

How do you know it's not powering up? Does the LED light? Does it show up in Device Manager? If not, it's probably defective. Contact Samson and they'll send you a replacement.

Why is it suddenly way too quiet?


Try a different mic to see if problem follows. If yes then it is a setting. If not then the mic is bad and needs to be sent to mfg or get a new one.

I just bought the GXL2200 CAD microphone without the cabels,(thought they would've came with), what kind of cable do i need?


As with most microphones, these mics use XLR cables. You can get them online or in a music store in many different lengths. What you need is XLR male to XLR female, though most of the consumer-level stores will probably just call them "mic cables." Note that the thing you're plugging into will need to have an XLR input, and will need to provide phantom power in order for that mic to work.

Mic twont turn on


There is no way to directly connect this mic via USB. It requires a phantom power source, through an XLR mic cable.

Hello There, I just bought the Rode NT1-A, and I am trying to record in protools, but i'm not getting any levels whatsoever. I'm plugged in to an MBOX, in the XLR, I have Phantom Power turned on,...


It sounds like you have done everything right. It would be a good idea to check both the mic and Protools system separately. If you can, verify that the mic works using another device such as a mixer. Also try getting a level into Protools using another mic, preferably a dynamic which doesn't require phantom power. If you are trying to use an original MBOX under Windows 7 or the latest version of OSX then it may not work at all.

My mic won't pick anything up. it's plugged in, the recording software is set to line in. how do i adjust the mic settings?


If you are using a condenser microphone, it's need phantom power (48v) to activate the mic. Hope this helps

SAMSON CO1U recordings sound like they're underwater on my MAC


The behavior you describe suggests that the mic is not getting power. Since it is a condenser mic, it requires what is usually called "phantom power". This should be provided thru the USB port. Check to be sure that the USB port is supplying that power. Check with another port for example. If that fails, you may have a defective mic.

Keep us posted.

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
