BlueBird is a PHANTOM POWERED microphone. That is, your soundcard (or whatever the mic is plugged into) MUST supply 48 volts to power the mic. Some soundcards provide 'phantom power' of 5 volts. That's only enough voltage to power a 'computer mic' - you know, those little mics that are not much bigger than a pencil eraser. You need the full 48 volts to get the BlueBird to work. So - read the specs on your soundcard. If it doesn't provide 48 volts, then you need to buy a '48 volt phantom power supply' which will plug in between your mic and the soundcard.

Hello, i've just bought a sure sm58 mic so i thought i would get a good cable to go with it, i purchased a (Planet Waves 10 feet Custom Series 1/4 inch XLR Balanced Microphone Cable) but when connected...


Where do you connect the 1/4 inch connector? At the same device (karaoke)?
Also check and report if the 1/4 inch connector is "mono" or "stereo"

Waiting clarification, don't hesitate to post.

Is there a microphone built into the recorder and how do you get it to work


If your recorder has a microphone-in jack on it you can plug a mic into it directly and that will be recorded as the signal to whatever you're recording to. Your local Radio Shack will carry the plug converters you'll need if your microphone plug is either too large or too small for your mic-in jack.
Good luck! William

ATR3350 Microphone: Battery in. Plugged into laptop. Recorded video. ATR3350 Mic is ignored. Audio is still recorded from my Logitech Webcam software. How does this thing work?


You need to tell your computer which microphone / sound source to use.
In he absence of other instructions it is defaulting to the built in microphone.
Normally your sound-card software should detect a new device plugged in and ask you to confirm it. However if it is not doing so you may need to change the audio settings.
How to correct this will vary slightly depending on which operating system you are using.

Using a microphone with computer

To use any microphone with your computer you will need to enable it in control panel. The following instructions are for Windows XP but are broadly similar for Vista and Win7


Click START, CONTROL PANEL, SOUNDS & AUDIO DEVICES



Click VOICE


Now click the VOLUME button in the SOUND RECORDING BOX. Here you need to SELECT microphone as an input source for recording (as opposed to un-checking mute in the playback controls). If your webcam/ microphone is built in to the laptop there should also be a volume control called 'Internal MIC' - disable it by placing a check-mark in the mute box.


NOTE if microphone (or internal MIC) is not listed in the 2 sets of volume controls click OPTIONS, PROPERTIES on the tool-bar and place a check against microphone in the list entitled 'show the following volume controls' and then click OK.


That should be it but it is possible you may also need to turn off the microphone in the software for your web-cam.

The microphone jack of my Dell Inspiron 1100 seems to be malfunctioned. When I plug in a microphone, the other side does not hear anything. I tried several different microphones and none of them worked....


Check if the correct recoding device is selected on sound properties, and verify if mic is mute.Test mic using the sound recording program.
Try to uninstall and reinstall the sound driver.
Perform diagnostic on the audio using the drivers and utility disc. if mic is not working on the diagnostic tool then need to replace the sound card.

I get a quiet signal when using the mic.


Hi,

You should use the mic input of your computer.
If it's not there, use a microphone pre-amplifier.

Microphone input on Dell Inspiron B130 doesn't work


Your jack may have been damaged, or the apple mic may not be compatible. Purchase another pc compatible mic to check. Or you could try a multimedia headset with mic that plugs into your usb port. Take a look at RadioShack for headsets, I saw one in a store near me. and they should have them online.

Microphone Problem with Vista


Hi,
Do you Have Any settings Via Control Panel Or Similar, to check to see if the mic isn,t Muted ?
I,m not too up on Vista but have experience With 95/98/2000 And XP.
I,d also assume that there is Troubleshooting facility with Vista.
Also Is the microphone plugged into the correct Jack/Socket ?

Line Recording with H5500


i think that audio jack is for headphone-microphone combined (those cable plugs have a three black lines , top for left audio, center for right audio, last line for microphone) so you can use a headphones with mic directly with this 5500. the mic is i said before is the last line. what you need is a monophone plug. (mono mic) i dont think stereo mic will work.
