Lets verify the simple stuff first. Make sure that the unit is set to use the "external" mic rather than the internal. If it is set that way, then there may be an internal problem. I will look up the service manual and get you more specifics should they be required. Please update this with the status.

Thanks,
Dan

No sound from mxl 990 condenser mic


From the Micropower PS400 product description it states:

"routes the microphone signal to a mixer or a microphone preamplifier."

• these is just a phantom power supply.


One reason your former setup is OK , is that

tascam m-50 is a mixer preamplifier.

• phantom power supply is just a part of the mic preamp of the mixer

to power up your mxl 990 condenser mic


• What you may need is something like these:

What is the best way to run the mic on desktop


Your condensor mic requires special electrical handling usually reserved for proffesional audio equipment, not a PC. You will need two pieces of equipment, a short XLR cable and an adapter cable.
1) Behringer PS400 Ultra-Compact Phantom Power Supply.
This will supply the mic with necessary Phantom Power.
2) Rapco Horizon ISOBLOX Transformer Isolation 1:1 BLOX Device
This will isolate the Phantom Power from your computer, allowing it to work as necessary.
The adaptor connector cable you need will be a female XLR (with pins 1 and 3 shorted, pin 2 hot), through a cable connect to a 1/8" mini plug. They connect in that order with a short XLR cable between 1) and 2). .

Low volume from Fishman Loudbox Mini mic input, using brand new XLR cable and dynamic mic. Mic works just fine on instrument input using a Hi-Z cable so problem is not mik


I have seen defective XLR cables so check it with an ohmmeter. It is possible the mic input preamp has been damaged. If that is the case, the unit will have to be repaired.

Brand new ag30 when I plug my mic sm58 into it all I get is static no sound as in singing comes through it I'm using a XLR to quarter brand new lead.. Have tried everything when I hit the tip of mic sound...


You should be using XLR to XLR cable, NOT a 1/4 inch cable. There is a problem of the 1/4 inch being the unbalanced version and is not compatible with this unit's input.

Use the XLR to XLR mic cable and it will work fine.

The cable you have would work for one of those cheap Karaoke machines...

How to make my co3 mic work


You will need a pre amp that supplies whats called phantom power which is power that feeds the mic .. This will come from either mixers [small cheap ones..but check it has XLR mic input with phantom power] or from a stand alone pre amp or audio interfaces with built in inputs for mics with phantom power.. Also you will need an XLR mic lead..Buy a good one with neutrik plugs or similar..

My akg perception 200 is not responding


Have you tried using a another XLR cable..,or are the other mics phantom powered condensers..ie try to locate if its a mic problem or the cable..2 other points are 1 - XLR leads for phantom mics need to be XLR to XLR male to Female plugs[ends] 2- is that often an XLR to XLR cable will be not soldered or wired right,so that the power [phantom power is not getting to the mic] so ensure you have a proper cable for that job...Sorry i can't be more specific but from reading your problem all these issues come to mind..If you have ruled all these things out,then it could be the capsule or loose joint or component in the mic which means contact AKG,pro audio services or find a DIY mic person to help..G luck!!

Does the SE Mini use a standard cable or is there a special cable needed for use in an amp or computer?


you'll need an xlr (male) to xlr (female) to use the microphone with 48v phantom power (from a preamp). phantom power dosnt work with an xlr to jack, only both xlr.
