Well is the mic / mics close to the machine, if it is then it is picking up its own radio waves which will make a loud unwanted sound...

I have an rode nt1-a microphone, roland quad capture interface, but when im gonna record or put the input level i hear wind, i turn down the input volume all the way down, i still see the input signal


The Rode NT1A mic is a condenser mic and therefore it REQUIRES that "phantom" power be supplied by the mixer or amplifier. You will get only electronic "noise" if the mic is not receiving this power. Look up Phantom power to understand it. Essentially DC power is sent up the mic cable between the signal lines and the shield of the cable and is used by the electronics in the mic to amplify the signal from the condenser element.

I have a Behringer Mic C-1U and its not powering up!


How to Operate a Behringer C-1U

The Behringer C-1U is a USB condenser mic for recording individual instruments. A condenser microphone is a mic that uses vibrations produced by sound to change the distance of internal plates that produce signal. Condenser mics typically require an extra change, known as phantom power, to operate. Since the C-1U is USB powered, phantom power is not needed. The Behringer C-1U has a frequency response that favors sounds around the 10KHz range. This heightens the clarity of recorded signals due to the microphone's treble boost.

Things You'll Need:

* Computer with USB 2.0 port
* USB cable
* Recording software

Instructions

Turn on the computer. When the operating system loads, connect the microphone.

Install any necessary drivers for the C-1U. This will happen automatically when the device is connected.

Select the Behringer C-1U as an input source in any desired audio software. In Windows, click the "Volume" icon in the task bar to open the mixer. Select the C-1U as the primary input. On Macs, use the "Audio/MIDI Setup" in the "System Preferences" menu to select the C-1U as the primary input


Note: make sure you activate the phantom power on the mic. That's the only way to power up the microphone.

Have a nice day.

Low volume from passive mics !! I'm using stage mics (Shure SM-58s) and the signal is barely showing on the meter. I've tried turning up the input volume...I cranked it up so high that I'm getting...


Hi, first of all,you need to troubleshoot your connecting cables, and also check the Mic cable that your using for the Mic (shure SM-58s).

I would advice that if your using the Mic for studio recording,i think to get a good job done, if you can afford it,you go for a condenser and a good soundcard,i think that will do,and also get good cables for connections.

Hope it helped..

Thanks for using fixya....

My mic keeps getting this popping noise wen i record, i have a pop filter an it's not a wind noise it's a crackling sound


Is it a condenser mic? Either your mic is bad or you need to add a compresser to your signal path...

I have connected the samson mic to my computer. input not detecte


A condenser mic. requires "phantom power" usually supplied by a mixing desk. Without this, there will be no output signal from the mic.

Sound quality not good at all


open up the sound icon on control panel...select recording......select samson mic....make sure set to default.....go into properties ...and boost main volume slider....most mics after install are set quite low and you have to go in and adjust the vol input level

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

No sound through M-Audio preamp and condenser mic


Hi micoach
The condenser mic you are using requires phantom power for it to operate. Pay to check that that is turned on m-audio. Just to be sure.you say you can get sound off the m-audio headphone socket. Just need to check that. You will need to check that you have selected the device for recording from the preferences--audio I/O options menu within audacity. Perhaps check these things and get back to me here if you still have problems.I can go into more detail with you.

Mic not working


Check that your mic is not dissabled in the volume properties, but also check that your instant messenger is set to recognise sound and audio. The best thing to do is to try recording a short video in windows movie maker 2 to check the cam is working ok
