Switch on MXL 2003

Forgive my ignorance but I am just getting started in VO work and bought he MXL 2003. There is a switch that apparently is a ba cut off and a -10db setting.

Since it didn't come with a manual, what is this switch for and when would I use it?

Thank You

- bass cuttoff does not allow bass frequencies to pass. This is useful to block unnecessary sounds from being recorded, since there is not much intelligible human voice content in the bass range. Cutting off the bass will minimize the sound of thuds, bumps, breath pops, etc.

- -10dB lowers the signal output of the mic by 10 decibels. This is useful when recording very loud instruments that would otherwise clip some gain stages

Mxl condenser microphone cuts off intermittently


Failing more obvious things like a dodgy cable, condenser mics need phantom power 48v. Perhaps the phantom is cutting out?

Does an MXL 990 microphone only work with an inbox?


By "inbox" do you mean a transformer that powers it?
Condenser mics need 48 volts (phantom power) to run, so you normally switch the phantom power button on for the channel you have the condensor mic. plugged into.

I just took my MXL 3000 out of the box and it does not work while pluged into m mic cord


This microphone requires 48v Phantom power. So if you are trying to connect it to your computer, you will need to use a USB interface that will provide phantom power. If you are connecting it via a mixer, make sure Phantom power is switched on if it is available. As the MXL 3000 is only available new from Guitar Center or Musicians Friend, they can also provide you with what else you need.

Make sure the Phantom Power on the Audio buddy is on. If that fails, get in touch with MXL and they will troubleshoot it with you.

I bought a MXL 990 USB, and I cannot connect it to my PC. I followed all the instructions, but couldn't get a sound from it. Can somebody help me? I have Windows Vista


Make sure you've switched your sound input from the default (internal mic/input) to the MXL 990. This should be somewhere in the sound options.

If you're sure it's not getting power, you need to send it back.

Can't operate my MXL 990


If it is an MXL 990 Condenser that comes in the grey case with a shockmount and a black hard mount I can solve your problem. (If it is USB I know nothing about that unit).

This MXL 990 microphone MUST have 48v phantom power in order to operate. If you aren't familiar with the term phantom power read the first link:

Phantom power - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Phantom_power
MXL User Guide - http://www.mxlmics.com/support/guides.html

If yours is one of the older MXL 990's it should have an XLR connector on the bottom -
XLR Defined - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/XLR_connector

Your mixer (I am guessing its a Peavey, Tascam, Mackie) or something entry level like that may or may not have phantom power. I am guessing not. But if it does, it will have a switch that says 48v phantom power and most likely a green or red LED next to it to show you when its on. This mic will NOT work without phantom power.

Best suggestion: Verify that your mic is the MXL 990 Condenser, if it is it needs 48v phantom power. Check your mixer and see if it has 48v phantom power. The only computer soundcard that I know of that is used by a lot of folks is the M-Audio Delta 1010LT. It has XLR inputs but NO phantom power on it.

There's your answer.

Pls help


The MXL 990s requires 48 volts to operate. If your mixer does not have a phantom power option, you will need to purchase a microphone pre-amplifier with phantom power to interface the microphone to your mixer.
