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

Brian Wolf

- 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.

2003 ford explorer sport trac blower motor and switch not getting any power, it was working fine a while ago and i had to start flipping the switch to head then off then back to head, what is wrong?

The selector switch on the dash controls the blower motor relay, then the fan switch controls the speed. The fan switch gets power from a 40amp fuse and the control panel gets power from two other fuses.
If you are working the control switch to get the fan to work, the control switch may be failing.

Not getting spark when starting stihl ts 400cut off saw plug is wet. HI GRYDERT your problem could be your on, off switch. This might sound funny, but switch the on off switch real fast several times, then see if you havee fire. If not check your spark plug. If you have a n
ew one try it. If that don't work check the connection at the plug to be sure it is makiong contact with the plug. If all this does't work you will have to go inside to the coil. They don't usually go ba d but it could. But first check to be sure it isn't grounded at the small wire from the switch. Good Luck.

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.

Their website is apparently now in someone else's control as they are apparently out of business. You might want to go to htpp:// and get the free Belarc Advisor which will tell what components are on the motherboard, from which you can search Google for drivers.

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.
