Question about Digidesign Mbox 2 Barebone

Right input not working

The other day my mbox took a nasty spill and now the right input channel is not working. The button to switch from DI and Mic is no longer connected and is stuck on Mic, which isn't getting any sound through it either way. Any thoughts on what to do?

Thanks

Hello There, I just bought the Rode NT1-A, and I am trying to record in protools, but i'm not getting any levels whatsoever. I'm plugged in to an MBOX, in the XLR, I have Phantom Power turned on,...


It sounds like you have done everything right. It would be a good idea to check both the mic and Protools system separately. If you can, verify that the mic works using another device such as a mixer. Also try getting a level into Protools using another mic, preferably a dynamic which doesn't require phantom power. If you are trying to use an original MBOX under Windows 7 or the latest version of OSX then it may not work at all.

I am using pro tools 8 LE. I have a blue bluebird condenser microphone. the cable going into the mic is a male 3 pronged end. and the end going into my avid mbox mini is a normal ending (the ones that look...


The mbox mini is usb powered, wont work without power so your mac or pc must be powered on and connected. The blue led will be on when powered. Assuming you have the the appropriate cables, you want to make sure the condenser is plugged into the Mic/Line input. (Input 1 on the back of the mbox mini). All condenser mics require phantom power, so engage the +48V switch. Also make sure the DI (direct input) switch is not engaged. The input gain control is located on the front of the mbox... There needs to be speakers connected to the 1/4 output jacks on the back of the mbox or headphones on the front for sound output. Use the large knob for monitor volume control.
In protools: Create a Stereo Master fader track
Create a mono audio track
Set the input of the mono audio track to Mic/Line 1 Arm the track for record (click & make sure the R is red)
You should getting levels and sound output from your condenser.

Mono


Hello sir/maam, most (almost all) mic are mono, and the microphone mixer circuit splits the signal to two channel left and right, and fed to two amplifiers, then to two speakers. IF by any chance only mono, we need to trace the path where the mic signal is fed, and where the signal dissappeared, check also your balance control.

If your mic mixer circuit is designed for one channel, contact your local tech to check out or make connection to both channel.

Rode NT2 got Phantom!


Well... Rode NT2's are condenser mic's that require phantom power to work. So the phantom switch should be on. When you turn phantom power on you usually hear a bump sound (through the amplifier). In this case, nothing is broken.
Your picture is of a Rode Videomic (not an NT2) which is a stereo mic for video cameras. If you had some kind of stereo mini to (single) XLR adaptor, and put phantom power through it, the mic would probably be damaged. But maybe not... just try again without phantom power to see. a stereo mic won't work very well with the Mbox Mini because it only has one mic preamp.

AKG Perception Microphone ony recording in mono but want stereo.


I have similar problems with inputing stereo sound. How do you know your mic port on the PC is set for stereo? What kind of a cable are you using? If it is an XLR, the connection is pure mono. Maybe you need a TRS cable, which looks like a 1/4 inch jack but is really stereo. Maybe you need a stereo mini. Usually a cable mismatch is the problem. Is your phantom power supply passing stereo? All the ones I have seen are mono. You may need two. Is your sound capture set for stereo? Are the input level controls set correctly for equal volume on left or right channel? I would try the mic with a regular amplifier to insure both channels are working. Then trace the signal from mic to power supply and power supply to computer.

Wantind to add mics to my karaoke machine-Vocopro GiGMan karaoke system


I'd get a small mixer, then run mics into that, mix em down to 2 channels then send em to the karaoke machine, that way you have control in mixing multiple mics down to 2 channels, I wouldn't bother with 1/4 " mini plug mics or splitters personally.
A D.I. box ( direct injection ) takes an instrument or line level signal through a step down transformer and it comes out the other end as a mic level signal, the purposes of it are for running an electric instrument into it wich is split into 2, one for going to the input stage of a mic pre, the other can go back out to an instrument amplifier, this way you can run a direct signal into the console via " direct injection " into the mic pre as a mic level signal and also can run it to your instrument amplifier in order to be able to also mic the speaker cabinet acoustically at the same time, there are many benefits to this, for instance in live shows if the speaker cabinet or mic fails then you still have the direct signal, also since the direct signal tends to be punchier and clearer, cleaner, than an acoustically mic'd signal, they can both be mixed together at the console to give a a desired blend of each signal. Since there is a small delay between the direct signal and the acoustically mic'd signal because of distance of the mic from the soundsource delaying the direct signal a bit may be desired. D.I. boxes are only for instruments, they are superflous for vocals, the quality of the D.I. box does matter and active D.I.'s are the way to go, passives are as they are in speaker crossovers, less than desirable quality. There are also many tube D.I. boxes, generally a D.I. box isn't necessary for running an instrument into a consoles mic pre because most consoles take line level inputs as well, and there are other ways for getting a line level signal into a console by bypassing the mic pres anyways, If you have quality mic pres it's good to use them for the initial gain stage though as opposed to boosting instrument level to line level using a crappier preamp, for instance running an electric instrument input through an effects pedal will raise the instrument level to line level but of course an expensive mic pre will do a better job of it than an effects pedal will, since the first gain stage is paramount to quality......................

Add additional mics on the vocopro gigman all in one system


Putting spliiters on the input of a Mic priamp to connect to Mics to one pre is a bad idea. There are lots of techy reasons why, but the short version is "Don't Do it"

So how to solve your problem..


If you have a spare Line input you could buy a cheap external mixer, which will take the microphones and provide an appropriate level signal to your machine.

Something like this ought to do it..

If you have no line inputs, then you can use the output of the mixer into a DI Box to match the levels and use your exisiting Mic ins.

http://www.guitarcenter.com/Behringer-DI20-Ultra-DI-2-Channel-Active-DI-Box-Splitter-182481-i1125215.gc

DO NOT CONNECT THE LINE OUT FROM THE MIXER TO THE MIC INPUTS WITHOUT A DI BOX!
