We have hooked out tech 12's up to our dell with onboard sound and have used a rca on one side and a line in jack on the other and just test your sounds and you should be fine to plug it into the mic or speaker plugs, it won't be perfect quality but it should work out for you
Let me know how it goes

Have you used a shotgun microphone before? Is there any changes you need to do in the recording setup to use shotguns?


First you need to get the understanding for the use of a shotgun mic.
It's ment to be used for movies, live recordings, and mic mixing.
So for mic mixing you need to get all the mics for the musicians leveled and then you mix the whole studio sound together by getting a level of how all sound is in sync.
I hope this was helpful.

Microphone not working


I think it is safe to say 90% of radio problems are microphone. You get a cheap one when you by just about any radio. I believe you are seeing the meter move but not getting audio from your talkback. No matter remove the mic jack plug from radio. For you particular radio looking at the end of the jack notice the small raised numbers. These female connectors no matter the mic type wired for this radio model has the following wires connected or in your case disconnected. 1-(Ground) 2- (Audio) 3-(Transmit) and 4- (Receive).
A RK56 mic would be my suggestion Astatic 636L the second choice a little cheaper but audio it not a crisp.
Don't waste your money a repairing the mic or buying a diesel or road pro or even a cdl mic like a cdl 56 or that Skythumper they are RoadKing 56 wannabees. Sorry about the rant my point is RK56 is Quality.

I have a panasonic sa-ak58 sterio system and woud like to pug my mic into it. how do i do so


Hi
You would need to buy a small mixing desk which would plug into the AUX input at the back of your Stereo. Your microphone would plug into the Mixing desk.
Good luck. Michael

Hallo .i have a problem with this: microphone condenser electret toshiba EM-220 how should it work?? it need a phantom power 48+??? i have just a normal audio jack on the mic.to plug into my mixer with...


If it is a condensor mic, it will need phantom power, some mixing desks have specific inputs that have phantom power and there is usually a switch to press. Also some mics use a battery instead of using the phantom power on the mixing des.

Good luck

I have Lexicon alpha, Condenser Mic, phantom power .If i record, the voice goes only to right speaker. I am using cubase le 4, stereo in/out are correctly.


Sorry, but the Lexicon Alpha does NOT have Phantom power and you can't use a condenser mic with it without a Phantom power injector or preamp.
If you mean you have a Phantom power injector then it should be working. Do you have seperate mics for the two channels of the stereo? If you have only one mic, then only one side will record unless you set for mono recording and then dump the recording into stereo voa Cubase. I would recommend you get a small mixer... even a 4 channel one to use ahead of the Lexicon so you can mix and PAN your mics the way you want them. The recording and trying to control the panning in Cubase can be frustrating... The Lexicon really doesn't have anything built in to PAN the mic to the center when stereo recording. Small mixers are inexpensive and often you can find them used or in pawn shops for cheap.

I get a quiet signal when using the mic.


Hi,

You should use the mic input of your computer.
If it's not there, use a microphone pre-amplifier.

I need the pinout for the Avaya 2400 series telephone headset RJ-11 Jack.


I noticed that Avaya headset is different from the Avaya handset or any other standard headset: The outer two pins are switched.

Avaya-Headset-pinning is like this:
Look to the RJ11 and turn it until you see leads from top and from front, then from left to right you look at
1) mic 5V
2) speak
3) speak
4) mic gnd

RJ11 of Avaya-handset and any standard headset/handset from the supermarket:
1) mic gnd
2) speak
3) speak
4) mic 5V

Hope that helps.

First you must determine if the mic's output from the receiver is low or high impedence. Tip: high imp. is usually a 1/4" jack , low imp. is a 3 pin XLR Conector. It also depends on your amplifier input jacks.But really you should connect the mic to a mixing console and then connect the console to the amp.But you could connect a high imp. mic via a 1/4" to 1/4",cable into the 1/4" jack on your guitar amp.

Motorola h700


Ok here is the answer. There H700 have a small foam windscreen inside over the microphone that over time block the sound. The answer is to carefully open the unit and remove the obstruction and clean residue from the microphone and it will work like new. here is a link to pictures and instructions. http://www.geocities.com/jconkwright/H700fix.html

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......................
