Open Question

I can hardly get any sound (db) from my Audix 6 base drum mic, even with the preamp turned up to 10. The jacks are working fine. Do you think it's defective?

Take it easy, there is no way to damage a dynamic microphone using a phantom power (assuming that the phantom power is correct). In other words try using another cable at another input to check the mic. In the extremely rare case that the mic has a problem there is nothing you can do, just take care and check the phantom power cause I think that the problem is at this stage.

I can't get hardly any volume when I plug a mic directly into the a or b channel on the back. Do I absolutely have to use a pre-amp?


The amp takes LINE LEVEL which is in the order of 1 volt or 0 Db... a mic generates only -40DB. You need a preamp or a mixer between the mic and this amp.

Make sure the phantom power supply is on and working correctly on the board. These mics need phantom power to operate.

Have you checked if the option for the Microphone is selected? Go to the Sound settings and then click Option/s. Make sure Microphone or Mic is selected.

Thanks!

Preamp noise


Hi KenO2

First thing to check is that the phantom power is not turned on. If you are using a condenser mic, then it should. If you are using dynamic mic, then it will crackle and makes weird noises in the manner you describe. Other than that it sounds like you have a failing op amp in your preamp. This sort of repair work is not expensive(with respect to the outcome). I would anticipate $40-60 to fix it. Trouble is you can replace it super cheap at the moment 45% off for $64.95plus $9.95 shipping from zzsounds

So I guess that it may not be worth repairing, and more a replacement item for that money. If you have a mate with electronics experience, you could just replace the opamps at home for $10 worth of parts.

If you think my advice helped you to work out what to do, a FixYa rating would be great. Cheers

Audio deosn't work on mobo


Hi Chris, the problem can be one of two issues. If the sound jack located at the back of the PC did function at the same time as the front case sound jack. Than the problem is the jack it's self is bad. (Back of PC). Someone had to hook up the front mic & sound jack to the motherboard. So disconnecting the front sound & mic may give you rear sound & mic.
Turn to page 2-29 in you're user manual for the Asus M2N-SLI. The pic shown is the default setting for the front case audio & mic. (What you do see are the two jumpers connected). So disconnect any connector & place a jumper over pins 9 & 10, (last two pins at the right of the two rows of pins). Place another jumper over pins 5 & 6.
Pin 1 is the first pin on the left bottom row (MIC2). Pin 2 is the first pin, left edge top row (AGND). Pin 8 is not installed but you still count its spot as if there was a pin. (This is how the board was setup from factory). Once you fix this you should regain sound & mic function at the rear of the PC. To fine tune the audio run the Asus sound effect manager. If you installed this software, (Recommended). If it’s not by you're clock than it’s in control panel.

Low audio input


You need to use a mic preamp or a mixer with a mic preamp built in. The inputs on the FCA202 are line level and they won't work with a mic directly.
