No sound from mxl 990 condenser mic


From the Micropower PS400 product description it states:

"routes the microphone signal to a mixer or a microphone preamplifier."

• these is just a phantom power supply.


One reason your former setup is OK , is that

tascam m-50 is a mixer preamplifier.

• phantom power supply is just a part of the mic preamp of the mixer

to power up your mxl 990 condenser mic


• What you may need is something like these:

I have set-up M-Audio microphone recently but I can't seem to figure out HOW to begin using it. I've tried every drop down and clicked every recording button while I was using the software. . . is there...


Without knowing your setup or the mic model, my guess is that you need to run a phantom power supply to the mic to get it to function. This is done either by using an outboard analog mixing console or mic preamp with a phantom power switch, or using an inline phantom power supply. The microphone plugs into the mixer or mic pre with the phantom turned on, and then into your DAW system.
The phantom power works with condensor microphones like the one you have. It sends a 48v signal to the microphone element, which in turn energizes the element and makes it function. Dynamic mics, like a Shure SM 58 for example, do not need the phantom power and will even ignore it if run on a phantom powered channel. condensor mics however must have it to function, otherwise there will not be any sound. Hope this helps. Good Luck.

Mic/line inputs Yamaha md8 Multitrack recorder not working


A little testing is required to nail this down.

1) Will a standard mic work in either channel?
2) Will a line level source work in either channel?

It is likely that either the power supply for the phantom power or the supply for the mic pre-amp IC has failed or the IC itself has failed. If a standard mic works, then it is the phantom power supply that is faulty.

I am not aware of any service manual available other than from Yamaha directly (for a price of course...)

If you can update this with the test results, perhaps we can walk through this repair.

I cant seem to be able to record anything on my microphone it is not picking up any sound. Why is that?


your CAD mic is a condensor mic and needs phantom power. If you don't have that it won't work. If you need phantom power you can get it from a small mixer. We here at proline carry some small multi channel mixers that have phantom power in them. call 215-736-8055

I have a MXL 990 studio mic which I recorded one no longerworks


Are you using the original cable for the mike? In order to use phantom power the XLR connectors have to be wired in balanced configuration. Pins 1,2 and 3 must be wired separately. If you use a cable with 1and 3 connected you could damage the phantom power supply and in some cases the microphone.

Why is my mic not picking up noise like it did when i first gotit


Double-check on the side of the microphone to make sure you didn't inadvertently activate the 10db pad.  If so, switch it back to the center position.
Also, on the US-122, make sure that the input is set to "mic" and that you have switched the Phantom Power to the "On" position.
