You need to buy a USB interface (I use an M-Audio M-Track interface on my Mac) that plugs into your computer and the preamp will supply the 48 volts for the microphone. There are lots of different models of interfaces to choose from. Just make sure the description says it is able to supply 'phantom power'.

Once you have the mic plugged into the interface, and the interface plugged into a USB port on your computer, then you need to startup your favorite recoding program (I use Sound Studio on my Apple Macintosh) and open the Preferences and select the USB interface as your sound source.

Since I don't use Garage Band I'm not sure how you select the USB interface. A left-handed guess is that you may have to go to System Preferences - Sound - Input and select the USB interface.

You'll need an interface or a mixer.

SOURCE: Samson G Track USB Mic

To get sound in both channels in Garageband for a podcast using the G-Track Microphone:    select a voice track to record into    make sure the Track Info window is open (blue i button in lower right region of screen)    at the bottom of the Track Info window you will find Input Source:    Change the default setting of Stereo to Mono 1 (USB Audio CODEC)
This assumes you have gone to Garageband preferences and changed the Audio/Midi settings for audio input to USB Audio CODEC which appears when you plug in the G-Track Mike

Technically, you can plug any microphone into a computer via an audio interface or USB(if applicable) With this mic it will require an audio interface just remember that since you are using a condenser you will need an interface that can supply phantom power. Good Luck, Cody J.

What USB adapter is best to use with the GXL2200?


If you're going to use a mixer anyway, it'd probably be better to run the mixer into the line-in of the computer. Even better would be to just get a USB recording interface, and do the mixing in the software.

Otherwise, Behringer, Alesis, Yamaha, and probably other all make USB mixers that should be of similar quality (i.e., very low).

How do I connect my CAD GXL2200 mic to my apple laptop?


You need a USB interface such as an M-Audio M-Track and a standard XLR male to female audio cable.

You use the cable to connect the microphone to the interface using the XLR cable, then you plug the USB cable on the interface to a USB port on your laptop. Finally, you go to System Preferences - Sound - Input and select the USB interface as the input source.

Depending on the software you you use for recording sound (I use Sound Studio from Felt Tip Software) you may need to go into the Preferences for the program and select the USB interface.

What is the best way to run the mic on desktop


Your condensor mic requires special electrical handling usually reserved for proffesional audio equipment, not a PC. You will need two pieces of equipment, a short XLR cable and an adapter cable.
1) Behringer PS400 Ultra-Compact Phantom Power Supply.
This will supply the mic with necessary Phantom Power.
2) Rapco Horizon ISOBLOX Transformer Isolation 1:1 BLOX Device
This will isolate the Phantom Power from your computer, allowing it to work as necessary.
The adaptor connector cable you need will be a female XLR (with pins 1 and 3 shorted, pin 2 hot), through a cable connect to a 1/8" mini plug. They connect in that order with a short XLR cable between 1) and 2). .

I don't believe the GXL2200 has a power switch directly on the microphone itself. Would you be able to tell me how you are supplying phantom power to the microphone?

I have a gxl 2200 mic and my computer acknowledges the mic but i cant record anything because when i play it back there is no sound


You'll need a phantom power source, like an interface or mixer. Otherwise, the mic is likely in need of repair.

Imac-samson-gtrack mic compatability


From the Samson Audio website...

"Ideal for the traveling musician or the project studio, the G-Track ships with a desktop mic stand, swivel stand mount, USB cable and all the cables needed to connect any musical instrument with a standard 1/4" or RCA output. The G-Track ships with Cakewalk's Sonar LE and works brilliantly with Apple's GarageBand."

If it states that it works with GarageBand, I would say that it would work on a mac.
