    Just bought the SamsonG Track. No sound or very weak sound on playback even with volumes turned up on sound devices. Wizard indicates that there is some small level or recording and some small level of playback volume but neither is enough to record or playback anything.

    I have the same issue, in system preferences the output levels can be changed, but not the input levels, meaning that the mic needs to be turned up very high before you hear anything, and that gives terrible interference noise levels. I thought that maybe the new version of mac os x was the problem?

Hi, I bought the G-Track and after plugging in there is no LED diode signal coming up with green light. I had previosly the same mike and the LED was shining right after plugging in. The playback sound is very weak with low volume. Any help except reinstalling drivers?

Uninstall the software and driver and then reboot your pc and then reinstall it. it sounds like a problem with the drivers.

My microphone is not working. What do I do? Trying to use Skype, but microphone want work


Hi ldlw65,

Please follow the below steps to set up your microphone properly :-

  1. Firstly check if your microphone's cable is in proper order, if it has been damaged, then it's that physical fault which stops microphone from working.
  2. Now if the wire or cable of microphone is OK, check if you have connected your microphone in the correct slot , in your motherboard , usually there is a sign of mic besides the microphone slot.
  3. Then check for the control panel's sound and audio devices option , by going in your control panel, if you open it and go in the audio tab you should see your recording device as enabled.
    If it's disabled then you need to install your audio driver's again.
  4. Now , if everything is ok till here , all you need to do is do a microphone check by going to sound recorder (start >programs>accessories >entertainment>sound recorder )in windows xp , in case you are using windows xp or any relevant software in the other operating system which records audio.
  5. Once you have the application like sound recorder try speaking on mic while you activate the record option , if you see that your sound is being recorded, then your mic is functioning properly, if it's not then you need to check if your mic is the current recording device.
  6. To check if your mic is the current recording device , all you need to do it double click on the volume icon on your task bar and you will have volume control box open , then you need to go to the options menu and choose properties.sajjad4help_2.gif
  7. After you choose properties you will have a radio button for recording , select it and you will find devices for recording , then make sure microphone is selected and click ok.sajjad4help_6.gif
  8. After you select ok , then you need to select microphone from the recording options to activate recording via your microphone.sajjad4help_7.gif
Now you should be able to use your microphone properly without any problems.
Your feedback would be appreciated.
Hope this helps ..)

Samson G-Track recording volume issue


Try using a computer with a dedicated sound card, not an onboard sound chip. A condenser mike can't provide very much power on its own, and requires power from the attached receiver/amplifier.

Hy, I have a problem with my mic that is all ready instaled in my laptop also with a camera. When I go to the Control panel to see what is the problem, everything there is ok, but I am not able to work...


There are two separate mic settings in control panel - record and playback. Have you enable record also? See below. Also in Skype-Tools-Options check you have got the right audio device selected (normally WAVE)

Using a microphone with computer

To use any microphone with your computer you will need to enable it in control panel. The following instructions are for Windows XP but are broadly similar for Vista and Win7


Click START, CONTROL PANEL, SOUNDS & AUDIO DEVICES


Click VOICE


In Sounds & Audio Devices Properties window locate SOUND PLAYBACK box. Click the VOLUME button. Make sure that there is not a check-mark in the MUTE box against microphone in the list of devices and that the volume slider is at the top of the scale.


Make sure the MUTE ALL box isn't checked before closing the window.


Now click the VOLUME button in the SOUND RECORDING BOX. Here SELECT microphone as an input source for recording (as opposed to un-checking mute in the playback controls).


NOTE if your microphone is not listed in the 2 sets of volume controls click OPTIONS, PROPERTIES on the tool-bar and place a check against microphone in the list entitled 'show the following volume controls' and then click OK. Same applies for Internal mic.


That should be it.


To adjust audio volume generally.

Under VOLUME tab adjust Device Volume as necessary. Also (under Loudpeaker Settings) click Speaker Volume and adjust slider to suit.


You might put a check mark in the box to show the volume control on the Task Bar so you can go straight to it to make adjustments in the future.

Can i use behringer 200vmx usb to mix only with him and my pc trough usb cable,and only usb cable!!!! i have 5.1sound card, and asio driver?


Depending on the DAW software, you can record just his track at that time. Mixing can be done later with multi-track software, such as Cubase or ProTools.

There should be an extra device in the volume controls under your OS's control panel. That extra device will be your USB mic. Select this device for recording. Monitor the input recording levels BEFORE actually recording to check for clipping. When you are adjusted correctly, you should have plenty of volume, and no clipping. From there, you can modify that waveform like any other track.

Hope that helps!
