Question about Samson G-TRACK USB RECORDING MICROPHONE Microphone

1 Answer

Inputs the instrument input is useful in the sense that it provides a decent quality pre amp if you plug an electric guitar in but for sufficient bolume with an acoustic guitar even through the instrument input you have to turn the gain on the device very high and it becomes digitalised. i'm really at a loss on how to sort this problem out.

    I've just emailed customer services again. I will tell you what they say when they reply.

    I've actually read that snippet on recording acoustic guitars
    previously. It's at the back of the manual. Yet if i followed those
    instructions re:miking distances there would be no output at all!

    I'll be in touch. Thanks for all your help.

    p.s. I've tried both the system tray and control panel.

    I have an acoustic-electric guitar which I've plugged into the instrument input of the G track. When I record, the volume of the guitar is extremely low. I have to turn the instrument volume nearly all the way up, and even then it isn't loud enough and it also sounds bad. I have adjusted the volume on the system tray as well as in the control panel to maximum level. This doesn't help. I'm using Sonar LE as my DAW. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

Ok, heres what try contacting the support line on your samson mic and ask the setup if you are going to connect an acoustic guitar, there might be some info for it. actually there is here check this out

Acoustic Guitar
There are a variety of ways that the G Track can be used to mic an acoustic guitar. The
microphone placement will depend on the type of instrument and what kind of sound
you’re looking to capture, for example the tonal quality you want to focus on, and how
much finger slide or pick noise you may or may not want. When miking a standard
steel string acoustic, a good place to start is with the microphone positioned pointing
towards the end of the fingerboard at a distance of about 6 inches to 2 feet away from
the instrument. You can experiment by moving the microphone slightly in the direction
of the sound hole, which will produce more low frequencies, or move it in the direction
of the fingerboard to capture more high-end or to remove any unwanted boominess.
For nylon string acoustic, try positioning the microphone above the bridge to emphasize
more of the attack from the sound of the finger picking, or for less, move the mic closer
to the sound hole. If you have a pair of G Tracks, try one positioned at the fingerboard
and the second over the sound hole.

How do I connect my GK3 equipped guitar to an Electric Piano or Synth ?


You cannot connect a Gk3 directly to an electric piano or synth. What you have to do is connect the 13 pin DIN connecting cable from the gk3 to the input on a Roland guitar synth unit like GR 20 or the GR 55 which supplies the desired instrument tones as required. The synth can be connected via 5 pin midi cable to an external synth to provide further tones...I personally have never used a keyboard to provide extra tones because I am a guitarist so only used synth modules and not keyboard ....remember also you need an amp or pa system to hear the sound output from the guitar synth module or external module.

i dont' see where this model has active pickups (guessing this is what you mean by pre-ampped).
The issue can be in a few places.

1) the strings could be too far from the pickups and the instrument needs to be tuned.
2) the pickups are bad
3) your jack is bad
4) the cable is bad
5) your equilizers are not corrected
6) your volume control is turned down or damaged
7) your amp is damaged

this is a small list of the basic possibilities.

Make sure you have the input and output cables to the correct side. The power should come on when you plug in the INPUT cable from teh guitar. A mic MAY have insufficient output to drive this. You may need to use a guitar that has a preamp built in.

Generates buzzing noise even when only cable is connected to it. No cable - no noise.


If you are saying that you are plugging a guitar cord into an input on an amp without the guitar on the other end and you are getting a hum or buzz with the volume turned up ; that is normal. If you are getting the same results with a guitar plugged in it means the ground wire to your output jack on your guitar is broken. Check your cord with a volt ohm meter for continuity on the tip on one end to the tip on the other end. Do this for the sleeve on one end to the other. If you were getting the buzz without a cable it would mean that your input jack in your amp has a broken ground connection. Hope this helps.

Plugging line level into my crate TX15. all inputs sound distort


guitar amps are all set to a low Z resistance configuration. wich are made for guitar only. make sure you are using the right cables.
you need sheilded guitar cable not unshielded speaker cable in many cases these cables look exactly the same. look at your cable look for the words speaker or instrument. you need the instrument cable. if you still have that problem. then you may just not be satisfied with the quality of the amp it self.
