Salutations welove2scuba,

I would first ask how you are connecting the computer, it would be best to use a "Line In" jack to your computer if you have one. Using the microphone jack could cause issues as it is a powered connection and could be causing your feedback.

A good way to connect a computer to a receiver would be to treat it as if it were a cassette recorder. Most receivers will have a "Play (out)" and "Rec (in)" for a cassette deck, or DVD recorder and in some cases VCR's. If you connect the "Rec (in)" to the "Line In" jack, this should give you a clean signal with out any additional amplification to avoid interference.

Cordially,
Jon

How do I switch off the microphone to stop the speakers feeding back on my laptop. And how to set the levels when I am recording, to stop feedback.


I think it won't be possible to get rid of the feedback and quality will be poor when recording this way. Try software like Audacity and set the audio source to record directly from the sound card. The input device should be set to "Windows WASAPI" for Windows and output set to a loopback device.

There is a horrible echo whenever i try to record and then there's a loud noice that sounds like a very high-pitched whistle and i don't know what to do.


This type of audio feedback loop can happen on any mic if you are playing back audio at a loud volume on speakers that are close to the mic while the mic is on - which tends to happen on Skype calls. Try lowering your speaker volume or using headphones to hear the audio, then speak into mic, and the feedback should be reduced.

Backpanel socket for microphone is not recognised. Speaker socket is alright.


in order to hear sound on the microphone you need to check the Mixer settings as the default setting for microphone (for playback) is mute as you would get some horrible feedback..

double click on the speaker icon in the bottom left and chose properties from the options menu you may (or may not) have the option to select microphone for playback, however there should be a setting for recording which should give you a slider to set the recording levels for the microphone, use sound recorder or other recording software to test microphone is working

Feedback when trying to record with Audacity


Try turning down your speaker volume. This can cause feedback and is what the problem is.

I have a m-audio buddy using a mlx 990. I have this hooked to 200 ohm peavy amp. The problem is I can barely touch the gain on the pre-amp or the amp without getting extreme feedback.


It appears that the condenser microphones that are omni directional are too sensitive to process thru an amplifier. I used an mlx 991 directional condenser microphone and though still very sensitive, I was able to avoid the feedback. According to the company condenser microphones are used more for recording and not so much for live stage.

Quiet Noisey feedback out of speakers


The speakers are not hooked up correctly. I don't know if you still have the instructions but it is a hardware problem and not software. Try to figure out how to hook them up correctly.

Feedback noise from mixer


Your mixer is already grounded, and does not need any additional grounding. It is grounded through the Power Cord.

Now, the feedback might be coming from one of the units you have connected to the mixer. The issue could also be the cable you are connecting to your recorder. Are you recording to a computer, or to some other external recorder (CDR / DVR / MDR, etc?) - try a different cable. Also try the different outputs on the mixer - you have 2 balanced line outputs you can record directly from. Don't use the RECORD OUT line, it's an unbalanced line, and if you want a good quality signal to record, your best bet is to use the XLR outputs. However, that might be connected to your amp or something.

What do you have going to the unit? Disconnect everything, and try by connecting each item 1 by 1, to eliminate where this feedback is coming from. Also, check for any ground loops that you might have, if you have a lot of equipment hooked up in your set up. (Educate yourself on Ground Loops)

If all else fails, get yourself a HUM ELIMINATOR.
