Check the input and output settings. Look in the preferences or settings menu for "i/o settings" or "i/o setup." You're going to set it from the default internal mic input to this one. It sounds like it may be that simple.

SOURCE: my behringer c1u doesn't have

First, I'll ask a question. Can you get any sound at all? If so, then you're getting the right amount of power, and your LED is broken. If not, then you've either got a problem with the USB port, the USB cable, or the mic itself.

If it's the port, you'll have to go to your computer's device manager and see if it brings up any errors with the USB.

If it's the cable, a new one can be purchased from Behringer.

If it's the mic, there might be a short somewhere inside, and a schematic, as well as someone who can solder, would be helpful.


Hope that helps!

How to Operate a Behringer C-1U

The Behringer C-1U is a USB condenser mic for recording individual instruments. A condenser microphone is a mic that uses vibrations produced by sound to change the distance of internal plates that produce signal. Condenser mics typically require an extra change, known as phantom power, to operate. Since the C-1U is USB powered, phantom power is not needed. The Behringer C-1U has a frequency response that favors sounds around the 10KHz range. This heightens the clarity of recorded signals due to the microphone's treble boost.

Things You'll Need:

* Computer with USB 2.0 port
* USB cable
* Recording software

Instructions

Turn on the computer. When the operating system loads, connect the microphone.

Install any necessary drivers for the C-1U. This will happen automatically when the device is connected.

Select the Behringer C-1U as an input source in any desired audio software. In Windows, click the "Volume" icon in the task bar to open the mixer. Select the C-1U as the primary input. On Macs, use the "Audio/MIDI Setup" in the "System Preferences" menu to select the C-1U as the primary input


Note: make sure you activate the phantom power on the mic. That's the only way to power up the microphone.

Have a nice day.

How do I get my Behringer C-1U mic to work?


I'm having the same problem, however I can say that Phantom Power is out of the question. the c-1u is a variation of the c-1. The difference is that the u doesnt require phantom power

I have an Behringer Xenyx 1222FX that won't power on but when switching on the phantom power light does illuminate. Checked all fuses and those are fine


The phantom power light wouldn't illuminate unless the unit was powered on. Possibly the main power indicator light is burned out.

The c-1 mic is not working.The red light will not turn on when i put it into my laptop


With the C-1 it does require phantom power to work. On the board your using make sure the +48(phantom power) button is pressed in and it should be golden.
If it's the C-1U, the drivers must be installed first. http://www.behringer.com/EN/Products/C-1U.aspx
Good Luck, Cody J.

I have a mic Behringer C1u and would use it with an M-Audio fast track usb interface. How can I do it?


You will need to turn on the phantom power which will be a switch labled eithe PHANTOM or +48V to use the condenser mic. YOu MUST use an XLR to XLR cable.

I tried to play my behringer microphone through an audio box and through the audiobox to an amp and i think I blew it out. The red light on the microphone won't turn on. Is there any fix for it?


I don't know what you mean by "audio box".

This microphone REQUIRES "phantom power" and if your "audio box" does not provide that or the switch on it is set to phantom off, the light will not come on.

How to connect behringer ultragain pro mic


Here is the manual:http://www.behringer.com/EN/downloads/pdf/MIC2200_P0054_M_ENG.pdf Plug your microphone into the input using a proper cable. Plug another balanced cable into the output on the back and plug it into a microphone input on the mixing board. If your mixing board already has phantom power, disable it for that input as the MIC2200 has phantom power. Read the manual carefully and take note of the directions for phantom power and balanced cables. Make sure you follow the directions carefully. If you need the manual in a different language look the MIC2200 up under products at Behringer.com and you can download in pdf format in many different languges.

My microphone doesn't do it right.


Some of the Podcast mics are condenser mics and MUST be used with a preamp or DEVICE that supplies PHANTOM power to the mic.

You computer DOESN"T supply Phantom power.

Read up on Phantom power in Google to understand it.
