Question about Samson R21S Microphone

1 Answer

What do you hook the microphone up on a stereo in order for it to work? My son says it is the AUX setting?

I have this microphone (SAmson R21S) and would like to use it but am unsure of where to plug the end in . Is it a "phones" jack or is it aux?

Connecting r21s to laptop


The input to the laptop usually requires a stereo or TRS type 1/8 inch plug If the mic has an XLR type connector, you need a special cable that connects the XLR pins 1 and 3 (adjacent pins) to the shield of the 1/8 inch plug and pin 2 of the XLR connector to BOTH the tip and ring of the little stereo jack. Such a cable is not commonly available so the best is to make one from parts you get at Radio Shack.

I am connecting my R21S to my laptop but i am unable to record sound..


Depending on what operating system you have, you need to open up the "Sounds and Audio Devices" in the Control Panel and make sure the Sound Recoring device is enabled. You may have to load a driver to enable it. You can also adjust the "microphone" or "line in" recording volume in that window (assuming you have Windows XT or later operating system).

Good luck!

My microphone doesn't work, I can't hear any voice. Can you help me? That is R21S microphone


its probably a wire came loose, unscrew the head (airguard) then you should h ave 2 tiny screws that hold the switch in place, carefully slide it forward and as you do push the main cord for the amp plug in along with it as you push it through,, check those wires to be sure the connection hasn't come loose

Do i need a driver for mic r21s to work on my compuer for karaoke?


No, but you do need one thing. You have two options. Option one is a Mixer with USB output or USB Interface. Option two is to buy a USB Audio Interface. Personally, I'd go with option one because you can control every aspect of the mic and the music or instrument. The USB Interface does need a driver but it is included. The R21S Mic is an XLR Dynamic Mic.

I just today bought a Samson R21S microphone, and I plugged it into my laptop via the laptops microphone jack, and immediately had problems. It cuts off my voice in mid sentence, it wont get half of my...


Not really the mic's fault - just incompatible.
Your Samson mic is a "dynamic" type and the laptop is expecting a "condensor" type.
You could put the mic through a preamp first but easier to exchange for a more suitable type.

Hope this helps.

Doesn't pick-up sound


First I'd check the cable and make sure it's alright. Try another cable you know is good. If it still has low output unfortunately, it's probably the capsule.If the mic is new I'd send it in for warranty repair if not contact samson @ their website for repair info.

Trying to use a microphone but not sure how to hook it up


No because the mic is a signel in device and the headphone jack is a signal out jack! meaning if you plug the mic into it the mic will act as a speaker and music will come out of it and ruin it!
I would buy an adapter at radio shack and plug it into the phono input on the back of unit! and if you dont have a phono input you will need to buy a small pre-amp and plug it into the aux or tape input!
That will work!
Please rate my answer!
Thank You!

Playback only on left speaker


The quick, easy solution is to change your microphone to mono recording. In the attached YouTube clip, I'll show you how to do that.

The short and simple is to go to your Mac HD -> Applications -> Utilities -> Audio MIDI Setup. Select your C01U USB device, and set it to 1ch 16bit. This will set the microphone to record in mono, equally over both speakers.
