This microphone requires 48v Phantom power. So if you are trying to connect it to your computer, you will need to use a USB interface that will provide phantom power. If you are connecting it via a mixer, make sure Phantom power is switched on if it is available. As the MXL 3000 is only available new from Guitar Center or Musicians Friend, they can also provide you with what else you need.

If you can't work this out you shouldn't be in audio production, you are clearly too stupid to produce anything of value

No sound from my mxl v67 condenser mic


These things use Phantom Power, from your mixer. If it HAS it.
If not, now you know, get an external supply ($$!).

Does a MXL 990 microphone work without an inbox ?


You must connect the mic to a mixing board or similar unit which will provide Phantom Power to the mic for it to work.

Does an MXL 990 microphone only work with an inbox?


By "inbox" do you mean a transformer that powers it?
Condenser mics need 48 volts (phantom power) to run, so you normally switch the phantom power button on for the channel you have the condensor mic. plugged into.

How do i get my MXL 770 mic to work in my PC


There is an interface box that adapts USB to Phantom Power. Look at your local music store or online at Musicians Friend or a similar site.

No sound from mxl 990 condenser mic


From the Micropower PS400 product description it states:

"routes the microphone signal to a mixer or a microphone preamplifier."

• these is just a phantom power supply.


One reason your former setup is OK , is that

tascam m-50 is a mixer preamplifier.

• phantom power supply is just a part of the mic preamp of the mixer

to power up your mxl 990 condenser mic


• What you may need is something like these:

MXL 990 doesn't work


Your other preamp does not have phantom power to supply power to the microphone. All condensor mics like this need phantom power. The Audio Buddy provides phantom power, which is why it was shipped with those condensor mics

Pls help


The MXL 990s requires 48 volts to operate. If your mixer does not have a phantom power option, you will need to purchase a microphone pre-amplifier with phantom power to interface the microphone to your mixer.
