The Califone AX-12 has a 3.5mm connector on the cord. This should plug into the sound card on your computer... usually found on the back of the computer in the same general area that the speakers plug in.

You cannot connect those mics to the computer directly but you use a soundcard for the inputs. If your computer has a soundcard and you connect the mic to it. Try using mixer software like Nero that come with certain CD writers

Connection


if it plugs into the line in or mic in using the 3.5 mm plug then no, the mic won't need a driver. Your playback and recording devices on your computer DO need drivers. Sounds like a computer config issue to me. Could be a few different things

I purchased a R31S Samson Microphone and it cant be detected when i plug it in to my computer microphone jack. What is it to do?


A dynamic mic connected to the your computer's mic jack is an analog connection. So your computer won't give a notification that there's a mic connected. However, you can view input levels through the default windows mixer of your sound card or any program or application installed on your computer that has the capability. Had it been connected through usb or firewire, it would be digital and you wold be notified that the device had been detected via device drivers etc.
Hope this helps

I'm trying to use my PG mic and connect it to my computer to record but I can't hear myself in the computer. The mic works if I connect it to a monitor. My audio is fine and my computer mics work fine on...


To connect a professional mic to a computer, you will need a USB interface such as the Shure X2u. Professional mics have too low of an output level to be connected directly to a computer.

I plucked it in my computer, installed it, and all


Your Rode NT1-A mic is a very good microphone, specially for vocal recordings, but as most of the proffesional microphones needs a power supply. To be more spesific when you use your NT1-A with an audio console or a mixer, the microphone preamplifier provide at the mocrophone 48Volts for it to work. In order to use NT1-A with the computer you can:
  1. either you have to connect the mic with a mixer or a console and the audio output (line out) from the console to your computer's line in.
  2. or you have to buy a "phantom power supply for microphones" in order to use this one between your pc and the NT1-A. In that case you will connect at the mic in of the computer.
Personally I suggest the first solution since the pc's mic pre-amplifier in not as good as a deticated mic preamplifier from a mixer or a console. I have to notice that if your 're about to buy a mixer for that use remember to ask for one with phantom power supply for the mic (or mics).
In case of a clarificationdon't hesitate to post.

I have connected the samson mic to my computer. input not detecte


A condenser mic. requires "phantom power" usually supplied by a mixing desk. Without this, there will be no output signal from the mic.

How should I place the tie mic


Typically you want to wear the mic 6 to 8 inches below your chin clipped to the lapel area. It seems in this case it has more to do with EQ and speaker placement. If you can stand behind the speakers while using the mic. The sound bouncing back and forth between the mic and the speaker is what causes feedback. Also try setting the mic channels EQ with the following settings.
Turn Lows down to about 7 to 9 O'clock
Play with Mids to match actual source, but never boost above 12 O'clock
Keep highs around 10 O'clock (boosting highs increses chances of feedback.) If to muddy sounding keep highs aroun 12 but not over.
Good Luck
