How can I switch the mic input from the built-in mics to XLR input?


on the left side of the unit there is a small switch , , set this switch to MIc , or if using a condenser mic set to phantom-mic this gives the mic power , but I will caution you to watch you units power ind as with that setting you battery will drain down quicker than usuall , you will get best results with balanced mic's as the other types will introduce noise (thumping sound) into the recording also try to keep cord lengths down to less than 15 feet as this will introduce noise into recording as well

The input levels of the left and right microphones are highly inequal, what can I do?


perhaps the left speaker is damaged
what i would do is load a known mp3 too the sdcard
and play it back on your unit

if its aok level wise
then the left mic has an issue
try an external input too the left mic
if it again records bad there is an issue with the input amp and alc circuit
if it records ok chances are the left electret mic has failed and will need replaced out usually these small mics have an amp built in then this output goes at line level to the input switched between line level in mic in or internal mic in as a mix....

How do i get levels from my g track mic im using cubase le 5 i only get one side level how do i fix this issue?


The mic is only on the Left channel, and instrument input is on the Right channel. So in Cubase you need to select only the Left channel in your first track, and then only the Right channel in your second track, and then you can record Vocals and Instrument at the same time on 2 different tracks.

Hi, I cannot get stereo signal from my mic. I used the recording level L/R knob correctly, but when I go to the left side, there's not signal at all. Should I use a different type of cable? Thanks,...


You mention "mic"... to do stereo you need two mics...

If you are trying to "PAN" a single mic, then you should use a WYE cable and have the single mic go to both input channels.

When I record with the internal mic or the BA


I had that problem too. What you need to check is the input level on the right side. Turn the wheel all the way up to 100 and the internal mic should be fine.

When i record my vocals its only in one channel why!


Hi,

It seems that the recording input source is provided as "Line In" whereas you need to select the "Mic In".
This is because the "Line In" is a stereo input and expects input for both right and left channels whereas the "Mic In" input is a mono input which is the same as our default condensed mic device is.

By the way, you would be able to see the graphic VU meters while recording, weren't they displayed that the recording is done only for one channel ?
Always use VU meters for checking the levels for recording, they are available with almost all recording softwares.

Hope this helps.

Thanks

How do I use 2 mics for the XL2 simultaneously?


Hi, on the left side of the camera you can set 'audio monitor'. Default is channel 1/2. You can choose to listen to 3/4 or 1/2 and 3/4 simultaneous.
In the menu of the cam you can set between 12 bit audio recording or 16 bit. 16 bit only records on channel 1/2 (the front mic). In 12 bit mode you can record audio on 4 channels.
hope this answers a bit of your question

Microphone Recording


It all has to do with your VST Connections in Cubase LE (if you are using Cubase LE).

What you have to do is:
1)Go in and label you inputs and outputs in the Device Setup. Select " US 122L-US 144" Here your inputs and outputs should be displayed. You should be able to see which input is "active" and which ones are "inactive".

2) After noting which ones are active label these devices. Click the "Show As" section and label you "active" outputs as speakers or whatever you like. Also label you inputs which should be your mic or MIDIs.

3) After labeling, click " VST System Link" and make sure the correct input and output is selected, Example: (Input: AKG Perception 220, Out-put: Speakers/ Headphones) Hit Ok!

4) Bring up the "VST Connections" menu (F4) or (Device> VST Connections). Clear out all your outputs and inputs!

5) In your outputs click "Add Bus" Select stereo and 1. This should come up as whatever you labeled the outputs ( Speakers/Headphones for me!)

6) In your inputs click " Add Bus" Select Mono and 2. Here is where you should get one input that says the name of your input( AKG Perception 220 in L) The one below it should be ( US-144 Analog R or L) Click this and choose your Microphone! You should have the 2 options with your microphone named.

7) Test it (record something) and see if it works and plays in both ears if you want more clarification feel free to message me!!!!!!!

I HOPE THIS WORKS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

AKG Perception Microphone ony recording in mono but want stereo.


I have similar problems with inputing stereo sound. How do you know your mic port on the PC is set for stereo? What kind of a cable are you using? If it is an XLR, the connection is pure mono. Maybe you need a TRS cable, which looks like a 1/4 inch jack but is really stereo. Maybe you need a stereo mini. Usually a cable mismatch is the problem. Is your phantom power supply passing stereo? All the ones I have seen are mono. You may need two. Is your sound capture set for stereo? Are the input level controls set correctly for equal volume on left or right channel? I would try the mic with a regular amplifier to insure both channels are working. Then trace the signal from mic to power supply and power supply to computer.

Can not record vocal and guitar at the same time


The monitoring switch should not affect the recording at all. Maybe you have a defective mic?

Does it record from the line input if you set it to Line In mode?
