SOURCE: AKG Perception 100 not working, at all

The problem is that your amp probably doesn't have phantom power. This mic requires phantom power to be supplied to it via the XLR connector. Most mixers and mic pres have that feature, but most guitar amps do not, I believe. Hope that helps...

SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: AKG Perception 200 Mic stopped working. I use it

The simple thing to check would be to see if your 48V phantom power switch on your mixer is turned on. Sometimes there is an individual button to turn it on and off for each channel strip. Good Luck

Have you tried using a another XLR cable..,or are the other mics phantom powered condensers..ie try to locate if its a mic problem or the cable..2 other points are 1 - XLR leads for phantom mics need to be XLR to XLR male to Female plugs[ends] 2- is that often an XLR to XLR cable will be not soldered or wired right,so that the power [phantom power is not getting to the mic] so ensure you have a proper cable for that job...Sorry i can't be more specific but from reading your problem all these issues come to mind..If you have ruled all these things out,then it could be the capsule or loose joint or component in the mic which means contact AKG,pro audio services or find a DIY mic person to help..G luck!!

Try building a little mike-preamp with an opamp to boost the signal.
Enough schematics on internet.
Or walk into an electronics shop for a ready to build package.
These are the things I can suggest; I don't know your audiobox.
Perhaps there is internally a pot-meter to adjust the gain of your mike; that would be the easiest solution.

AKG 120 to Tascam US-800 connection issues


There is no reason to use such a configuration with the US-800. I advise using a standard XLR mic cable. It's likely phantom power doesn't work over the 1/4" jacks.

My mic only records on the right side


This is a single condenser cardioid pattern mike, it picks sounds only from the front - maybe all you have to turn it in the right direction Have you checked the mike in another place? If it's the same then the condenser inside is misaligned - if it's out of warranty open it and replace correctly the condenser mike.

Getting mic setup thru cubase le 4


Make sure phantom power is enabled on the Tascam audio interface and you must enable the input in cubase that corresponds with the interface input on the track you are trying to record to.
