SE2200A "wind" noises during recording

Hi, I've been using a SE electronics 2200A condenser over the last year and have encountered a recurring problem when recording. Basically when recording vocals the mic will work fine for 1 - 5 hours and then a "wind" noise starts creeping in underneath the vocals, once it starts it eventually becomes so strong that we cannot record. I know "wind" isn't very descriptive but it's a horrible background noise that becomes so audible it ruins the recording. We have tried using over a dozen different working XLR-XLR mic leads and we're recording into a 'MOTU 828' sound card (even tried a DIGI 002 and encountered the same problem) which means it isn't a problem with the sound cards preamp. It's only with this microphone that we have this issue, usually by not using it for a few days it would give us a couple more days of recording. But now it's got to the point where within 2 minutes of being plugged in it makes this loud horrible "windy" background noise. Any ideas what this is? Or how it can be resolved? Any help would be much appreciated!

Its very descriptive and is quite a common problem with less expensive condenser mics. It's due to dirt or contamination on the capsule insulator or front end circuitry of the electronics. SE should be able to fix it for not much money.

Hi, I have a Panasonic SA-BTT270 that it turns off when my home central AC unit turns on. I’ve had this surround system for about 5 years now and it barely started doing this about 6 months ago. Any...

I don't know the answer but I just wanted to mention; many VCRs contained a dew sensor to prevent the unit operating at times of high humidity or when condensation formed in the machine.

Perhaps your system has a similar sensor and it detects high humidity or condensation when your air-con is operating.

Connecting JVC television set model AV29LX2 / JVC home theatre system/satellite decoder / Sony DVD recorder

You need to buy a splitter in order to put one to the DVD recorder and one to the tv from the decoder. You should be able to get one at the Local Radio Shack or other electronics store.

If you need help locating a store, please let me know

Otherwise Thank you for using Fixya and Have a Good Day!

The wiring has snapped from the mic to the xlr socket on the microphone is there somewhere i can get a diagram to fix it? the mic is a se electronic z3300a

It uses a standard balanced XLR wiring which is 1= ground/shield, 2= (+ve) hot and 3 is (-ve) cold. Do not bridge pins 1 and 3 as this mike uses phantom power. Please let me know if this helps.

I have a 96 grand prix se 96 3100 Sfi V6 when i start the car it dies on rare occansions and id like to know why / and if it is safe to put fuel injector cleaner in my car to see if it helps the issue

The cleaner will not hurt anything. Your motor will just burn it up like fuel. I use the STP (red bottle) because it says on the bottle that it gets rid of condensation in the fuel tank. Condensation (water) does form and collects in the bottom of the gas tank. I use the fuel treatment 3 or 4 times a year and I think it really works. I have a 2001 Monte Carlo that I bought new and it has 177000 miles and it gets 34.5 mpg highway.I have been useing the fuel treatment from the beginning. It has the 3400 V-6.Its basically the same engine you have.
Also you must install a new fuel filter every 30000 miles. The tanks at the gas stations are filthy.
Also check the condition of your air filter and replace at 20000 max.
Transmission filter and oil at each 50-60000 miles.
I hope this info helps you.

Recently, i;ve been trying to record tv programs on my Panasonic DVD Video Recorder DMR-E50, as i have done so for many years. However, lately, whenever i program it to record a tv program using the timer...

Hi Leah,

Good description and good job in narrowing down the problem. The lens is the remaining common denominator.

You need to get a CD/DVD lens cleaner. It should have a disk and a bottle of cleaning solution. They are available in the electronics dept of most chain stores.

A couple drops of cleaning solution on the feathery cleaning element attached to the disk, insert the disk into the machine and hit play. Takes just a couple seconds.

Best regards

Frequency settings on se2200a

It is a pad..which is a switch that will 'reduce' sound level or volume which in a nutshell is useful for recording loud instruments..So switch to -10 db if placing the mic fairly close to say loud drum or horns..etc..
