Question about Rode NTG-1 Professional Microphone

Open Question

Poor Sound Quality and Interference

Our company just bought a RODE NTG-1 microphone. We supply power to the microphone through a phantom power supply box. The sound quality is not what it should be. Does this have anything to do with how long the cable is? Also we are having problems with interference. Any suggestions?

SOURCE: NT1A no signal in sequencer

try cleaning your plugs before inserting them into the machine. a dry clothe will do nicely. polishing the plug heads in a twisting motion.

SOURCE: I'm really at my wits end with my Rode NT1 A

If you are satisfied with Shure products I would recommend that you check out their condenser microphones.All condensers are more fragile than other microphones. Get someone to look at your Rode first in case it is not trashed and can be fixed as they are good mikes. AKG is another brand I would recommend.

SOURCE: connection problem with rode ntg-2

If you look at the side of the microphone at that end there should be a small hole. Using long nose pliers grasp one of the pins and pull the jack all the way out to make sure that no wires have broken loose. Look on the side of this (plastic?) piece and you will notice a small screw with a slot in it. Using the pliers again, insert the piece back into the microphone gently and line the screw up with the hole. There should be only one way to do this as the piece has a protrusion that guides it down a slot in the microphone. Once the screw is lined up use a small enough flat blade screw driver to fit the hole. Screw the screw out, Yes Out. What this does is secure thje plug in place and provide a ground to the microphone. Please let me know how you make out.

The screws are almost positively METRIC. Find a vendor that sells metric screw products in your area.

SOURCE: I plug my rode ntg-2 into the computer and record

This mic needs phantom power to operate. Best bet, go and buy a USB mic pre, such as a M-Audio product.

This mic, I believe also runs on a battery, when phantom power is not available...so check the battery.

Or, simply, your record levels are set too low.

Rode NT1A: i got an adapter so i can input it in the mic input the pc says an audio device has been put in but i cant find it anywhere! please help me i also have an Acer Z5710

The reason it is not being picked up by your PC is because the NT1A is a condenser microphone and it requires an audio interface that can supply phantom power (48V) to get it powered up. Without phantom power, the NT1A won't work. You many need to buy an external audio interface that provides phantom power to use the mic. Hope that helps.

No sound being picked up when connected, may be as I am using a xlr to usb connection and the power is coming off a laptop , how would I fix this? Thanks

The Rode NT1A requires phantom power of 24-48volts DC. The USB socket on your laptop will only supply 4.5volts.
The solution will be to buy a separate power supply or to connect it to your computer through a mixer that includes a phantom power supply option.

Rode NTG 2

You'll want to connect it to any mic input using either an XLR cable, or an adaptor cable or transformer appropriate for your input, e.g., 1/4" or 3.5mm.

Works for a few seconds then cuts out

After trying a known good cable, I would try it on another preamp (prefferably a medium or high quality one) with a known good phantom power supply and test it with that. Or just go to your local Guitar Center and ask the associate there to test it for you. They will be happy to oblige.

Rode NT2 got Phantom!

Well... Rode NT2's are condenser mic's that require phantom power to work. So the phantom switch should be on. When you turn phantom power on you usually hear a bump sound (through the amplifier). In this case, nothing is broken.
Your picture is of a Rode Videomic (not an NT2) which is a stereo mic for video cameras. If you had some kind of stereo mini to (single) XLR adaptor, and put phantom power through it, the mic would probably be damaged. But maybe not... just try again without phantom power to see. a stereo mic won't work very well with the Mbox Mini because it only has one mic preamp.

Rode NT2-A

No. This is an analog microphone that requires no drivers. Check that another microphone works into the same input (and check that the phantom power supplied at the input meets the NT-2A specs).
