Go check out these pictures, and there is some good info about micing up your drums. :) Recording it is then a case of getting levels good for a start by worling your way around the kit one drum at a time setting the level for that drum. a bit of nice reverb in the mix and out come you drums.... whoooohhooooo

SOURCE: Popping and fading of sound

The "popping" sound could be electricity jumping from one place to another.An internal SHORT in a transistor, an internal OPEN in a resistor.Intermittent [sometimes it does,sometimes it dose not] arcing electronic parts.
Dust [metal filings,very fine hair that burns like a fuse] & dirt [anything metal], arcing (shorted) capacitors.Bad connections on ANY ground connector.
Possible:: your surround sound MASKED the popping sounds by acting like a FILTER.Which lets me to think that your problem is in the audio section.

SOURCE: Logitech Communicate STX videos plays back static!

Normal 0 Two things can cause static.
First, If you have your speakers turned up to high it will give you feedback causing distortion and static. I recommend using a headset when videoing.
Second reason is, if you are using a laptop and have added an external microphone between the two it will cause distortion and static.
Not knowing the configuration of your computer makes it harder to analyze the problem.
So hope this is of some help. Bud

SOURCE: The audio kept cutting in and out while using the

The unit is SUBJECT to radio interference from other systems in the area such as high power taxicab radios for example and other services. 30 seconds might be about the time for a radio transmission. The system, while being interfered with, likely will NOT generate audible sounds and due to the squelch algorithm may MUTE the system.
Sorry, but you are a SECONDARY user per FCC definition and they are licensed and you are sharing bandwidth. You cannot interfere with them, but they can interfere with you. You should probablly get a UHF system that has less chance of interference. While recording, frankly I would be wired, not wireless. I am both an electrical engineer nd a HAM so I am aware of these problems.

How to connect a samson s mix 5 channel mixer

It depends on what you are trying to connect. The XLR would be a professional type microphone, it does not have phantom so a condenser mic will not work. The other inputs should match your stereo equipment. The output goes to your amp.
The Samson S-Mix is a miniature, rugged 5-channel audio mixer with 4-line inputs and a single XLR microphone input. The line inputs are comprised of two 1/4" phone and stereo RCA phono connections. Each input channel has a rotary volume control and the outputs include stereo RCA phono connectors and 1/4" TRS phone headphone output. The S-Mix is powered with an 18 volt AC adapter.

Dropped mixer about 400 mm from speaker to floorsound comes up to headphones output but not to main mix socket

Open unit. 1. Look for cables knocked off. 2. Using bright light look for circuit board cracks and broken solder. 3. Look for broken pots, especially the main slider. All of these problems are repairable by competent electronics tech.

When i play my acoustic guitat through the Samson C03U mic, it plays back all fuzzy.. :S

Hi there,

This could be caused by a faulty cable or a fault on one of the ends of the cable. Open each side of the cable, the jack should screw off. Once it is open check to make sure that both of the wires are connected firmly. If they're not, you will need to solder them on properly and if they are, then this is not the problem.

This could be a due to the settings on your speaker or the mixer you are using. On the speaker, check that the low's mid's and high's are set correctly and then check the mixer to see if the line in from the guitar is set correctly and check that the line out is set correctly. If all of this is fine then it could be due to your guitar DI.

Check that your DI is set correctly,e.g. Make sure that the DI is not set to run a link between both lines, it should be set as single.

Thank you for using FixYa! Have a nice day and please remember to rate this solution.

Warm regards,

After i record my voice with the microphone, it comes out 1 side

The Samson C01U records in mono, not stereo. This is why you hear sound coming only out of one (the left) channel.
