Samson co1u recording issue

Basically...when I record.....it only records into one side of the speakers..for example....all the sound of my voice recording comes out the left speakers...but is very quiet out of the right..it doesn't seem to change when I hold the mic different ways...Any suggestions as to why this would be happening?...Some weird setting I need to change maybe...or the way I'm using the samson to record?

any help would be appreciated..thanks

    It only plays through the right speacker and there is this horrible annoying ticking noise. Its not so bad when I talk but when my guitar is being recorded its ticking non-stop. HELP ME

    It only records the left side... It's really annoying because I have to pan it in Garageband and Logic Pro and it doesn't sound as good.

    Yes, I use a Mac. Will this make a difference?

You first 3 people are idiots... maybe if you had worked with the hardware you would know how the mic works because its obvious you don't. The 4th person is correct because this is exactly how i use the mic and it captures sound in stereo format beautiful when set up rite. Using it in mono, whether use keep on one channel or two drastically reduces the crisp sound that this mic can record.

As explained by the honourable people before me, this Mic is not Stereo.
Make sure you create a MONO track when recording vocals in your Nuendo/Ableton Live/Cubase with your Samson and when at play back, it should come out from both speakers equally.

Hi FaSho

The microphone is not a stereo device, so the fact that it is recording OK on one channel actually confirms that it is operating OK. I would look to the settings in your recording software that is panned to one side. Or to the software you are using for playback to be sure that it is not panned(balance control) to one side. Hope this helps. If not, get back to me and we can get into it further

regards
Graeme

Microphones are not stereo! There's only one channel because there's only one mic.

Don't touch the pan control. You should only be recording from the left channel and then playing it back in stereo to hear the same thing in both speakers. When you set up the mic for recording, choose "mono mode" or "left channel only".

Whats the correct setup for home recording on the samson L2400 mixing console


To avoid feeback whilst recording, make sure all speakers and monitors are turned off while you record. Otherwise the microphone will pick up both the sound of your voice from your mouth as well as the sound of your voice coming out of the speakers, causing an endless loop of nasty feedback! So just make sure speakers (incl. computer speakers if those are what you are using to listen) are muted whilst recording!

Hi i have connected the Samson G-track with my macbook. also i using Nicecast & Traktor for radio broadcasting. when i talk from Samson G Track my voice comes only from left speaker. I try the...


This is because the G Track's Mic signal is on the Left channel and the Instrument signal is on the Right channel. You are making a stereo recording when you should be making 2 mono recordings. Does Nicecast have an option to set the track to mono Left channel? Traktor should, but I haven't used it so I can't tell you where the option is. There's probably a Track Input drop-down or something like that.

CAN I TRANSFER MY RECORDING FROM MY ICD-B20 TO MY COMPUTER?


I assume this voice recorder doesn't have a place to attach a USB. If not, you can always plug the speaker output into a computer's microphone input and re-record the sound with software in the computer, like Microsoft Sound Recorder.

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

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.

Do you mean voice or video recording......

whichever it is your problem maybe because of the fact that some players have only a certain limt of space alloted for recording.for example:in a normal 1 gb player with voice recording function only about 28 hrs(approx. 128 MB ) of voice can be recorded....even if there is plenty of space left in the player the player will not record voice once the full 28 hrs has been used................This recording facility can be reused by deleting the old recorded files.....

Hope it helps

Sound coming through computer speakers instead of through fast track.


Check your audio settings to make sure that it's going to the right driver. goto: start -> control panel -> sound and audio devices out of the 5 tabs, you'll want to pay attention to 2 of them, these are the "audio" and "voice" tabs. Make sure that your speakers on are the external sound system's drivers and not your internal sound card. (Basically, make your sound playback the same as your sound recording)
