Samson G-Track Pro USB microphone's red LED is flashing

When the G-Track Pro's red LED is flashing, there are two possible causes:

  1. The input level is too high and is clipping/distorted. If this is the problem, it will only flash briefly on loud peaks, and if you turn down the mic gain or instrument gain, the LED will stop flashing.
  2. The input and output sample rates are mismatched. If this is the problem, the red LED will flash rapidly all the time, and will not go away even if you turn down all the knobs.
To fix problem 2, you need to set the recording and playback rates to the same value.

(Problem 2 will only happen on Windows, Linux, or Android, not on macOS or iOS, because these operating systems never request more than one sample rate at a time.)

You need to select Samson C03U as the Default Device. Do not select Realtek. Realtek is the sound card that's built into the computer.

As with all recording levels it's best to keep them to a max of 0 VU on the level meter. Some say an odd peak into the red or above 0 VU is acceptable, but it should not go to high. Sett it on the loudest part of what you are going to record, then the rest of the time should be OK. Try some loud music first if it's all speech. That should set the right level for the speech. It is possible to increase the audio level on Audacity afterwards anyway.

Check and replace the damaged component/s at its audio output section circuit board. If needy, replace this board as card basis. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. Pull up older posts. Search the site by type in the "brand name" to your device; in the "Search box at the top right of the display window of the Homepage" to get gathered related posts.

Look at the circuit with a relay.

How to increase recording level for Samson C01U microphone

If your recordings are too quiet, increase the gain of the microphone. In Windows:

  1. Open Recording devices (easiest way to get there is right-click on the speaker icon near the clock and select "Recording devices")
  2. Plug in USB mic It will appear by name under the Recording tab, with a level meter next to it.
  3. Right-click on that microphone (not the Realtek/etc. built-in sound card) and click Properties
  4. In the Microphone Properties window (not Speakers Properties), go to the Levels tab. The slider that says "Microphone" next to it adjusts the internal gain of the mic.
  5. Make sure the speaker next to it is un-muted.
  6. Talk or play into the microphone at a loud volume.
  7. While watching the level meter in the other window, move the slider to the right, until the level meter is almost reaching the top.
  8. Press Ok
  9. Tap lightly on the mic, the Recording devices level meter should be lighting up almost to the top.

You can also adjust the level directly from some audio software. In Audacity, for example:

  1. Run Audacity
  2. Click Edit menu ? Preferences...
  3. Click Devices
  4. In the Recording box, there's a drop-down menu, click it and select the USB microphone as the recording device.
  5. Press Ok
  6. To see Audacity's level meter without recording, press Pause http://www.fixya.comwrite_tip-d0vcjmxs03lzv3cifcn42mqj-1-5.png and then Record http://www.fixya.comwrite_tip-d0vcjmxs03lzv3cifcn42mqj-1-9.png
  7. Talk or play into the microphone at a loud volume.
  8. While watching the level meter, adjust the Recording Volume slider until it almost reaches the top
  9. Un-press Pause to start recording.

i would guess a cap blew, and overheated the power transformer, should cost about $150 to fix, and the speaker is worth maybe $2-300, depending on the model

You should be able to read the value of the capacitor on the side

Can you confirm if it is Flat Panel TV from Samsung ? because I find an Epson and Buick

Try a different mic to see if problem follows. If yes then it is a setting. If not then the mic is bad and needs to be sent to mfg or get a new one.

Hi, maybe your audio source is providing signal on left channel only, have you tried a different audio source?

You have to slide the switch on the front of the mic to the Mono position. You're monitoring in Stereo mode, which is only for when you plug a stereo cable into the input jack of the mic.

When using the microphone itself, always put the Monitoring Switch in Mono mode.0a08a992-b4ca-4d4e-af74-53f7136ceeb0.jpg

When any electrical item doesn't work after being moved, suspect some kind of physical cause. Such as a bad soldering joint or other damage inside caused by an unknown bang or jolt during the move. Perhaps even an alien object inside like a metal pin etc.
