SOURCE: How to connect XLR plug to Combi-Connector socket

You need a D.I. (direct interface) box. Most have XLR to 1/4" . You have to go from the 1/4" to your size jack. Remember your taking a low impedence device to a high impedence input thats why you need a D.I. you just can't make a cable to do that. Also I think you mean a 3.5mm jack.

Pin 1= ground/shield, Pin 2= hot(+ve), Pin 3= cold(-ve). Just remember if you make a cord like this you can expect some signal loss.

That is the first thing to check. They are most likely inside the circuit board. Remember to replace them with the same voltage and amperage ratings.

SOURCE: Hi, I bought the Shure Beta

That will not work. The Beta 87H/C already has a preamp built into it. That preamp requires phantom power. The MX1BP is another preamp, so you would not need it, due to the preamp that is built in.

If you do not have phantom power available, then purchase an external phantom power supply.

I have recently bought an AKG Perception 120 microphone and plan on recording through GarageBand on my Macbook Pro, but no sound is coming through. please help!


You say you have a XLR to USB adapter....so the version of the 120 you have is the regular XLR version, right? Well if it is, it needs what's called "phantom power" to work. It looks like they have a straight USB version of this mic, and that's what you should have gotten if you didn't want to use anything else. If you still want to use this mic as is, I would recommend a Focusrite Scarlett 2i2. I have one and it's great. I do have a pc though and I'm not sure about Mac. But it's a usb powered preamp that gives you two mic pre's along with headphone amp, and a volume control for your speakers and has phantom power built in. Great unit and around $120. NFI.

C1 not working


Sounds like your Phantom power supply may be defective. To be safe, 1st try moving AC plug for Phantom supply to another outlet as sometimes "sharing grounds" can be a problem. If this doesn't help, try using another phantom power source ...many PA mixers have built-in phantom power. If the buzz disappears with a new one, it will be a filtering issue (capacitors) with the old phantom supply.

I just bought the GXL2200 CAD microphone without the cabels,(thought they would've came with), what kind of cable do i need?


As with most microphones, these mics use XLR cables. You can get them online or in a music store in many different lengths. What you need is XLR male to XLR female, though most of the consumer-level stores will probably just call them "mic cables." Note that the thing you're plugging into will need to have an XLR input, and will need to provide phantom power in order for that mic to work.

No sound from mxl 990 condenser mic


From the Micropower PS400 product description it states:

"routes the microphone signal to a mixer or a microphone preamplifier."

• these is just a phantom power supply.


One reason your former setup is OK , is that

tascam m-50 is a mixer preamplifier.

• phantom power supply is just a part of the mic preamp of the mixer

to power up your mxl 990 condenser mic


• What you may need is something like these:

X2u XLR to USB Signal Adapter

What is the best way to run the mic on desktop


Your condensor mic requires special electrical handling usually reserved for proffesional audio equipment, not a PC. You will need two pieces of equipment, a short XLR cable and an adapter cable.
1) Behringer PS400 Ultra-Compact Phantom Power Supply.
This will supply the mic with necessary Phantom Power.
2) Rapco Horizon ISOBLOX Transformer Isolation 1:1 BLOX Device
This will isolate the Phantom Power from your computer, allowing it to work as necessary.
The adaptor connector cable you need will be a female XLR (with pins 1 and 3 shorted, pin 2 hot), through a cable connect to a 1/8" mini plug. They connect in that order with a short XLR cable between 1) and 2). .

Does the Behringer xm8500 work on it's own, or do I have to hook it up to something? My daughter wants a microphone she can sing into.


All microphones have to be hooked to an amplifier to work. The socket at the bottom with the 3 pins in it is called an XLR jack. You need to plug an XLR cord into that and then plug it into an amp that has an XLR or 1/4 inch microphone input (using an adapter).

If she just wants it for looks, then no, you don't need to plug it in.

Hi, I bought the Shure Beta 98H/C phantom powered clip on mic and was told(and read online) I could use the MX1BP as a battery preamp for the microphone when phantom power was not available. So looking at...


That will not work. The Beta 87H/C already has a preamp built into it. That preamp requires phantom power. The MX1BP is another preamp, so you would not need it, due to the preamp that is built in.

How to make my co3 mic work


You will need a pre amp that supplies whats called phantom power which is power that feeds the mic .. This will come from either mixers [small cheap ones..but check it has XLR mic input with phantom power] or from a stand alone pre amp or audio interfaces with built in inputs for mics with phantom power.. Also you will need an XLR mic lead..Buy a good one with neutrik plugs or similar..

My akg perception 200 is not responding


Have you tried using a another XLR cable..,or are the other mics phantom powered condensers..ie try to locate if its a mic problem or the cable..2 other points are 1 - XLR leads for phantom mics need to be XLR to XLR male to Female plugs[ends] 2- is that often an XLR to XLR cable will be not soldered or wired right,so that the power [phantom power is not getting to the mic] so ensure you have a proper cable for that job...Sorry i can't be more specific but from reading your problem all these issues come to mind..If you have ruled all these things out,then it could be the capsule or loose joint or component in the mic which means contact AKG,pro audio services or find a DIY mic person to help..G luck!!
