Help with new mic and setting correctly with my 4track

    i picked up a condener mic, the behringer B-2 pro. i hooked everything up and when i turn my 4track machine on, the mic has a loud hum, like it's 'presence' and i can't figure out how to turn the humming sound down without adjusting the volume which the mic takes in itself. if i turn the input level down, the humming goes away but so does the sound level - i record and nothing is heard. i'm not sure what to adjust so the humming goes away but the overall sound level, with which to record, remains.

    Hmmm, you don't mention what type of four track you are using ... Does it provide phantom power for the mic? Is the phantom power for that channel turned on?

    i bought the phantom power pack, it's hooked up correctly and all. as far as the four track it's a boss br-532. i'm not sure if that will help you at all? i mean the mic works, i know it's hooked up right. it's just that humming i can't get to go away

    If you can try the mic on a different mixer or recorder ... see if it still makes noise . I fit does, return it to the store and exchange it for a new one. Right now just do what you can to try to isolate the problem and troubleshoot what the issue is..
