Hello, I’m beginning my personal little crusade in the Ribbon Mic arena.
To start, I’ve created an Instructable, to upgrade an MXL 990 condenser mic with a ribbon element from http://www.diyribbonmic.com/parts
I created some 3D printed parts to hold the ribbon element and transformer.
Last week, I bought an MXL 990 with a shockmount, a Blue Icicle, and a 25 ft. long XLR cable. I have the Microphone plugged into to XLR cable > Blue Icicle > Dell Inspiron N5110. It says that it's installing software, but when it's done, it says "There is a problem with the driver USB Multi-Channel Audio Device.
I just received my MXL 990 condenser mic from Musicians Friend today and everything looked fine when I unboxed so I went ahead and hooked it up to my mixer. I use a Yamaha MW12CX USB mixer that provides phantom power but I can't get anything to record through my MXL 990. I've never used a mic that requires phantom power so I'm not sure if I'm doing something wrong.
its good to be in this forums lots of knowledgeable sh*t
To my problem, i bought a MXl 990 and a Blue icicle
This is how its setup
Mxl 990 condenser mic > XLR cable > Blue icicle > USb wire > Pc ( windows 7 )
I checked everywhere and it says icicle is a plug and play device, so why am i having problem ?
