I don’t really know if that fits in here, but i have a problem with my Samson G-Track: Whenever I put in my headphones in the audio interface to hear myself when speaking, the right side is quieter than the left side. I haven’t used the mic a while, but before it was perfectly fine. I tried to clean the inputs and also checked it with another computer. Problem still remains.
I apologize for my english!
You mean like this:
I don’t remember having trouble with that. Yes, the microphone is mono, but I’m pretty sure the microphone feeds both sides of the headphone.
Clean the headphone plug with alcohol or unflavored vodka (same thing) and paper towels (not tissues). Plug the headphone in and out several times.
Do the headphones work anywhere else like your personal Music Player? It wouldn’t do to blame the microphone when the headphones are broken.
Stupid obvious question:
Have you tried the headphones on another mono source, or have you tried other headphones on the mic?
First of all thanks for the fast replies!
The picture is exactly what i mean!
I’m going to try your method with the alcohol as soon as i get a bottle
My headphones are okay, i tried them on my laptop, smartphone and mp3player. I also used other pairs of in-ears to be sure, everthings fine with them!
I really didn’t do anything with the G-track, it’s just hasn’t been used for ~3 weeks.
But you’re sure it used to work?
Yes, it is supposed to work. This is from the Sweetwater web page.
Stereo headphone output with no latency monitoring and level control
Yeah the monitoring was completely fine, i could hear music and myself speaking perfectly through both ears. I really don’t know what could happened, it has never been dropped or something like that.
Thanks in advance!
You’re sure it’s plugged all the way in? You can get channel dropouts if the plug isn’t firmly seated.
Yeah i pushed it all the way in, nothing is loose.
Thanks in advance!
Then given the Venn diagram so far, the microphone is broken.
Okay i’m just so confused about how it’s malfunctionating after a few weeks of no usage. I’ll try the alcohol cleaning method you mentioned! I’ll be reporting the results after it, but thanks for the quick help, i really appreciate it!
While equipment failure generally follows some activity like “I used it last week and it stopped working,” it doesn’t have to be. Failures are not scheduled events.
According to the Venn diagram, the microphone is working as a microphone (it is, right?) the headphones are working as headphones connected to different things and the computer is working. That leaves the headphone connection inside the microphone.
Is the headphone sound in real time? Is there a delay between the time you sing and the time it comes to your headphones unbalanced?
I’m sorry I answered so late, i was on a business trip ! I tried the method with alcohol, didn’t worked.
The microphone is working fine as mic. There is no delay between speaking and hearing!
Did you keep the microphone receipts?
I bought it from Thomann ~3-6 Months ago, i guess i’ll use the 3 years warranty they provide!
I’m sorry that i bothered you with my problems, i really appreciate it that you helped me out !
It’s not a problem. It can be difficult to troubleshoot complicated computer systems.
