  • Connect your headphones directly to the computer instead of to the microphone to minimize any echo.


  • The LED on the mic's handle flashes red when the mic is overloaded or the sound is clipping.
    • If it is clipping, move the mic further away from the person speaking.
  • If you cannot be heard in the Studio, check the physical on/off switch on the mic's handle.
    • The output buttons near the mic's base only control the headphone output volume.
  • Troubleshooting: Microphone not recognized
