    Really helpful video. I thought my mic was broken but all along it was just my laptop isn’t powerful enough to power my microphone.

  2. x2u is not that a good interface if you want a studio quality sound recording…noise is too high especially that hissing sound and convertion is below standard…only at 16bit/44.1 khz…standard should be 24bit/48-96khz…

  3. Yes, you just have to record the audio seperatly I think. Or your computer will reconize it as a microphone, then you don’t have to.

  4. I’ve seen, in many cases, where the cables sending the signal from the USB port to the motherboard inside the computer, are directly next to a fan or some other noisy part of the computer. This can cause buzzing or noise. Try a different USB port.

  5. Can I use this for flip cam jstyles? I’m thinking

    Shot gun to xlr to usb to flip usb, it all connects, but Will it work? Hmm…ill head to best buy tomorrow

  6. No idea, perhaps try contacting Shure and asking them for advice… The only think I’ve read is that if you use a shorter USB cable it may help. Or maybe the device is faulty…

  7. hi! i have the x2u with an sm57 and i get a LOT of noise while recording with my laptop but nothing when i monitor it. is the noise coming from my soundcard? how can i reduce it?

  8. Sounds like you know your stuff. That’s great. We need more people like you in the world. How long have you been doing this?

    One Youtube demonstrator said up to 12 – twelve systems could be used at once. Did he get it wrong?
