i was recording a song with my singer with my condensor mic (an AKG perception 200) and it worked fantastically when we started. As we were recording through our songs the mic got wuieter and quieter. now it barely picks up anything. Any ideas? We didnt use a pop filter so im thinking maybe its clogged? Is there any way i can fix this without going to a professional?

Is your phantom power on? Also, a pop filter is to keep 'p' noises from making the signal peak, not keep the mic clean.

condensor mics dont have batteries do they? and the phantom power is on. Even when i tried it out 2 weeks after it was the same. Our vocalist did cup the mic for a song so maybe it got filled with spit? We do deathcore (i know, another deathcore band lol) so theres alot of saliva flying around. I cant find any way to open it up. And the mic is technically me friends, so i would like to get it working again =D

im about 99.99% positive it doesnt, i looked up every review and everything and none say anything about batteries, they all say its run just on phantom power? anyone else have any ideas? is it possible to clog a condensor mic?
