are you using an interface? Your level will be always be lower if you are going straight in. Your interface and mixer will help you get the correct level in to your system before recording and also shaping the sound after the recording.You just need to get more gain up in there
The reason it is not being picked up by your PC is because the NT1A is a condenser microphone and it requires an audio interface that can supply phantom power (48V) to get it powered up. Without phantom power, the NT1A won't work. You many need to buy an external audio interface that provides phantom power to use the mic. Hope that helps.
Assuming your preamp, cables, or room, aren't at fault, then your NT1-A is suffering from typical component failure and will need service. Even new mics of this type can be at the end of their useful lives, due to the cheap components used.
Your Rode NT1-A mic is a very good microphone, specially for vocal recordings, but as most of the proffesional microphones needs a power supply. To be more spesific when you use your NT1-A with an audio console or a mixer, the microphone preamplifier provide at the mocrophone 48Volts for it to work. In order to use NT1-A with the computer you can:
either you have to connect the mic with a mixer or a console and the audio output (line out) from the console to your computer's line in.
or you have to buy a "phantom power supply for microphones" in order to use this one between your pc and the NT1-A. In that case you will connect at the mic in of the computer.
Personally I suggest the first solution since the pc's mic pre-amplifier in not as good as a deticated mic preamplifier from a mixer or a console. I have to notice that if your 're about to buy a mixer for that use remember to ask for one with phantom power supply for the mic (or mics). In case of a clarificationdon't hesitate to post.
Disagree with previous post. The GTrack is designed to record vocals and a mono insrtument at the same time. That's its main selling point. It should also allow monitoring of both the vocals and guitar alongside the playback from the computer. In your computer's Control Panel, go to sound preferences, select the usb microphone and click on advanced tab. It is likely yours is set up to record 1 channel at CD quality - this is how many ship for some reason. Set it to 2 Channels CD quality. In Sonar, set your track input as USB Left for the vocals, and USB Right for your guitar.
