Question about Rode NT1A Professional Microphone
I have a brand new Rode NT1A that i'm having trouble getting a recording signal with. Even with Phantom power on and levels up crazy high it won't pick up a vocal, or very little. If I tap the mic head it spikes sharply in the sequencer yet it won't pick up any spoken sound. I'm hoping there is a simple answer, any help appreciated.
I bought a nt-1a a while back never got it to work, was planning to sell on ebay thought id best get it to work first. Had same problems as you.... it seems the nt-1a requires absoulte silence (no ambient noise) i hid it under my doona and it picks up me singing from 4 metres away... where i have never got it to work before.... my suggestion either make an enclosure where there is no ambient noise (as in a recording booth at a studio) or simply shove it under some blankets and put up with a slightly muffled sound.... might be worth trying closing windows, covering your computer and other devices.... hope this works for you.... did for me.

I have the same problem, haven't found the solution...
but you might wanna make sure that the preamp has the 48v phantom power on...

Try cleaning your plugs before inserting them into the machine. a dry clothe will do nicely. polishing the plug heads in a twisting motion.
