Question about CAD Microphones GXL1200 Professional Microphone
Its plugged in to my laptop thru an usb and im using audacity
John is correct. Your laptop does not supply the 48 volts 'phantom power' that the microphone needs to work. You have two options: 1) buy a "Phantom Power Supply" from someplace such as Amazon.com or 2) Buy a USB Preamp that plugs into your laptop and the preamp will supply the 48 volts for the microphone. I use an M-Audio preamp for mine. There are lots of different models of preamps to choose from. Just make sure the description says it is able to supply 'phantom power'.

There is no way to directly connect this mic via USB. It requires a phantom power source, through an XLR mic cable.
