Question about Audio Technica Audio-Technica MB 4k/c Microphone
Is it possible to hook this mic up to a computer mic input (Compaq Pressario desk top) without going through a mixer, cable only? i am cuurrently going through a fostex mr8 and i have to pretty much swallow the mic to get a good signal from the mr8 output, the mic however seems to have a very good output. thanks - jim keith
As long as the microphone is getting power (via a seperate phantom power unit, or using batteries, the MB 4k can use AA) you should be able to plug into a computer with no trouble, as long as a couple other things are set. You'll need two things in addition to your mic and battery.
1) You need an adapter to go from XLR to 1/8". Go to www.sweetwater.com and search for "XLR to 1/8". They are around $10.
2) Your computer must have a "mic" level input. It is probably a red connector. If your computer only has a "line" level input (probably blue), then you will have to use the mixer, or some in between unit to up the output of the mic to line level.
Not sure why your mr8 is outputting so low. Make sure you have phantom power turned on.
Best of luck!
