Question about Rode NT1A Professional Microphone
I've had this for about 5 years. Very good performance up until about 6 months ago when it began to crackle, ,break up, and cut out. My question:
Is it worth repairing (out of warranty) or is there an easy fix?
SOURCE: I'm buying a Rode NT1A,
Hi, what else do you do think you will need? I don't think you will need any other thing except that before you use the mic, the
switch for the phantom power on the microphone is to be activated .Without the phantom being activated, the mic will not work.
It can only be activated with a mixer console that has a phantom activation on it. After connecting the mic to the mixer,activate the phantom power on the mixer and switch on the phantom power on the mic,and problem solved.
Note: Mic will not work if no phantom activated on the mixer.
That all you will need .
Thanks for using fixya....

SOURCE: Rode NT1A: i got an adapter
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.

the process of elimation will help you to solve your issue. first plug the rode nt1 (great mic by the way), into a good pa head or something you know works, of course you will need to have a pa that gives you phantom power. if the mic works then move on to the preamp. try it in the pa too, if it works move on to the m-audiophle and plug a line level signal into it (a cd player or mp3 player for instance) it this works then you have determined that everything works and you don't actully have a problem other than switching, Also try plugging your mic into the M-audiophle directly and see if thaat works ( don't know if that provides the 48 volts, if it doesn't than you will have to get a phantom supply to plug into first. good luck
