When I plug an external microphone in the side-mini jack I have extremely low to zero recording on the tape. The audio levels hardly move. I tried all sorts of microphones that worked just fine yesterday. I was trying to install a clip-on mic and the audio technitian i visited wired the mic through a console to boost its signal. I don't know whether that "boosting" "burned" something inside. The on-board mic works just fine. Thank you. If I install the MA300 adaptor will I still need the mic- mini-jack?
