Adjust the Recording level

Double click on the Speaker in the Icon Tray under the clock
Select the microphone. Make sure is it not muted
If you have an Advance Button at the bottom Click it.
Add +20dB boost (increases pickup level)
If no advanced button. Click OPTIONS (on top)
Then Properties, then select RECORDING
from there you can check the +20dB boost.

Also verify that is the correct type mic- If it is from a headset you should be good to go.

No, you'll have to buy a microphone and plug it into the microphone jack on the chassis.

If you buy a webcam, many have a built-in microphone in the webcam.

Check the microphone is not muted (this is the default to stop feedback).
Use the start button, then pick control panel.

Microphone does not pick up any sound

Your mike requires a 48 volt phantom power supply which your preamp should be supplying. The most commonly overlooked problem is the cable. It must be wired for a balanced connection for phantom power to work correctly. 1=ground/shield, 2=hot(ve) and 3=cold(ve). None of these connections should be bridged to another and need to be kept separate to maintain a balanced connection. You will need to eliminate the preamp and mike cable as sources of the problem in order to determine if the mike is working correctly. You need to test this combination with a volt /ohm meter. If you don't know how to do this you should take it to the dealer you bought it from for testing or advice.

Behringer B-1 Will Not Pick Up Anything

The microphone needs a phantom power supply to work. In your case you need a 48volt phantom power supply. Some mixers have this feature built in.The Micropower PS400 by Behringer would probably be a good choice.
