I’m new to the forum and new to home recording. Mostly I’ve used Audacity as a medium to burn old tapes and records onto CDs.
I just picked up a mic and the Behringer FCA202 firewire to begin recording my own music–this is attached via a USB. However, the input from the mic is very quiet…in fact I have to raise my voice to get Audacity to recognize it. After reading a post on the forum I tried Microsoft’s recording device and the input is extremely quiet there as well…
When I use one of those cheap line in/line out mics that plug directly into the computer there is no problem. Does anyone have experience with this?
