Audacity version 2.1.0 running with Windows 10 on a Dell “all in one.”
I have a Rode microphone running to a Centrance Micport Pro, running to a USB port on my computer.
I appear to have a problem getting the recording volume up to -6 or -3. Recorded volume generally hangs around -39 to -30.
My toolbar is set at “MME”, “Microsoft Sound Mapper - Input,” 2(stereo) Recording channel", Microsoft Sound Mapper-Output."

The [u]Recording Device[/u] should say “USB something”. And, the microphone is not stereo… Plug-in the USB device before starting Audacity.
I assume the gain control is cranked-up on the USB device?
Are you speaking or singing, or recording something else? How far are you from the mic?
And I assume that’s a “studio style” directional side-address mic? Make sure you are talking/singing into the front side (not the end or the back).
Thanks for the info. I have a USB input from the Mic, which I thought was to be set at stereo. I’m not sure of the “sides” for the Mic. Right now it’s vertical & I’m speaking into one of the larger sides!! Could be the back.
Which one? The RØDE Podcaster is an end-address microphone (the mic should point towards your mouth). Some of their others are side-address mics.
