That's probably the one part of this you don't have to worry about. It's very common to buy a pre-packaged 25 foot XLR cable, and you can plug them into each other for even longer runs. They are designed to do that.I am using an XLR cable (the one that came with the Rode) to connect the Solo and the Rode mic. It seems rather long. Is there a different XLR you recommend other than the one it came with?
It's nearly 100% certain this is a USB issue.
This light?where the solo seemed to be kind of coming in and out, meaning the green light was sort of blinking
Actually, that's good news. That doesn't indicate an easy fix, but that light is USB Quality Assurance. So the Solo thinks something is off. That makes two of us.
I like that device that plugs into the wall. That means the 5 volts going up to run the Solo is coming from a stable wall power supply and not the Mac and its adapters. I know these adapters all claim to support multiple connections and devices, but you in particular should not be plugging anything else in.
The Solo has a USB-C??? Which Solo did you get?I also bought a USB-C to USB-C to plug the solo directly into my computer
I'm lost. If the Solo and the Mac are both USB-C, didn't that work the first time you just plugged them together??
