I'm trying to record some songs with my laptop.
Here's what I'm doing:
Shure PG57/PG58 ---> XLR to 1/4 in. plug adapter ---> 1/4 in. plug to 3.5 mm. plug adapter (I know; they didn't have the direct one) ---> laptop mic input.
But the result is BARELY audible despite the fact that I'm practically EATING the fucking mic.
So, I'm fairly new to this stuff... What's going on? What am I doing wrong?
The mic and the XLR to 1/4 adapter are new. The other adapter isn't, but I've tried two different ones with the same shitty results. And it's not the mic input either because I've tried other computers and nothing...
Please help me, people!
