I have the following:
- Focusrite Saffire 6 USB audio interface
- Audio Technica ATR3350 lavalier microphone
I'd like to record speech into Audacity (or similar) using the above. I've connected the microphone into a 3.5mm to 6.3mm adaptor, made sure the battery is OK and the power is on, plugged it into input 1 of the Focusrite and turned the gain up as far as it will go. In Audacity, I struggle to get the level meter to get past -36db - even that is with me holding the mic close to my mouth. I've double checked the settings in OSX to confirm it's using the correct input.
I know this setup may not be ideal, but am I missing something to be able to get a decent signal level out of it?
