noob to this forum so apologies in advance for errors/not following conventions.
I'm recording YouTube videos and for audio using a Behringer C3 with a Shure X2U adapter for my PC (Dell Inspiron, running Windows 10). I use Camtasia for screencasting and then editing the videos.
My issue is that, even with phantom power (48+) the audio recorded is so low. It barely registers in terms of wave forms (even with the gain cranked way way up, which of course results in distortion).
My question: would a powered USB hub help? Is it possible that the mic is not getting sufficient power to have great quality audio?
Any other ideas would be appreciated!
