I recently bought a Behringer XM8500 dynamic microphone, plugged it into my audio interface (Focusrite Solo first generation) and noticed that no audio was coming from it (no signal was being produced enough to light the LED light that shows when it is receiving audio).
When I talk into the microphone and record, I can barely hear myself.
However, the interface must not be at fault, since I have a Sennheiser MK 4 condenser microphone, with no problems whatsoever.
Here's a sample: https://voca.ro/1nRqGDepN6uy
Is it the cable? Even though it works with my condenser microphone, is there still a chance my XLR cable isn't working properly with the Behringer? Or might it just be that the microphone is faulty?
