I am trying to connect a headset with inline microphone to my computer through my NI Komplete Audio 6 audio interface. The headphones have a 1/8" TRRS male cable which I have plugged into a 1/8" male splitter. I plug the headphone splitter into a 1/4" adapter and into the headphone jack of the interface and this works fine. My problem is when I go to plug the 1/8" mic into (the same type) of 1/8 to 1/4" adapter and then into one of the interface inputs. The interface does not pick up anything no matter what I do (turning all the gains up/using inst level).
I have confirmed:
- The input to the audio interface is receiving signal (plugged a guitar with 1/4" cable and heard sound on monitor and computer).
- Microphone is working (plugged headphones into computer with direct TRRS adapter)
- Confirmed headphones are working through splitter
What could be the problem here? My only thought is that the 1/4 in jack may be wired differently than the 1/8"?
