I first tried using a 3.5 mm (1/8") TRS female to 6.35 mm (1/4") TRS male cable, but Evo would not show anything on the meter. I could get some signal if I plugged this 6.35 mm TRS jack into the instrument input on the Evo 4, but it was very noisy.
Reasoning that maybe the Evo 4 interprets only XLR inputs as mics (and TRS inputs as instrument inputs), I then tried chaining the MKE 400 to a 3.5 mm female to 3.5 mm male cable into a 3.5 mm female TRS to XLR male adapter. Same result as before.
I tried both +10 dB and -10 dB settings on the MKE 400.
What's going on here? I was hoping to use the preamps and ADC of the Evo rather than having to rely on the ADC built in to my laptop.
