I'm trying to connect a new microphone to an pre-existing mixer setup for a meeting room, and the volume is incredibly low no matter what I've tried.
Photo of the existing setup:
The mixer is a Mackie Mix5.
The old microphone is a StadiumPro AIR1PRO
There are two of these currently, and they are plugged into the Line 2/3 (L channel) and Line 4/5 (L channel) of the mixer.
The new microphone is a Rode Wireless Pro.
I plugged in the Rode wireless RX is plugged into the L channel for Line 4/5 (using a 3.5mm-to-1/4" converter).
The speaker is a Bose S1 Pro
For output routing:
- L channel for Main Out is connected to a computer's mic-input (for video calls to that meeting room)
- Phones output is connected to the speaker.
The existing AIR1Pro microphones have sufficient volume - however, the Rode Wireless Pro is incredibly soft even at maximum. I've tried setting the Rode's gain mode to manual and maxed out the level there (very soft), and also to headphone output, and maxed out the level there (still very soft).
Does anybody have any ideas on what the issue is, or what I'm doing wrong?
Or are there any issues with the existing setup?
