I am new to the recording world, and have purchased some equipment that I either haven't figured out yet, or isn't working well together.... Garageband Firewire Solo M-Audio Nova condensor Mic... So I've been messing around with equipment, and I just can't get the vocals up loud enough. I've turned the volume all the way up on all of the equip...to no avail. I don't know if I'm doing something wrong, or if my mic or the firewire solo sucks. I have a 10 day window to return the equipment if I don't like it... Can anyone make any suggestions? I'd rather return the equipment and invest a bit more $ if I'm not going to get a decent sound out of it.
