  • Enable Phantom power on your audio interface.
  • Connect your headphones directly to the computer instead of to the interface to minimize any echo.
  • For best results for vocals, position the microphone 6 to 8 inches (15 to 20 cm) from your mouth, and speak directly into the mic if it is close, or slightly off to one side if it is further away.


  • This condenser microphone requires Phantom power supplied by the audio interface.
