Hello there, I purchased an XM8500 mic along with an XLR to 3.5mm cable to plug it into the PC.
Windows 7 mixer detected the device, and when ticking "Listen to device" on I can hear myself decently well, however Teamspeak seems to have something to say about this. I'm wondering if I'm missing something in terms of hardware or software which would eliminate the issues.
On Teamspeak I get a constant half-bar static noise which doesn't happen on Windows. But on Windows I'm also somewhat soft and it only picks up noise if I talk right in front of it straight in (rather than the expected round-ish area of detection that I saw on videos). Do I need some kind of pre-amp?
Windows 7 64 bit, ASUS Saberthooth x58 motherboard (integrated sound card not being used from the back, using the front panel connectors which lead into the mobo's internal if that's any difference)
Appreciate advice and resources on this matter. I will continue searching in the meantime for any information I can get! :)
