Hello VAA community!
I recently got a used C01U from a friend who bought it new and almost never used it, and I'm having a few problems with it. First of all, the playback I get when I record is super quiet. Practically inaudible. I have to turn the microphone capture volume setting on my laptop almost all the way up, which results in horrendous background white noise.
The other problem is that when I record one channel is loud and the other is soft, so the sound mostly comes out of the left speaker. Now, I've read that this is because the C01U is not a stereo microphone, so I need to record in mono. Is this true?
If it's helpful I'm using a trial version of Cool Edit Pro 2.0 to record my auditions right now until I get the software that came with the microphone (Cakewalk’s Sonar LE according to the Samson website) from my friend.
Thanks in advance for any help you lovely people can provide!
