trying to get the mic input working on the pod hd. i am presuming that the volume level is the little black knob beside the input? i have been through the manuals and online and can't get my mic working. tried a condenser first and realized it needs phantom power- then put a fresh battery in my DI box and that didn't work so (so a DI box doesn't supply phantom power?)-went to dynamic mics (3 different ones) nothing. i am presuming from some posts that i can use a shure 58 or the like without phantom power yes? there is no info in the manuals on this input. so-nothing i have done works. perhaps my 9 volt battery DI box is the problem but why wont the regular stgae mics work. i'm an idiot. i have the wrong DI box? i would love to jsut use a dynamic mic and have it work so i dont have to go buy more hardware. i have a duet but bought this as my pod xt sounds like **** through the duet. as does the pod hd. so......it's bedtime. we'll just have a little guitar play without vocals today. thanks for listening.
