Hx stomp vocal recording

Hi, 

 

I ve been trying to use the stomp as my only audio interface, bought a dynamic mic with an XLR to jack  adapter, and found it sounds too weak, need to push the preamp and the out volume settings, and makes noises, buzzs... 

Am I missing somethibg? Seen in this forum people who uses helix to record vocals, 

Maybe the floor and hx models has better mic  preamps? 

Maybe my cable is too long? 

Thought stomp was the same as the other models but with the 6 blocks only capability... 

I d be happy if I could avoid buying another Interface and survive only with dynamic mics 

Thanks for your help.

Yeah I fiddled with it and never got it to work well. It seems it just doesn't have anything that amplifies the volume enough, or if you do get it loud enough it's not clean enough. 

 

I kind of chalked it up to the floor unit having a key hardware difference, like some sort of mic preamp.

 

Any feedback from other users on here? Is it possible we're both just missing something?

"Impedance converters" are simply reversed trasformer DI boxes. You can get 20dB of boost but this is not enough unless you capture a close gun shots with dynamic mike ;). Mic pres usually have about 20-60dB range.
