Hi. I am currently using a Audio-Technica AT2035 running through a UX2 audio interface connected to my computer through USB and it picks me up, but I am really low. I tried messing around with the settings in POD Farm 2.0, but it didn't make a difference. I tried also to change the settings in the windows sound control panel by changing the microphone volume. Some people suggested checking the microphone boost check box, but when I do, there is no difference. There isn't even a slider to change how much it boosts. Any help or suggestions would be appreciated. If you would like to know just how low I am, check out this youtube video I made: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MGEhOfaHLSI

Do you have the phantom power switch on the UX2 turned on?  Are you using a good XLR-XLR mic cable?

Yes, I have the phantom power switch on because without it, my mic ceases to function. What do you mean by a "good" XLR cable? I am using a standard XLR-XLR cable that came with my scissor arm.

Just asking are you sure the cable is a good one - makes good connections?  If you have a spare one, try it.  Not sure what the 'scissor arm' you mention is - is this one of those spring-loaded booms like in radio stations?

What are you recording into?

btw, if you have POD Farm 2.0 you should upgrade to 2.5 for free, download the newest Monkey and get all the updates.

This probably is not the issue but let's get that part sorted first.

Maybe. Here is the link to the scissor arm i bought: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B007PR4ZFM/ref=oh_details_o01_s00_i00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 It comes with a build in XLR cable.

 

 

I'd definitely try a separate XLR cable first.  I've never seen one of those scissor arms before - except on cheap desk lamps.  The booms used in radio station studios are very different (and won't make springy-boingy noises when moved, either!0

I do not know what you mean when you say "booms used in radio station studios". Can you maybe link me to one?
