Hello to All,
I've got a pretty basic home recording set up:
Rode NT-1A Mic
Edirol UA-25 Audio Capture Interface
MacBook Pro laptop
This has served me well for several months now, but I noticed something yesterday.
Usually, with the mic sensitivity turned up to just between 12 and 1 o'clock I can fairly easily redline the input in GarageBand. Starting yesterday, I've noticed this now barely hits the halfway mark.
I now really have to crank up the mic sensitivity to get a redline - have I somehow toasted my mic?
This is the first condenser mic I've ever owned, so have no idea what's at fault. Would a condenser mic just stop working if it were on the way out or is a loss in signal a common thing?
It's only about 3-4 months old, so can't imagine what could be wrong with it (I keep it wrapped in its original packaging and treat it like a bottle of nitro whenever I take it out to use it).
Any advice would be very much appreciated.
