  • Rode NTG 2 Microphone

    I have a Rode NTG 2 microphone and an XLR to 3.5mm jack so I can plug my microphone directly into my computer, I've put a AA/LR6/1.5v alkaline battery in but when I go to record sound directly into my laptop nothing comes through.

    When I plugged it into my guitar amplifier it worked though, but when I plug it into my laptop and hit record in either Audacity or Sony Vegas no sound comes through at all, I don't have a DSLR camera to plug it into and I just want to use it for voice overs.

    Is it possible to just plug it directly into my laptop?

    Are you making sure that your laptop settings are set to take an external mic?

      Go to system preferences [on a mac] and be sure to set your sound prefs for external mic [or mic jack]. It may be set to onboard mic, instead.

          If none of those things work, try pouring toilet water on it :)
