    How do I plug in my mic

    I bought a pro45 condenser mic and when I plugged the attached cord into my sound board and got nothing. is there something I missed, a battery of some kind or another way to connect it? I don't want to send it back if i am doing something wrong with it that can be fixed.

    Answer: 
    Like all condenser element type microphones, the PRO 45 requires power to operate. The PRO 45 requires phantom power. Phantom power ranging anywhere from 9 to 52V DC is acceptable. Phantom power is often supplied by the associated audio Mixer (Sound Board), Amplifier or Recorder the microphone is being attached to. Check your board for Phantom Power. It may have it and just not be turned on. If your Sound Board does not provide phantom power, an inline phantom power supply can be installed between the microphone and the board to provide it. Such a supply is our AT8801 48 volt Single-channel Phantom Power Supply. It has XLR type input and output connectors. You will need an XLR female to XLR male microphone cable to connect the power supply to your Sound Board. Since the AT8801 requires AC power to operate, be sure to locate it near a convenient AC power outlet.
