Dual Input Microphone into Mac
on Sep 11, 2011 at 6:50:26 pm

Hi,

I am sure I am asking a very basic and easy question and so can only apoligise for that but I have a microphone which has dual left/right input connections however the socket of my iMac (12mths old) only allows for one which makes the sound recorded barely audible.

Is any aware of an adapter I could use to combine the left/right inputs, either via usb or the 3.5mm connection input.

I hope I have explained this sufficiently as I'm not great with technical jargon.

Thanks

Daniel

Daniel,

Can you please tell us what manufacturer and model your microphone and computer are? That will help us greatly!

Hi,

Sorry the microphone is an audio-technica stereo condenser microphone and my system is an iMac (model identifier: iMac11,2) running OSX with a 3.06 GHz Intel Core i3 processor.

I hope that helps

Daniel

Hello Daniel and welcome to the Cow Audio Forum.

I think all Mac have stereo analog inputs. Gain may be a factor, but you do have to visit the Mac Audio/MIDI control panel the volume.

To input correctly to the Mac, you'd need a male 1/8" TRS to male 1/8" TRS cable.
