Is there a way to use a lip mic and hook it up to my mac so that I can use Final Cut Pro. The lip Mic is an XLR. I want to know if there is such a thing as a converter that allows the audio from the XLR mic to my MacBook Pro. Thank you!
Does your mic require phantom power? There are lots of ways to get an XLR mic into a Mac. A mixer that powers the mic and then feeds a digital signal (Optical SPDIF) is one. A converter to firewire or USB is another. Metric Halo, M Box are examples of this.
If you have a card like a Kona, Matrox, MOTU, Decklink some versions of these cards have digital and analog line level inputs so a mic preamp with analog line or digital outputs can be patched in that way.
Personaly I never use the VO tool. I have Fairlight so it is better to do VO recording in a dedicated DAW. Many people prefer Sound Track pro for VO record.
