If your microphone is not functioning properly with the AI-1, here are some helpful tips to ensure the correct settings:
- Enable phantom power if you are using a condenser microphone that requires +48V. To do this, simply press the left dial inward, and you will notice a red LED below the P48 indicating that the Phantom power is now activated.
- Activate direct monitoring on the AI-1 to enable live listening of the microphone. Press the right dial inward, and a white LED under the headphone icon will appear.
Direct monitoring allows you to hear the microphone audio directly to headphones, without relying on any recording software or DAW (Digital Audio Workstation) on your computer. If you can hear the audio from the microphone during direct monitoring, it suggests that the issue may lie with your recording software or DAW settings.
