Guys, I have behringer XM8500 connected to my ASUS Xonar D2X Sound Card, the recording is too low though I put it to the Maximum in settings.Any hint?
This type of microphone requires a "pre-amp". Most mixing boards have these built in to the mic channels but since you are going direct to computer without first going through a mixer you'll need to buy a standalone preamp of some sort.

Where's your pre-amp?
Hello, today I got a Behringer XM8500 and a Female XLR to 3.5mm cable today and hooked it up to my computer with the intention of using it to talk to people on skype or teamspeak.
The first issue was that it was incredibly quiet, and only with the mic boosted on my Realtek drivers to the max and the recording volume to the max could you even hear the mic.
This isn't a big problem though as I can just have it near me - it picks up fine on Audacity so I know the mic is definitely functional.
However, when testing it on Teamspeak I can't hear my voice AT ALL, and Discord my voice is nonexistent there too.
All my drivers are fully updated, I feel like i'm just doing something stupid. Can anyone help? Thanks
