  1. Microphone Setup


    Hi, I recently bought the SF-920 Condenser Microphone which plugs into the 3.5mm Headphone Jack. I have seen tutorials on how to set up the microphone online but I do not see a separate microphone pop up on the Recording tab in sound manager. Can anyone please help me with this?

    :)
