How do I use a stereo microphone with the iMic? (Mac and PC)
Stereo microphones can be confusing because there is such a wide range available, from inexpensive camcorders to professional audio models. They usually come in two major connection types, either two separate connectors or a single stereo plug. Generally, if yours has two connectors (XLR or 1/4"), you'll need to route them through a mixer, microphone pre-amp, tape deck, etc. to properly amplify the signal. That signal is then sent to the iMic using stereo Line Out. If your microphone has a single stereo plug, it may or may not need pre-amplification. Be sure to read the microphone manual or contact the manufacturer to determine if your particular model requires pre-amping. If it does, treat it as if it had two connections - connect it to a mixer, pre-amp, tape deck, etc, and route it to the iMic through the stereo Line Out. If it doesn't require pre-amplification, simply connect it to the iMic.
