Can you use this to connect a Rode Procaster (XLR) to a MabBook (USB)? Does it work properly?
Asked by: Tony
This is an affordable audio interface, that would allow the Rode Procaster microphone to be connected to a PC or MAC computer via USB. This unit offers plug-and-plyt operation and a headphone jack for monitoring from the microphone, and would work well with any microphone. .

Why is the headphone output of the mic so low but the system audio normal?
Asked by: Greg
The headphones you are using with the XLR-USB-48 may require more power which can be achieved by using a headphone amplifier such as the Polsen HPA-4X2 (B&H # POHPA4X2) to provide more volume. You can find additional options for headphone amps listed under the "Accessories" tab.

question

Will this unit work without a USB host? For example, can I use this as a pre-amp, and the headphone output directly to a recorder, without having this plugged into a computer? I'd be powering the unit via a USB power supply.
Asked by: Anonymous
I just tried it; it will power on without a host controller, but the loopback and preamp will not operate. It requires a computer to control the mixer and connect the microphone to the output.
