Computerstend to lack compatibility with many types of microphones. Whenusing a mic with my PC, I’ve had experience withvery little gain,extra noise added, or no gain at all. With a set of NADY professional microphones, I had to turn up the receiver gain to MAX, amplify the computer sensativity to MAX, and amplify the resulting sound in Audacityto getreasonably good audio, which added some hiss. All of these issues mostlydeal with impedance. It seems that the audio input on most PCs has an odd impedance or signal frequency.
I’d recommend an external pre-amplifyeror audio recorder.
