What’s the easiest way to get a decent sound from a microphone into the Octatrack?
I’m running my SM58 mic into a Mic Mechanic 2 pedal and am connecting from there to the Octatrack via an XLR to 1/4 jack lead, but something about the signal is incredibly noisy. I’m presuming it’s the XLR to 1/4 lead, but whatever it is, it’s borderline unusable at the moment.
Does anyone have any suggestions about how I could better connect this pedal to the Octatrack without this noise (maybe there’s a better lead)? Or is there another decent but inexpensive way to pre-mic the signal that you guys use?
