Hi, I want to connect a 3.5mm stereo mic plug (coming from a gaming headset) to my UR22, but I only get silence from the line inputs.
I tried this 3.5mm mono plug to XLR adapter:
Using this I can sometimes get a barely audible glitchy input, with the gain knobs at max. The input is mostly drenched in noise though.
If the mic signal coming from the headset is not balanced (which I don’t think it can be), won’t the R+L mic signals cancel each other out? Maybe I need to first convert my 3.5mm stereo plug to a 3.5 mono plug and then use the XLR adapter?
Looking at the manual for the UR22, it looks like it always treats an XLR input as balanced, and that I might need a 6.35mm mono plug for it to accept a non-balanced mic.
Please help, I’ve searched for this issue but cannot find a good answer. What type of adapter do I need?
