Let me rephrase my previous question, while i'm new to audio equipment i've been looking up information about audio interfaces and microphones for a while but my microphone is way too quiet, i've had the phantom power on, I have the mic plugged in, everything is setup right but my microphone is still quiet even with the fethead phantom boosting my mic it's still barely getting -24 db on my audio interface, i've tried everything to fix from reinstalling the device on my computer, trying other XLR cables, even tried switching which input i'm plugged into, but no matter what I do my microphone is still so quiet that I need to turn the gain up to around 80% to get any good sound out of it and i'm using a condenser mic set to 50% I've seen other people just plug their mics in without a booster and set the gain lower than mine and still get better levels I have no clue what's wrong here, if anyone can tell me how I can fix the problem please any help is appreciated.
