Re: Steve your awesome, please hel...
Thanks for loving my videos. I really appreciate your support!
The TMS 102 is a very sensitive condenser mic and should be picking up every little sound wave that emanates from you mouth! All condenser mics need power that is served to them via their mic cables from the mixer or audio interface they are plugged into. This "power" is often labeled: 48 v, or Phantom Power and must be switched on in order for you TMS 102 to work. If you've already done that, then the issue might be a simple matter of mic placement. A condenser mic is best placed 6-8 inches from a vocalist's mouth (any closer and you will have to deal with a low frequency boost called the "proximity effect". Still, at 6-8 inches, the mic should be very sensitive and will require some sort of wind screen to eliminate plosives.
A studio mic like the TMS also requires the artist to have good microphone technique: nuzzling up close for the soft stuff and pulling back or focussing off axis for louder stuff.
Finally, there is always compression. You could apply a little light compression on the way in (if you use one of Logic's input channels). And, you will probably need some compression in the mix to even out level changes and bring the vocal more forward in the mix.
I hope this helps!
