    Recording from condenser microphone with UMC202HD

    Hi,
    I am a newbie when it comes to recording audio.
    My use case is that I am trying to create youtube tutorials for various subjects.
    So I need to connect my Microphone to my Camera via the UMC202HD
    My Mic is the BM800 condenser microphone.
    My Camera is the Nikon D3300

    When I use the 202 directly connected to my Laptop it records perfectly.
    But when I connect the Mic to the input of 202HD and connect the output of 202HD to my camera all I get is static white noise.
    How can I fix this?

    Hi Jabali,

    Welcome to the forums. I think you need to have the "Direct Monitor" button engaged in order to get the mic signal to the outputs otherwise they are USB outputs.

    Hope this helps,
