I purchased to a Steinberg CI 1 to enable digital dual-recording of two study participants at the same time.
The microphones I am using are attached to Plaintronics Gamecom 1 headsets and use a 3.5mm stereo connector. To connect them to the Steinberg CI 1 I bought two 3.5mm to 1/4" adapters at Radioshack. However the Steinberg CI 1 does not recognize (no light by the input) the microphones when plugged in.
My Windows 7 PC recognizes the Steinberg CI 1, but when I tried a test recording, there was only silence. There was also silence when I tried to listen to the microphone in the headset. To me this indicates that the sound is not being sent to the PC, thus an issue with the Steinberg CI 1 not recognizing the microphone.
Any ideas on how to remedy this situation? Are the microphones not compatible with the Steinberg CI 1?
