Razer headset mic working with M-Track 2x2m?

Hi, i'm all new to this, so pardon if this is a stupid question.
I bought a M-Track 2x2M for my computer (Win10) to use along with my bass guitar. I also have a headset, meant for gaming (Razer Tiamat 2.2) that i thought would work in combi plug in the back. However when i plug it in it does not recognize any mic in Windows, and i get indication of it working. The headset out sound is very good, and the bass guitar is working flawlessly. What am i doing wrong? Will this work, or do i need to get a different microphone?

  • Hey Geir,

    Thanks for posting!

    This is not the most ideal headset to use but I think you can make it happen (the length of the leads at the end of the headset's cable might make it difficult). The instrument input on the front of the M-Track is used for instruments with high impedance signals like electric guitars and basses with passive pickups. Since you are connecting a microphone, use the mic/line inputs on the back of the M-Track.

    It looks like the headset you're using does have 2 individual leads for the headphones and microphone input so that's a good thing. Connect the headphone portion of the cable to the headphone out on the front of the M-Track. Control the headphone output level with the headphone knob on the right of the M-Track.

    Connect the lead for the headset's microphone to one of the channels for a mic/line input on the back of the M-Track. Use the gain knob on the channel you're using to boost the input signal to an audible level.

    The USB/Direct knob will blend the USB signal (what is being processed by your computer/software) with the direct input signal (what is going directly into the interface from the source). This is a useful function if you are experiencing latency (a delay between the input and output signal processed by your computer). Set the knob toward one setting to hear only one signal or blend the signals by positioning the knob somewhere in between.

    Once you've got everything connected properly, you should be able to select the input channel to which you've connected the microphone lead of the headset in your software (Input 1 or Input 2) and record/monitor your voice.

    I hope that helps you!

  • Hello and thanks for the reply. Unfortunately this did not work for me. I get no signal no matter what i do, so i'm starting to believe this mic has too low impedance for this.
