M-Audio air 192/4 and microphone

i have an antlion modmic 4 and and a zalman microphone but the volume is very very very low, inaudible with max gain and max volume. I have tried with jack 6,3 and with xlr adaptor but the result is the same.

I can't use this sound card with this mic?

Windows 10 OS
Ryzen 3600
Drivers are up to date
Zalman ZM-MIC1
AntLion modmic v4

Thank you

    Hey supremo,

    Thanks for posting!

    Sorry to hear that you're having trouble. Both of these mics output a different signal level than normal mics. These mics are really meant to be connected directly to your computer, not to a mic preamp. You could try to use a 1/4" to 1/8" adapter to connect the mics to the AIR's 1/4" TRS input on the rear panel. However, this signal will most likely be too weak to be amplified as it's not line-level.

    Let me know if you have any questions!
