A microphone is a device that captures audio by converting sound waves into an electrical signal. This signal can be amplified as an analog signal or may be converted to a digital signal, which can be processed by a computer or other digital audio device. This forum is for discussing Dynamic, Condenser, USB, Ribbon and Stereo Mic Sets.

@River. I think the 57 and 58 suggest 57dbs of gain. If you are getting a -20db signal using just the H4, you are only 2dbs off of the sweet spot. If you can do a 20 to 30 second test clip for me, I can give you a very educated opinion on whether you should invest in the inline preamp. If you do decide to go that route, the cloud-lifter comes very highly recommended. It has very clean gain. I will send you a PM and give you my Dropbox upload link for the sample. It will send me an email when you upload it. Just record with 3 or 4 seconds of silence and then talk normally.
