- a Boya BY-MM1 microphone which has a nominal impedance of 300 ohms
- a Steinberg UR-12 with a balanced microphone input that has a nominal impedance of 4 kOhm
I connect the microphone to the audio interface (via a 3.5mm cable and a 3.5mm->XLR adapter, if that's important) and I hear no sound. Another microphone, which is instrumental and for which I don't know the exact impedance or model, works perfectly (it is connected via an XLR cable, if that's important.)
I am suspecting that the impedance ratio is too off. Am I right or have I missed something else? If I'm right, what should the ratio be? I've read it should be about 10, but it doesn't seem like the case here.
