    Okay, so i bought this mic a while back,
    .. but i couldnt figure it out, so i gave up on it,

    but now i want to use it,

    i have a few problems with it though.

    The first one is when i try to record the vocals just sound empty & hollow, i dont mean my voice - i mean, it sounds like im recording in a hallway - standing about 3 meters away from the mic itself.

    and i dont know whats up with that,
    any ideas?

    you're standing 3 meters away from the mic trying to record?

    that'd be why you're getting that sound...

    are you sure you've got the mic facing the right way around?

    also, do you have other audio capturing devices hooked to your computer at all? ie. a webcam that could be selected as your audio input by accident?
