I'm pretty new to all this and I have a RODE NT 1A condenser microphone and an old Saffire PRO 24 DSP audio interface. I've connected the interface to my computer using firewire and a Pcie express card. I tried connecting the microphone to the interface using a XLR to TRS cable because it doesn't have any XLR inputs. However, that doesn't work. Is it true that a 1/4 connector can't provide phantom power? I really hope someone can show me a way to make it work.
