(Phantom power adapter is not included). 3. The microphone cannot be used with mobile phone and tablet computer. Note: it cannot work with Mac. 4. If you want better sound effect, a sound card should be used. 5. When recording, please put the microphone away from the amplifier to prevent recording noise due to amplifier.
