When using with Ubuntu the volume is VERY LOW, I have to practically put the mic right up my mouth for any good quality capture. when using with Windows whoever, the capture volume is what I would expect to be normal at a good distance from the mic. wondering if anyone had come across similar issues, and whether this USB mic requires some special configuration with Linux / Ubuntu. e.g. maybe it's not pulling enough power from the USB port? or it needs special hardware kernel level config?
