Hi, i just got a røde nt1-A condencer microphone. When i connect it to my interface and push the 48v button, it takes a while and i suddendly get dropout for the sound, and it feels unstable. I tried the mic with my zoom r24 recorder (dosent use computer), and i had the same problem. Then i looked at the 3 xlr pins and saw that one pin (the one up to the left if you have the triangle pointing downwards) was about 2 mm longer out than the other two and it went slightly out the socket of the mic. Is it supposed to be like this? This is my first condencer so i dont know.
Sounds faulty, send it back. Don't mess with the pins.
