I have no idea what to purchase for my problems here. Hoping someone can help me out. I'll explain both my issues below...

Right now I have a capture card (doesn't require a PC), a PS3, a PC gaming headset, the "XJacker" PC to PS3 headset converter kit, an audio mixer (Behringer Xenyx 502) and 6 adapters (4 RCA to 1/4" and 2 1/8" to 1/4") for said mixer.

What I'm trying to do is split and amplify the 1/8" microphone jack on my headset. It's quiet enough as is and I fear that if I do split it then both signals will be terribly low so no one will hear them. Does anyone know what I can use to split/amplify ONLY my mic output? Can I use any 1/8" "headphone" amp or do I need one that specifically says "microphone"? Also, I wanna keep it cheap. Nothing over like $60 please!

And I've just encountered another issue. I hooked everything up and all works well except one thing. The microphone itself >.< plugged in my male 1/8" coming from the headset directly to the microphone in on the Xenyx 502 via the 1/8" to 1/4" adapter but I have absolutely no voice reception when recording. Does my mic need to be mono or should stereo be working? What's the issue?!

Just know I'd like to not use a PC. Mainly because my room is boiling when my PS3 and PC are on at the same time and it's very uncomfy.

Hope someone can help me out here. Thanks in advance biggrin.gif
