Hello and sorry you're having problems. The Tascam recorder is a line level recorder- meaning it does not have provisions to connect a microphone directly- and the microphone's output signal is not adequate for the recorder to be able to record from it.

What you would need in order to connect a microphone to this unit, is a small mixer- which boosts the microphone signal to line level and then any dynamic microphone which will pick up sound form multiple directions.

I am pulling up links to these devices right now.

The small microphone mixer below will connect using it's "Line Out" connections to the "Line In" connections on the recorder.

Then ANY microphone can be connected to the mixer for recording purposes. I am pulling up a link to one right now.

The one above is a cost effective microphone and will have decent quality, there are other units in all different price ranges that will work as well.
