    Exactly what "condenser mic" do you have, and how is connected - direct 3.5mm, direct USB, via an external audio interface & if so what type?

    Also, what software are you trying to use to record with?

    There are literally many thousands of microphones and a vast number of interfaces.

    There is no one way to set up a microphone - it depends on the equipment and software.

    For info, any truly expensive & high quality one would have an XLR connection and need a separate audio interface to connect with a PC.

    Most claimed "condenser mics" that do not have XLR connections are scams, electret mics in fancy casings.

    There are exceptions, such as a few less-common USB true condenser types, but the are not generally expensive ones.
