Razer Seirēn Support
What connection methods does the Razer Seirēn support?
The Razer Seirēn is a digital microphone that connects to your computer via USB.
Which direction should the microphone be facing when I begin recording for a stream?
When recording for a stream or when recording audio for videos with the Razer Seirēn, you should have the Razer logo facing away from you and the OLED screen leveled and facing you. Do not record with the top of the microphone facing you as the condenser microphones inside the Razer Seirēn are not positioned at the tip.
How far away should the Razer Seirēn be from me when I am recording?
The optimal recording distance is 8 inches or 20 centimeters.
Will I be able to use the Razer Seirēn with my own microphone stand or arm?
Yes, the mounting port is an industry standard 5/8 inch port.
Is the Razer Seirēn compatible with other professional recording software?
Yes. The Razer Seirēn is compatible with professional recording software such as ProTools, Logic Pro X, Garage band, Sound Forge and Cakewalk.
What do all the knobs and buttons on the body of the microphone do?
V – master headphone volume control
P – polar recording pattern selector
G – microphone gain control
Microphone icon – Microphone mute toggle
How do I turn off the LED for the Razer logo on the front of the microphone?
The LED on/off toggle can be found under the body of the microphone right behind the 3.5 mm headphone jack.
Does the Razer Seirēn come with any recording accessories?
Yes, you can purchase the shock mount and pop filter exclusively at Razer Store.
Why is my Razer Seiren detected as a speaker in the device manager?
The Razer Seiren line of products are also detected as speakers in the device manager to allow for audio monitoring while streaming. When a headset is plugged into the 3.5mm port on the Seiren, you hear both your computer audio and mic audio.
Why do I need to install Razer Synapse for the Razer Seirēn and Razer Seirēn Pro to work?
As different operating systems may or may not have sufficient features to utilize the capabilities of the Razer Seirēn microphones, driver installation via Razer Synapse is required to enable the microphones to record at high definition 24-bit, 192 kHz and unleash their full potential.
Since updating to Windows 10, Razer Synapse does not detect my device and show the correct product configurator. What should I do?
If you encounter this, perform Synapse update through "Settings" > "CHECK FOR UPDATES." If the update is not able to run or Synapse not able to load, uninstall Synapse and download the latest Synapse Framework from Razer Support site.
I am having problems installing or locating the necessary drivers for the Razer Seirēn on Windows.
The Razer Seirēn requires dedicated drivers to achieve high bit rate recording. Install Razer Synapse to obtain the latest drivers for your Razer Seirēn.
I'm using the Razer Seirēn on a Mac, do I need to install Razer Synapse to use it?
No. Using the Razer Seiren on the Mac OS does not require Razer Synapse drivers. Mac OS natively supports high bit rate recording. However, installing Razer Synapse will provide you with advanced settings for your Razer Seirēn.
