I'm trying to use a RØDE smartLav+ Lavalier microphone with my MacBook Pro.
The MBP is a Retina Mid-2015 (running macOS 10.14.6) and has a single port for both audio output (headphones) and input (microphone).
The microphone has a TRRS connector (audio jack) identical to the iPhone's headphones with microphone.
If I plug the iPhone's headphones into the mac it recognizes a microphone is present; I can see that in System Preferences > Sound: sound input is "External Microphone".
If I plug the RØDE microphone it is not detected: sound input remains "Integrated Microphone"
Interesting enought if plug the RØDE microphone into an iPhone it does record audio.
Finally this microphone is detected by Mid-2012 MacBook Pro (by plugging it in the headphones port, not the microphone port; the 2012 has both)
Is there anything I can do to let my Mid-2015 MPB recognize the RØDE microphone and let me record from it?
