Default Please help, vent not detecting mic!?

I have to lead a rated battleground in wow in approximately 15 minutes, I JUST bought this new mic because my old one wasn't working, this mic is a logitech with a two audio cables that plug into the headphone plug on my computer, one is for headphones, and one is for the mic. Whenever I plug the mic in, on skype it works totally fine and i can practically whisper and the mic picks it up. on vent, there are two options under sound input device: Built in input, and default. on both settings it appears that it uses the mic that is built into my computer, (Macbook pro, OSX) the issue that is occuring is that if i dont talk really loud, vent doesnt pick up that I am talking at all, I am using the 32-bit speex codec and I dont know what to do

The audio input port is a Line-In port, not a mic in port.

The audio input on the MacBook requires a microphone that has it's own power source i.e. a Powered Microphone to operate properly.

It's odd that Skype is working as it shouldn't be.

Here's what you need to make the Mic work

However, I would suggest picking up a USB headset instead. Logitech seems work pretty well.
