Shure SM7B "Whitenoise"

I just bought the Shure SM7B today. I tested it on my Focusrite Saffire Pro 24 Interface.

I noticed that there is a lot of "whitenoise"(I dont know what you call it, but its that hissing.

I checked with another microphone that I had and there was a lot less noise.

Apparently this SM7B need A LOT of gain.

Do you guys have a solution?

Just as a quick reminder, you're not using pp on the sm7b correct, being that it is dynamic.

Triton Audio Fethead or Cloudlifter. $100-150.

Gives you 25db of clean extra gain so you dont have to crank your interface's gain up to the point it hisses... you are hearing the noise floor of your interface, not the mic.
