I am in the process of upgrading my home studio from a "jam" setup to being able to record on a computer. I got all the parts in the mail and got it so that the keyboard, base, and guitars are working get but the mic is killing me. Here is what I am using. Mic: MXL 992 Preamp: Tube MP Project Series Amp: Behringer Ultraacoustic ACX1000 Interface: M-Audio MIDISport 1x1 MIDI: Yamaha PSR-275 Computer: AMD 3.0Ghz Quad-Core, 4GB RAM Sound Card: Realtek ALC888 (onboard) OS: Windowns XP sp3 Program Cakewalk Sonar 8.5 I have this setup... Mic OUT to Preamp IN Preamp OUT to Mic IN (front plug on amp) This is were I am stuck...I can not even get any sound from the mic to come from the amp. So to test this I used the old mic (Carvin CM 68) and it works great. Any ideas as to what I am doing wrong?
