Hi, I'm new around here and thought I should start off with a question First off my setup: Audio interface: U46DJ, 1/4'' balanced mic input and a instrument input (Hi-Z). PC: DELL Inspiron 6400, 1.73 dual, 2GB RAM, 80GB 5400rpm. Software: Sonar Producer 7 Problem: - I connect my Shure SM57 using a XLR -> TRS cable to the microphone input. When the soundcard is connected (USB) to the laptop, I can hear my self singing in the headphones. - I make a new track in Sonar, set the input to 1/2 which is the mic input, arm the track and try recording. No signal. I am using ASIO drivers, but have tried with both MME and WDM. I can record guitar through the Hi-z input just fine, I can also record the mic through this input but with a lot of background static. I have tried on several computers, with the onboard sound devices turned off, and on. I've tried all different versions of U46DJs drivers. Am I overlooking something? Thanks!
