Hi everyone, I am new to this whole recording phenomenon, and am in need of assistance. Badly. I am trying to setup my preamp in between my microphone and my sound card. The condenser mic works when directly connected to the sound card, but not when piped through the preamp. My setup: Microphone (1/8")-> Preamp Input (1/4" with adapter). Preamp Output (1/4") -> Mic input in sound card (1/8" with adapter) My preamp is just an ART Tube MP preamp. Nothing much, but I need its phantom power and its gain options are nice. No sound is being registered on the computer with this setup. It says in the preamp manual that the 1/4" input (it has 2 inputs and 2 outputs, two XLR and two 1/4") is for already line-level sound. I know my mic isn't line-level, but shouldn't it still produce a little sound, even if it is very slight? I know that if I was to actually record with this setup, it would be a complete disaster, but I'm more or less testing out the preamp. Thanks!
