I just stumbled upon this forum and wanted to just say that I have read through a lot of great articles and threads and got a lot of useful information just from the fantastic community. So thank you!
I do have an issue with my Focusriter 2i4 1st Gen that I got handed down from a friend of mine. I was excited to try it out with the Condenser Mic Senal SCM 660 Multi-Pattern but I am not getting any signal from the interface into my DAW that I can see (using Ableton Live Lite 10).
I just have the XLR plugged directly from Mic to input 2 on my focusrite and I've played with phantom power/Gain/Resetting my computer and plugging the mic in again. Still no signal and no response in ableton.
I do have a Cloudlifter CL-1 Mic Activator as well but i'm not sure if I need to use it for the interface as well.
If any of you have experience with this it would be great! I am hoping to record some covers and also try my hand at voice over work if possible with this setup. I have this all plugged into my PC which is a beast, Windows 10, Core i9 CPU with the specs to follow and PSU to power everything as well.
Many thanks to any ideas/help and questions are encouraged please! Thank you
