I'm just getting started in the producing world.
I bought a really cheap condenser microphone with an xlr to usb cable and it works, just doesn't get enough power obviously. So I decided to purchase the focusrite scarlett 2v2 2nd generation. I registered my product, downloaded the necessary latest driver, plugged my microphone in, the light flashes and then turns off. I have the switch selected to "line", i have gain almost to the max, i have the 48v phantom power supply switch turned on. I need to microphone not only for recording, but I mostly need it for skype, discord, in-game microphone. I have tried plugging my guitar in the audio interface and it works fine, when i play chords the light turns green, I can record to fl studio, etc. But with the microphone when I talk nothing happens.
Any help is greatly appreciated, thanks :)
