    Hello all, I have, what I hope will be, a simple question:

    I have an MBox 2 hooked up to my MacBook Pro via USB. I have my PreSonus TubePre hooked up to my MBox 2 via 1/4" cable (Unbalanced out from TubePre to Line (TRS) input 1 on MBox 2). I have my Sterling Audio ST59 mic plugged into the Microphone input in my TubePre. My Mbox has power, my TubePre has power and the phantom power (+48V) is turned on on the TubePre for the mic. When I open ProTools 8 LE, no sound seems to be registering through the microphone. When I hit record, the tracking bar moves but it doesn't seem to be recording anything (no colored block appears following the tracking bar as it moves). Help? Maybe I need to change some inputs somewhere? Do I have things hooked up incorrectly? Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!

    OK, take it one step at a time.

    Do you get any response on the VU meter of the TubePre? If the meter responds to sounds at the microphone, you have problems further down the line. If it does not, your microphone and/or TubePre input is not functioning correctly. Let us know, and we'll move on to the next step.
