    Hi there just got Lexicon Alpha with Shure sm57 , i used this vid here Lexicon Alpha - How to Record a Track in Cubase LE5 - YouTube to assist me so i think i have it setup correctly. So i can hear mic through headphones when plugged into alpha but when i try to record on cubase it just picks up sound from in built microphone on my mac. I went to audio settings and changed input to alpha option. I know im missing something very simple but im a complete begineers so would love some assitance please ? Thanks alot xx

    I'm not a Mac guy... so take this with a grain of salt, but in addition to selecting your Alpha as your audio I/O within Cubase, you may need to also get into your computer's system properties and select the Alpha there as well ( or disable the Mac audio I/O).

    In short, Your computer, outside of the Cubase program, might be defaulting to the built in Mac audio I/O.

    Just a thought.

    Here's the official way of changing the audio input and output selection on a Mac:
    If this still doesn't work, consider using Soundflower to route the audio internally from one device to another.
