    Hi,

    I'm currently trying to use my new Rode NT1 microphone to record into ableton. I am using a Scarlett Focusrite 2i4 as my audio interface. I am aware of the need for phantom power and have the '48v' button switched on on my interface. Although I have the phantom power on the interface seems to be receiving no signal from the microphone. I'm not sure if this is an issue with the mic, the interface, my settings, or if I am doing something else wrong.

    I will attach a photo of my Ableton preferences, the cables, and the set up between my interface, mic and computer. Any help would be greatly appreciated

    (Please note: the Rode NT1 mic and the cable are both brand new and never used)

    You need an XLR - XLR cable, not XLR - jack plug. Phantom power is not sent through the jack connection.
