HELP. Track not picking up AXR4 input

I will include any screenshots you ask for until this works.

Cubase can see that the AXR4 is making sound.
For the life of me i have tried to get that sound into the audio track but to no avail.
Please give me all advice no matter how basic.
perhaps im doing something very basic incorrectly?

thanks for your time


Make sure Cubase has enabled Mic in the System Preferences, please.
Open macOS System Preferences > Security & Privacy > Privacy > Microphone. Enable Cubase here.

And the Monitor button is not enabled, so you can’t hear/see the signal on the track.

Honestly i eventually solved this issue, that was one of the things i did.
Unfortunately i did multiple things and im not sure which of them worked.
Thanks for your input.
