Microphone not working in Cubase LE 9

Looking for guidance please! It’s been 17 days of trial and error with m-audio m-track 2x2m and Cubase LE 9. I’ve finally got to the point where I can record MIDI without trouble (although I can’t play it back…yet). I can ‘record’ an audio track, but my mic is not registering any sound on Cubase. It is showing as working in M-audio, but that’s as far as it goes.
My settings are as per the pic. Any help would be greatly appreciated, thank you.


Mic is Mono. So add Mono Bus in the VST Connections > Inputs. Or, once you add a Mono Audio tracks, select Stereo In - Left as an Input (if your Mic is connected to the 1st input).

Also make sure you are powering the mic by phantom, if needed (condenser mic).

Can you see the incoming signal in the MixConsole’s input channel (red Channels on left)?

Hi Martin, thank you for your reply, I will give that a try. Regards, Colette

Hi and welcome,
