Recently bought the CI2. The controller side works fine with supplied Cubase AI5.
Also bought a MXL 990 condenser microphone that requires phantom power but can’t get any sound from it through the CI2.
I am using a balanced mic cable. I’ve tested the mic at the music store with an XLR to XLR cable to an amp and it worked fine. I am confused regarding the CI2’s 1/4" to XLR connector on the mic side. I’m wondering if I need a different wiring to supply phantom power?
Of course, I have activated the phantom power on the CI2 console (the led indicator is on). I’ve tried the mic on both inputs on the CI2, but I get no (mic) sound (just a pop when I activate phantom power)
This is frustrating. This is also all new to me, so I am somewhat confused as well. Am I missing something very basic? or what? I’d certainly appreciate some assistance.
