I just bought Steinberg Ci2 with Cubase AI 5 and SE Electronics X1 microphone. The problem is that I can’t get any sound from it. I used XLR cable, turned phantom power on, checked VST settings and so on but nothing. If I put gain to maximum level, some noise appears but nothing more.
My old microphone that does not use phantom power works fine. I gave my Ci2 to my friend for testing and with him it worked normally with a microphone that also uses phantom power. My computer is not very new (3.47GHz Celeron, Windows XP), so would it be possible that it does not give enough power trough USB for Ci2 to use phantom power correctly? Or does someone know anything else that might cause this?
