Trying to hook up a condenser microphone...

…and I can’t seem to get it working. I purchased the Lexicon Alpha, got Cubase LE5 with it. The microphone is a Neumann TLM 102. Selected ASIO DIrectX Full Duplex Driver in the device manager, I set up my outputs just fine and they work. I added a stereo input bus and selected the Lexicon Alpha In/Out. I get nothing when I record? Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

It’s the interface.
It doesn’t have phantom power, which a condenser mic needs to operate.

If you want to use a condenser mic with that interface, you’ll need a phantom power supply.
They’re not too expensive (around $50).
