I know this seems to be a popular question (for example), I read prior Steinberg support forum posts, watched a few YouTube videos, went through the Steinberg UR22C manual but still can’t get any sound from my mic.
Problem: Can’t get any sound from my mic. My electric guitar plugged into Steinberg works great - I see regular waveforms, can play the guitar back and hear it.
My setup: I have a brand new UR22C, a brand new mic cable, a brand new Sterling ST131 mic. I am using Cubase LE AI 12. The mic requires phantom power, so I turned it on the UR22C. I tried the mic on Inputs 1 and 2 with the inputs all the way up. The highest I could get the mic was -45.8 by speaking loudly or playing acoustic guitar into it.
I assume that any good mic will work well with the equipment that I have, right?
This is my last option, other than dragging all of my equipment to Guitar Center and asking that they figure it out.
Thanks in advance!
