    Hey guys. I really hope someone can help me or point me in the right direction. I recently purchased an m-audio interface from Best Buy for my home studio. It's been working great until the other day when I began recording and it would not pick up a signal for my mic. I have another mic that connects directly to the computer via usb. So i tried that mic and got the same results....nothing being recorded. If anyone knows whats going on I would greatly appreciate it because I honestly don't even know the source of the problem.

    what mic do you have, what interface do you have, how did you hook it up?

    a USB wouldn't work with an interface, those have the "interface components" built-in, which is why it hooks up straight to the computer.

    My mic is an Apex 435. I plug it into my m-audio fast track interface and that connects to my computer via usb connection.

    Yes the phantom power is on. It was working fine just the other day...now all of a sudden the green signal light doesn't come on.

    :-( i didn't want to hear that. It was in the back of my mind the whole time I was troubleshooting. Thanks for you help. I really appreciate it.
