M-Track 2x2 with barely a sound

I got an M-Track 2x2. I'm using an Røde microfone, but I'm barely getting any sound in. The LED meters aren't moving either. I am not sure what the issue might be. I believe I've installed the right drivers

  • Hey Jarle,

    Thanks for posting!

    Be sure to connect your microphone to the XLR combo input on the back of the M-Track. If the microphone you are using is a condenser microphone and/or requires phantom power to function, be sure to enable the +48V switch on the front of the M-Track to supply that power.

    You should also turn up the channel gain knob on the M-Track to make sure you've boosted the signal to a workable volume. You will see the M-Track's meters reflect the incoming audio. Turn up the channel gain knob until you can see the meters move and you should be able to hear the microphone. Your signal should reach a maximum of -3dB in the meter to avoid clipping the signal.

    An easy way to test whether the M-Track is receiving and outputting an audio signal is to turn the USB/Direct knob toward Direct. Selecting Direct output will take the incoming audio from your microphone and send it directly to the output. Turn the knob toward USB when you want to hear audio that your computer is processing and outputting.

    If you're having some trouble with that, try using a different input source (different microphone, an instrument, etc.) to test the M-Track's input ports.

    Try that and let me know how it works out!

  • Thank you for your response. I went to check out firstly to check the microphone, to see if it needed phantom power. which it did. heh. Now it works as intended :) (I know, an issue I could have found out doing proper reading. So thanks for reminding me of that)

    Thanks for the help!
