I'm curious what buttons should be pressed on the front of the PreSonus TubePre V2 for use with a Shure SM7B microphone. The instructions to the mic say that is a dynamic Cardioid microphone and that it's output impedance is 150Ω.

Thank you for taking a look!

If that mic is dynamic you would not use the 48v power switch on the pre, nor would you depress the instrument switch as it is a microphone.   The only other button is a polarity button.  Turn up the mic pre gain to get a good level, adjust the drive for the level of drive you want, hit record in the daw.
