Mic not transmitting to PC

asked Oct 20, 2017 in AudioBox USB by lanelapierre (120 points)

I have the Audiobox USB and a condenser microphone connected into "Mic 1", with phantom power turned on. I have headphones connected as well and I can hear myself speaking into the mic. However, the sound is not being transmitted to my PC. I can go into recording devices and see "line" with "audiobox USB audio" under it(it is set as my default device), however when I speak into the microphone I see no green bars. I have tried reinstalling my driver (universal control 2.3) multiple times, to no avail. The interface is directly connected to a USB 2.0 bus.I am currently using windows 10. Any help?

Usually that's related to a mismatch in the sample rates. Try something simple like 44.1k or 48k to see if those work.

Go to the advanced tab in that Windows interface and check out the sample rates. (There are plenty of moving parts, but that's the first place to start...)
