I'm new to home studio recording. I've been convincing myself to buy a small set up for years. Well, I have the AKG P220 condenser mic, along with the AudioBox. I have the phantom power running. Everything is plugged in. However it's not working. I have no idea why my mic won't pic up any sound. The only levels I see are the ones from my laptop's internal mic....Can someone please help?
