Same here. Cords connected. Meter bars jump in Audient interface software, but v5 is dead.

Audient interface selected in S1 audio settings.

Record button on. Monitor button on. Correct left input channel selected for mono recording. Tried the right as well!

I can hear sound in headphones. As noted, Audient interface software detecting sound and Audient interface meters jumping.

Push record in PreSonus Studio One Version 5--the great new upgrade with Sphere!

Nothing but an empty audio event.

Two hours of reading manuals and poking around wasted. Tried it in Logic just to make sure. Clicked R and three seconds later I was recording. I wonder if she'll take me back?

Don't fear the reaper.

Same for me.  I get sound from my mic thru my audio interface, but nothing in Studio One v5.5.  The proper inputs are selected from the input track.  The track is armed for recording, input monitoring is enabled, and still no sound or levels. Just an empty event when I press record.  I've tried using my Audient iD14, and Scarlett Solo running my AT4833 microphone through a Pro MPA II preamp.

I've also tried removing/adding new inputs, toggling between different sound devices, and restarting my computer.
The only thing that worked was using a different DAW (Reason 11.3) to record.  smh

You have to go to "Security and Privacy" in System Preferences, then select "Microphone", and in my case, make sure Studio One and Cubase have check marks next to them.  If these are not checked your internal/external microphone will not work within specific programs installed on OS X.
