So this question sounds ameture im sure yet I have to make this work so here it goes. Im a Podcaster and Beat maker. Ive recently had to upgrade my entire studio set up because mine was simply out of date. Ive been using a firewire Mbox pro for many years and have now updated my interface to the Quantum 2626. In my old set up (Mbox) when I had the mics hooked to the interface and turned on the ghost power I was able to hear myself or the mic output live in my headphones. Currently the Quantum unit is up to date firmwere wise and the unit is registering when the mic is spoken into yet I cannot hear the output like I was able to before with the mbox setup. I need this because the podcast is done in headphones to encorperate instrumentals and I need to hear the mic output in the phones. I would like to know how to set this up on the Quantum.

Do you see the level meters moving in both Universal Control and your DAW. What DAW are you using? Do you have headphones plugged into the Quantum?
