What to check when your card has no signal
This will happen more on the DSP24 MK2 card since most problems
like this r related to the wiring of leads due to changing from a balanced
connection to an unbalanced connection.
No or little analog input to an audio card can mean a few
- You need a preamp/mixer. With the MK2 card a mic cannot be plugged
directly into the input of the card due to a level mismatch.
- You need to reverse the phase on the XLR plug for some gear if going
from unbalanced to balanced PIN 3 is hot.
- You need to check how the lead wired if going from a TS/TRS/jack or
an RCA connector. PIN 3 is hot.
- You may need phantom power for your Mic....check u r using a fully
balanced XLR lead.
