    Hello,

    For some reason, I can't any external mic to work. No input signal at all even though I've selected external mic, and have phantom power switched on. Anyone had this happen to them before? Am I doing something wrong?

    Cheers,
    Tony

    Help us help you. What models of microphones have you tried?

    Those mics do not require phantom power, btw.

    Yes I’m aware. I’m starting to think it’s a faulty unit.
