SOURCE: MXL 990 has really low output
These are really cheap mics! I have two dozen of them because what I do requires the mic to be expendable. The capsule is pretty fragile and just a little drop or hit to the mic can drastically alter the frequency response and output level. If you record with it and it has a hollow sound I would bet this is what happened. If you can generate white or pink noise out of your system, then record it. Just hold the mic in front of the speaker. Play it back and compare the tone of the recording to what you just heard. Hollow? There you are!

Phantom power comes in different voltages. Make sure your power supply is delivering enough. Also make sure that your mike cable is wired properly. 1 is ground or shield. 2 is hot or Ve+ and 3 is cold or ve- If 1 and 3 are bridged for unbalanced use or if you have a short it won't work and will probably damage the mike or the power supply. I think the power supply needs to be 48 volts and you have to use the stereo XLR cord that is recommended for it. I hope this helps.

Check the input and output settings. Look in the preferences or settings menu for "i/o settings" or "i/o setup." You're going to set it from the default internal mic input to this one. It sounds like it may be that simple.

Are you using the original cable for the mike? In order to use phantom power the XLR connectors have to be wired in balanced configuration. Pins 1,2 and 3 must be wired separately. If you use a cable with 1and 3 connected you could damage the phantom power supply and in some cases the microphone.
