Problem with computer recognizing Audio Microphone.
I am having problems trying to record anything through the C01U on my iBook 64. My computer recognizes the mic as a sound input device on the system preferences and I can see that my computer is picking up the sound. However, when I try to use the microphone though GarageBand or Sound Studio to record it fails to pick up any sound at all. I downloaded SoftPre, the C01U's driver, but still no success. Can anyone help me?

That's normal. You're supposed to record a track and then play it back. In order to hear it live you would need to enable "software playthrough" in your recording software, but there will be a delay, so it probably won't be much use.
1. right click the speaker in the lower right corner and select adjust audio properties.
2. Select the audio tab
3. Pull the drop down menu under sound recording and make sure it is selected to your audio driver device. Most are either soundmax, creative(for soundblaster and audigy standalone cards), realtek, or ASUS.
4. Next repeat step one but select open volume control
5. Go to options and then properties
6. Select the circle for recording and make sure your mic input is checked.
7. Close that window and recording mixers will pop up. Select the input you need by checking the box in the lower left corner of the mixer channel. Adjust the level and then use your recording program or sound recorder under Program files>accesories>communication>sound recorder.
I suspect the problem is with the software setup in your PC. Verify all the options and also verify that the AUDIO system is assigned as stereo and assigned to the Lexicon for both in and out... Also check any "PAN" control settings. There is a possibilty that the Alpha has a dead channel...
Try putting a stereo signal into the 1/4 inch jacks and see if both record... if NOT then take it for repair under warranty... I had a Lexicon Omega that had a problem myself... warranty repair...
plug your condenser microphone into your computer before starting up the cubase program; then after you plug it into your computer start cubase; when cubase loads, press the [F4] key, then that will bring you to the audio configuration menu, there will be a speaker option and microphone option or what ever that stuff is; go to the microphone option and choose the microphone that you are using, then after you choose your microphone setting click close; then after that make create a [audio] then on the audio tab you will see a red button, by pressing that it will allow you to record, but there is another button beside it called a [monitor], press that button then it will allow you to hear your voice while you record your vocals. hope this help.
Remember this preamp has TRS BALANCED output. If you run this with a stereo adapter into your laptop, the signal and the inverse will be sent into the L and R channels of your laptop and they will CANCEL!
You need to use a special cable that takes say just the tip of the cable from the ultragain connecting to BOTH the left and right inputs of your laptop.
