Sup guys. I just got all this equipment for a home studio several months ago and now that I'm finally putting it to the test..PROBLEMS!

My set up is as follows Apogee Duet hooked up to a reg macbook + Audio Technica AT 3035 Microphone through an XLR standard cable. So all of this stuff is brand new just out of the package and on Maestro the program that handles the Duet I'm not getting any signal from the microphone. I'm new to this stuff so it could be just a small matter of configuring computer preferences, however I followed the instructions to the dot and am getting absolutely nothing out of this.

NEVER MIND.. Please remove thread. I'm all set. Thank you!
