Rode NTA-1 not working with Focusrite Scarlett 2i2 interface

Hi all,

I've got two new pieces of gear that I'm struggling to get working together.

I have a Rode NT1-A condenser mic plugged into my Focusrite Scarlett 2i2 with an XLR-XLR cable.

I have switched the 48v phantom power button on and off but I'm still getting zero signal.

I've checked my Sound Preferences on my Mac and my interface is selected on Garageband and correct input is selected on Garageband.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

You say “new pieces of gear”. If the mic is new, it should be under warranty. If it is only new to you, but not a new purchase, I would still contact Rode. I don’t know any other way to guarantee that it will be repaired to factory spec. I would recommend a Joly mod, but he has retired from mods.

Do you have the gain turned open on the 2i2?

What is showing in the Focusrite software? That might be the issue.

I just figured out my mic lead was faulty.

Thanks for the help people.
