So, I've had this problem for a while, and suspect it is either caused by:

  • A firmware update
  • Some kind of interplay between Studio 192 and Studio One

The Problem

The mic is REALLY quiet. When recording audio in Studio One. As in, I crank the preDB up to 60, scream into the mic, and you can barely hear the audio recording.


I've tried 3 different mics, 5 different cables, and have switched between mic-1 and mic-2 ports. The same problem persists everywhere.

I've unplugged everything but Studio192.

Sometimes, when I turn my machine on, the mic works great. Then, for whatever reason, it goes into this funky state. Not sure how to resolve it.

I'm pulling my hair out on this. Any thoughts?

Is that a condenser mic that needs phantom power?

One of the mics that I've tested with is the ES-58-S. I borrowed a few more other non-condenser mics from musician friends, still to no avail.

Also forgot to mention: Plugged in a few electric guitars and also had no volume.

A kludgy hack is to turn on the compressor, and crank the gain up 100%, and then I get sound maybe upwards of 40%.

Sounds like a preamp or power supply problem. I’d get in touch with PreSonus customer support to determine what steps to take next.
