    [Solved :)] Hi, I am fairly new to the world of XLR mics. I recently got a Rode NTK microphone and a Focusrite Scarlett Solo 3rd gen pre-amp. I use a Macbook Pro along with Ableton Live Lite and Adobe Audition. I have tried everything I can, but the preamp is not picking up the mic. IMG_2233.jpeg I will attach photos of my set up.

    try switching the Rode power supply to 120 instead of 230 mains voltage (the red slider).

    Me too... But I saw the person comes from USA, so there's a good chance that was the issue...
