I am a total newbie when it comes to recording. I think that I have followed the instructions to the letter. I bought a Lambda digital recorder a few days ago. Installed the software on my laptop, plugged in through the USP port, hooked up my passive mic to phantom power. I get signal, as judged by the meter on the front of the Lambda. I have gone throught he record instructions 10 or more times setting each tab as instructed. Hit record, play a little and nothing happens. My computer does not capture anything. The USP port works, as the Lambda draws power from it. My laptop is a few years old but superceeded all of the requirements listed in the instructions for the Lambda. Any thoughts or words of wisdom? I imagine that it is something simple but how frustrating.
