Issues with Line Level Balancing

Hello everyone,

First id like to start off by saying I am very ignorant to the technical aspect of equipment and such, but with that being said lets get to the subject..

I had recently purchased a Korg Volca Sample, and with my ignorance also bought the Audiobox 22VSL (which is not line level) with hopes of recording the audio from the Volca to Ableton. With the issues of buying the Audiobox, it led me to having to buy a DI Box (my current is LiveWire Passive).
So, I set it up, having my:

Korg Volca (1/8 to 1/4 Y Cable) -> In/Out (Parallel) on my Livewire DI with the Output (Female XLR to 1/4) -> Instrument Preamp on the Audiobox 22VSL

Ive followed every step in Ableton to hear the Audio from the Korg being playing back (in Ableton) but yet I dont hear anything.

Is there something im doing wrong? Is my setup with the DI box not correct?

Please help! I dont want to feel like my purchase of the Korg Volca Sample to be a waste!

    What do you mean when you say the audio interface is not "line level"?

    All you need to do is this:

    - connect the audio interface and make sure it is selecten in the audio preferences.

    - check audio inputs and outputs are turned on.

    - connect Volca outputs to audio interface inputs.

    - load a new audio track in Live, select inputs from Volca/audio interface (usually 1/2) and voila, you can record your Volca

    So you do not need a DI box or anything. Just the interface and some cables.
