Microphone Connection Issues using M-Audio M-Track

I have just purchased an M-Audio M-Track Interface that came with Ableton 9 Live Lite.

it's all been set up but I cant get the microphone to work through Ableton. I have watched many videos & tutorials to try & sort it out but nothing is working for.

I am based in Australia so I can not get into contact with the support team in Berlin, this is my best chance!


Someone HELP please!!!!

    Hard to tell where the problem is. But some things to check:
    - make sure input volume is turned up, depending on model/mic inputs.
    - depending on type of microphone: make sure it is turned on/receiving power.
    - make sure m-audio is selected as audio interface in preferences and check if the used inputs have been activated in the in/out settings.
    - open an audio track, set input to the correct channels of your interface.
    Set it to 'ext in', set monitor to 'in'.
    - Live should now be getting a signal when you talk into the mic.

    Did you ty all of that?
