Help please...Manny Marroquin Reverb Plugin not working...

Hello, I recently bought the Manny Marroquin reverb plugin to use in ableton. I open it up from my list of plugins and drag it onto some vocals I've recorded, but the plugin isn't doing anything! I can see it's there and I can open it up and it was working at one point, but for some reason it is no ...

Thank you, so do you plug the mic into the preamp and then the pre-amp into the interface? Thanks!

Re: Help please I'm going to cry!

I think I maybe have found my answer... Just came across this thread on another site...looks like it's probably microphone and pre-amp interface compatibility issue, seems the Shure SM58 needs an interface with a preamp in that will allow for it to be turned up loud enough for it to be audible... h...

Hi, I have tried adjusting the buffer sizes in Ableton and still no difference :( The one good thing about this interface is I'm not getting any latency (the reason I bought it in the first place!!) just getting static instead *sigh*

Re: Help please I'm going to cry!

For the interface test you would possibly need another Mic to test with but: You say when you have the volume way up you hear static. If you disconnect the mic from the line you also still hear static (which would make sense for interference in the cable). What if you can hear the static clear if y...

Re: Help please I'm going to cry!

Which input on the interface do you have it connected to? It sounds like the mic is possibly not running through a pre-amp if you have to crank up the volume all the way to hear it but you get loud static through the cable especially without anything connected at the other end. Which port is the mi...

Re: Help please I'm going to cry!

Hmm, that's not brilliant. It should be quiet, or with a noise floor down around -80db. Like ... Quiet. If its louder than that. Like - the live meters or other input meters on the computer show something above -50db theres a problem, (does it have a focusrite software mixer?) Then you want to take...

Re: Help please I'm going to cry!

That sort of persistent fluttering sound can also be component death in an amplifier. So that wouldnt be good. The technique to check leads and sockets is Try a different lead in the suspicious socket. Result OK = socket is OK try the suspicious lead in a different socket. Result OK = lead is OK Tr...

Re: Help please I'm going to cry!

"Static" is usually a shitty cable. There's a break in it, and as the electrons make the jump you get crackle noises. Like a capacitor discharging. Static. Mic cables can be obtained for very little. In the olden days when something broke the maxim was always "check the leads, then check the socket...

Re: Help please I'm going to cry!

Can you try another microphone and cable? Also, is your phantom power on? Check your gain levels... Thank you for your reply. No Phantom power isn't on, tried it with it on and off. Tried adjusting the gain levels, have to turn the knob on full or almost full to hear anything from the mic so maybe ...
