can't get any reading on vu meters

I am using Mac book pro Mtn. Lion and using a Mackie analog board to deliver input signals. Cannot get any level reading at all on Ardour meters.

Also using an Ederol 101 for a/d interface. Tried plug mic directly into the 101 and getting nothing.

Please describe in MASSIVELY more detail what you’re actually doing.

You might also find that using IRC, where people can talk with you in realtime instead of going back and forth on a silly, slow web forum, is much more productive. Links at the bottom of this page or on the Support page linked at top right.
