I am new to sound recording. I have a Steinberg UR22 MKII sound card that I have connected to mono inputs (one for my electric piano and one for my dynamic microphone). The microphone input only records anything if the Input gain knob is set to maximum! Even then the voice gets recorded only if it is higher than a threshold.
I am using an XLR cable for the mic.
The cubase project has 2 audio tracks which are assigned to the UR22 as mono inputs.
The Vocal track only has Cubase's "default" vocal effects, i.e. the ones which are added as part of its sample "piano and vocal" project.
