Hello Kristen, welcome to the HRC, and too bad your entry is under duress.
Anyway, i'm gonna walk through the steps, as I can't readily see what's going on through the screen.
Legend: LO = Lexicon Omega CLE = Cubase LE4
You've got the LO connected, and drivers installed.
I don't know what software you're using, so i'll assume its cubase le4, as you posted in the other thread.
you'll want to tell CLE to use the LO as its input and output. Possible choose ASIO as the software interface if possible, or you can use WDM as well. Both are good. This should be in some preferences, or options page.
You'll need to probably create a track in CLE, to accept signal.
You'll probably need to ARM the track, which tells CLE to listen on an input. I don't know how CLE does this, but hopefully it's easy to figure out.
Now, with the mic plugged in (you don't say which mic) you should see some signal on an input meter in CLE.
- sidestep - depending on what mic, you may need phantom power turned on. dynamic mics (SM57, SM58 are popular choices) don't need phantom power, but condenser mics (AT2020, MXL line, Rode, etc) do need phantom power, so turn it on if you need it.
So, hopefully you see some signal in CLE on that track. pressing RECORD should write any source signal to the track, and you should see the waveform created inside the track.
After the signal has been written in the track, you should be able to PLAY and it will play the sound.
If you are using ASIO, then you can only have 1 interface (or sound card / device) being used at a time. This means that if your speakers are plugged into your onboard sound, and you're recording with the LO, then you're output wont get to the speakers. To keep using ASIO, you would need to plug the speakers into the LO and tell CLE to use the LO as output (if you didn't already). If you want to keep using the onboard sound for playback, then switch your software inferface driver to WDM instead of ASIO. WDM can use different devices at the same time, whereas ASIO can't (usually).
Let me know how things match up against what I've posted, and we can better get to the root of the problem.
