- Set Up The PreSonus
The gain knobs (5 and 6 on the PreSonus) will have to be turned up for any data to move from the tapedeck, through the PreSonus, to the speakers. The PreSonus should light up like this when you're listening.
Be sure the Presonus is on and set up correctly. If you want to hear audio from the speakers be sure the speakers knob is turned up. If you are trying to listen through headphones, make sure the headphones knob is turned up.
If you turn the Presonus on after you've already launched a software, you'll have to restart the software by right clicking the icon in the dock and selecting quit.
