Guys help im begging you! PreSonus + Shure mic problem

hi guys i hope someone can help me here!

i just got a presonus preamp and connected it to my macbook pro ok , i got the blue light so i was pretty happy now i connected my mic shure 58 beta to mic1 channel and was trying to test it on ableton but there was no signal AT ALL. so i installed cubase followed all instructions , changed preferences etc. now im trying to test it on the audio track and same situation again - absolutely no signal. i tried to boost up the volume at firebox control but i can't tick the levels for some reason (?)

seriously any help would be appreciated - i got it all nicely box from US but im starting to think that the item might be faulty ???

Regardless of what program you are using you need to go to audio preferences and select the Presonus. It should now work.
