Hey guys, Got myself an SM58 and When I go to record in Reaper, I dont get a signal at all when the mic is in the mic input. But if I plug it in the guitar in port, I get a signal, but its extremely weak. Sorry if this has been covered, I only minutes of internet connection available at a time due to some wireless problems.

Did you change the input in gearbox from instrument to mic? Also make sure the mic gain is turned up.

You can plug the mic into guitar port, but as thin input doesn't have microphone preamp, it will not amplify the signal enough to have a healthly signal for recording. You need a mic preamp for plugging in the microphone. Also what you can try is to amplify the preset for the guitar as much as you can and record it as loud and clean as possible, and then again turn it up in Reaper. It will muddy the sound and take away some of the dynamics, but it will work.
