First of all, if you use phantom power on mics like SM58 you will most likely KILL the mic....
Phantom power is only for mics (like condencer mics) that require phantom power to operate.
Eventhough I never came to such a problem but let me ask you a couple of questions.
1) Which program do u use for recording?
2) Are you using Pod Farm? If yes, Did u check the levels on the mixer page of pod farm? Also there is a +18dB button that might be pressed. Check this as well.
3) On your DAW (recording software - Digital Audio Workbench I think) check your recording levels.
I hope this helps you a bit. And if not, I will be here.

Thanx for the reply! I'm just using a Macbook Pro w/ Garageband for now... will upgrade after I get the basics down. Yeah, I know not to give phantom power to the 58... Thanks though... if I hadn't known that... I'd be laying my 58 to rest! I think I've got my original question sussed out... (man I suck at this stuff!) Definitely more of a player than an engineer! My new issue is that after downloading the latest driver I'm not able to get any signal through to Garageband... my meters are registering... I can play and hear tracks already recorded... just cannot get new tracks recorded... I'll play around with the ux2 tonight and it's probably just a noob error... but I'll cry "HELP!" if I cannot work it out... Sorry just re-read your post... I do use podfarm... I'll check the +18 button later too... as well as the other stuff... Thanx again!
