Not getting any signal from microphone

I’m not getting any signal at all from my microphone. I checked my mic (using sm57) and cables (female xlr to 1/4 inch), they are working. Don’t have a problem getting a signal from my guitar so I don’t think its the input jack. What am I doing wrong?

Is the mic you are using needing phantom power?

My solution is to just use my little audio interface as a preamp. I feel C&G should state in the manual that this is necessary to send useable audio signal from a mic into organelle. Has anyone found a microphone that can send strong enough signal into organelle without amplification?
