Default No audio coming from Microkorg

Hello avid community, after doing some intensive research online regarding my dilema, I have come to the conclusion that I have gone nowhere in my attempt to fix the audio problem as stated below.

Being a fresh newbie to pro tools, my first goal is to get keyboard sounds from my external instrument to be recognized by pro tools. all I/O settings are on default, I have 2 1/4 cables (trs) going into both the inputs of my audio interface (Apogee IOS), and have created an audio track to try record my synth, but to no avail. The I/O for the Audio track goes as follows...

(Input) I/O > Interface > Mic 1-2 (Stereo)
(Output) Output > Line 1-2 (Stereo) -> Line 1-2

The track is set to record, but I get no audio or moving bar from within pro tools. I'm desperate to solve the situation as my research has failed immensely for the past year. I really want to start making music using synths, but i'm at a road block. Some help would be really appreciated, Thank you very much Avid community!

What happens when you hit Record, and then start playing the synth?

Do you have a selection for Line input? Because that's what the 1/4" cables should be connected to. Does the Microkorg have an internal setting than enables the output jacks?

Go to Setup> "I/O..." and check out the input page. Click the Default button. Go back to your audio track and select the input, you should only have two analog inputs available.

Default Re: No audio coming from Microkorg

When set to record nothing happens. The audio isn't present at all.
This is how it looks when I set the input in the I/O settings to default.


and this is how the track is set up when trying to get audio out of the synth.



I'm still unsure what the problem is though.

Edit: I just solved the solution. Turns out the Apogee ios had a separate program that enables instrument play (Maestro) , by sacrificing both mic inputs and turning them into instrument inputs. (If that makes any sense) Sorry to take up your time guys. and thank you for the help!
