SD Recording, very low audio levels
Posted 09 June 2014 - 02:21 PM
Everything easy and recorded well but with very low audio levels.
My two mic channels were levelled around 0db and guitar and bass around -5db.
Main out level was at -10db. I recorded inputs and main outs.
The individual tracks appear louder than the main mix. The main mix .wav file imported into my DAW shows let's say max. 8-10% of a useful audio level.
How can I adjust volume levels for recording?

In a nutshell, the M20d leaves more headroom on purpose. In my test I had a signal at 0db in the m20D and it showed up at -15 in Apple Logic.
SInce it's in 24 bit word format, it's actually not a problem at all.
You can normalize as SiWatts69 says, or just bump your gain in your DAW by 15 dB...
