Sonic Port VX- Adjusting Guitar Input in Windows?

Recommended Posts

Using this on windows and the mics work great but pluging guitar straight in is a little too hot of a signal (humbuckers) and clips alot and has the sonic port's red light flashing. 

 

Is there a way to lower this input when using this on a PC or do windows users need more hardware between the guitar and sonicport?  I was hoping the gain knob for the mic would control this when switched but it doesn't.

When I lower the guitar volume it drops and quits popping but that affects the tone of my guitar a good bit.

You can't really adjust the clipping threshold of any audio device; clipping is clipping - it occurs or it doesn't. You will need to attenuate the signal before it hits the input. You could try other hardware but I'm not sure that would result in anything different than lowering the guitar volume. In either case I expect it will affect your tone as described.

 

I think you will need to find a way to restore your desired tone through post-input processing, while still avoid clipping in the processing.

 

Seems like your guitar is very hot. Have you successfully recorded it without clipping at full volume using other audio interfaces?

It's an SG with stock pickups.  I adjusted the bridge pickup and now it's good.  I ended up exchanging it for a Focusrite though just because I want a gain knob for my strats etc.  I wish the mic gain knob worked when switching to the guitar input on the sonic port.
