Recording DI guitar. S/PDIF too quiet?

Recommended Posts

I'm recording DI guitars from my PodHD500x into my Focusrite Scarlett interface via S/PDIF.

 

One thing I've noticed is that the signal is really quiet. The signal doesn't go over -15 db. 

 

Is that normal or can I boost the signal somehow? I've seen people recording DI through analog outs and the signal seems stronger...

Check the Setup menus, page 5. Increase the s/pdif level parameter value.

Thank you I see how to do it now. My question now is what would be an optimal level for my DI guitars?

It likely depends on your guitar(s). Experiment until you reach a level you're satisfied with.
