Helix Microphone Input Setting Levels with Studio Mic Pre Block

Recommended Posts

Been a Helix user for almost 10 months but have only used it for guitar. I've been using a Focusrite Scarlett 2i2 for my voiceover work and thought I'd give my Helix a shot. I'm confused about how to set levels and hoping you guys can help out. 

 

I've got my SM7 plugged into the Helix mic input and after going to the Global Settings page I was finally able to get a mic signal adjusting the input gain there. (I thought the input was dead for a while.)

 

This is sounding good and I'm getting a good signal into Logic.

 

But when I try to experiment with the "Studio Tube Pre" block I'm getting distortion. Am I missing something?

 

Curious to hear how you guys are setting mic levels while also using other blocks like the Studio Tube Pre. Thanks.

You need to change the sensitivity of the Studio Tube Pre. Don't remember from what to what. I set the global mic sensitivity to -24db I think

The sensitivity is "Line" or "Mic." 

 

Which do you choose? Thanks.
