Helix + Logic Pro X: Volume trouble

Recommended Posts

Good Morning. I had not recorded for a while (I use the Helix interface and Logic Pro X) and yesterday I tried it for a while. My surprise was that the virtual instruments and Logic itself (even the metronome) are at a huge volume compared to the guitars coming out of the helix. I do not know what I touched, but before, the volume was right, and it is not a matter of raising the volume to each preset. It must be some configuration, but I do not know where to start. Any idea?

Hi. Do you have any bus compression/maximizer on the master bus? Also keep in mind that it's good habit to have tracks peak at -12/-18 dB and that some instrument presets in Logic are way too hot (they save them like this to make them appear they sound better).

Also, you can probably turn down USB 1/2 in level in global settings, I usually keep it at -6 to -12

When I create presets, I use a DAW to monitor level and try to keep them peaking around -12dB. This gets my presets "in the ballpark" for final gain tweaking if necessary if recording on DAW or playing live to FOH.
