Recording xlr out into audio interface mic or line level?

Recommended Posts

How do you guys setup your xlr out level for recording into audio interface?


Rather have a strong signal with line level or rather send out a lower mic level to sound card in order to have more headroom flexibility?


Generally, I find the sound quality better going into an audio interface than recording through usb option.


THis leads me to a second question.: Can I only record a DI signal when recording through USB?


Thanks, Cheers!

I use mic level into my recording interface, to give me more room to adjust the input gain. It helps protect against clipping, as well.
