Raising the input level for high gain instead of lowering it?

Recommended Posts

Dear Native-Community,

 

I mostly use Native for Clean and Break Up Tones with my Strat and my ES-type guitar. I have to lower the input level inside Native to about -15 to -10 dB for a dynamic feeling.

 

But I noticed that if I try to achieve a high gain sound for metal or modern rock, I have to raise the input level to about +5 to +10 dB. Otherwise Palm Mutings sound weak and the signal is not hot enough. It may have something to do with the low output of the pickups but with these I definitely have to raise the input level. 


Or is there another possibilty I overlooked? I use the Audient ID14 interface and the the input gain on this device is at the lowest possible level. 

 

Looking forward to your answers :).

No you nailed it you have to turn up input level from what I've seen

Set your HiZ level once with peaks about -10dBFS and forget it. If you feel some amp models give you too little gain you can use some boost before the amp.
