Helix dry signal on USB 7 too hot?

Recommended Posts

So with Helix recording into Logic Pro X - I record dual tracks (Helix stereo track on 1/2 and the dry track on USB7). For all I know, there is no way to control the USB 7 volume other than the guitar pad input? The reason I ask is the signal is way to hot. I am using pre fader metering to check levels in Logic Pro X as per instructions in this video Pre Fader Metering

 

My track is basically full blown clipping at 0DB like so: even reducing the gain on the track inspector by -30 db is not solving the issue.

 

How would one rectify this?

Turn down the volume on your guitar?

Well, with a guitar providing a signal this hot, it'd possibly be the best idea to use the Guitar In Pad. Too bad it's a global setting and hence will affect all your patches, but still, I would do this. There's no better times than these to re-adjust your patches.

Fwiw, if the hottest of all your pickups never exceeds 0dB, even when banging all strings full stop, there's no need to worry.
