I'm wondering where I will be setting the input level gain


Recommended Posts

For years I just had my X3 plugged directly into the back of my computer, and I think I set the input gain for recording with the Tone Volume knob on the X3.


Now I have my X3 plugged into my Focusrite Scarlet 18i8 audio interface, and I'm wondering how I would set the input gain for recording.


It has 4 XLR and quarter inch combo jacks on the front, and if you use those you can use the knob above the jack to set the input gain. But I will not be using those jacks. I got the left and right outputs from the X3 plugged into quarter inch inputs on the back of the audio interface.


Would I still use the Tone Knob or maybe the last (the fourth knob) knob on the X3 to set input gain?
