I just picked up a Audio technica at-2020 condenser microphone for recording my classical guitar. But the levels are too quiet in podfarm, I have the microphone +48v boost on, and put a clean amp on podfarm full volume, it was still way too quiet. the levels only reached up to -30db in podfarm (the input was a bit lower around -40). When i added gain it destroyed the sound quality, but i got a bit more sound. I'm not sure what to try next. I really need some help.

I have a Pod ux2
podfarm 2.5
AT 2020 condenser mic
mixcraft 6

I added pictures of the levels and the amp i was using for reference.

Well the drive is at zero.

 

Also, I would try some of the preamps and maybe a compressor or tube drive

Where it says REC: Tone A, click on the +18dB booster.  I had the same issue with my microphone.  The raw input of the microphone is much weaker than, say, an electric guitar, so they incorperated this signal booster.

 

Hope it helps!
