This is my first post so be gentle! So hello and thanks for helping out.
I put my system configuration in my signature as I’ve seen suggested in some of the post that I’ve read. I hope it has enough information. Let me if there is anything I can add for future post.
So here’s my question:
I have everything installed and I’m able to do simple recordings of my drum kit as I play. So far so good! However, I notice on the “TRANSPORT PANEL” that the Audio Activity - Default Input Channel clips regularly in other words the box about the levels turns RED. So it looks like to me that the level coming from the Yamaha mixer over the USB connection is to high. Of course if I turn down all the mic on the mixer that level is OK, however I’m sacrificing sound quality on the board.
And I know that I can set the level for each track in CuBase my concern is the too “HOT” incoming line level.
So I guess here’s my real question:
- Is clipping at the Default input channel normal or is it a problem?
- Is there a way to control “lower” or “reduce” the incoming signal in CuBase or within the Windows 7 operating system?
Any help or instructions to reduce the clipping would be very appreciated.
