I recently switched from logic to cubase and so far i really love it. I am using a focusrite 6i6 2nd edition scarlett as an audio interface. My question is the following: I am currently using focusrite input 1 (which has preamp) for a mic and preamp input 2 (which also has a preamp) for my guitar. I have connected my kronos keyboard with inputs 3 and 4 (which are line inputs with no gain or preamps). When i record audio with kronos in cubase i am peaking around -12 dbs with the kronos gain all the way up. Therefore i wanted to get a little bit more gain to make the signal from korg kronos hotter. I know i can use the pre-gain from the mixconsole for the kronos audio track, however i also realized that the volume/gain goes up when i pull up the track waveform at the main window. I cannot really understand the difference between those two in cubase? What is the difference between pulling up the waveform volume or using the pre-gain in mixconsole. Also will adding gain inside the daw will affect a digital signal from a keyboard like kronos?Would you guys suggest to use external preamplification to make the keyboard/kronos signal hotter before recording in cubase. I am beginner so please cope with me!
