I’ve just created a default “Piano and Voice” project. Vocals are working well, and midi keyboard is playing through Cubase with the default piano sound, but the sound levels for the piano are really low. The sounds levels are all the default zero, on the inspector, and in the Mix console. However, the sound level meters show the piano peaking at -20, and that’s hitting the keys fairly hard. I can push the levels up everywhere, but really, with all the sliders at zero, it should be louder than this, and more comparable to the voice. I don’t think it’s the MIDI keyboard, because I’ve been using it with Garageband no problems, and in Cubase, the little “Midi IN sound level meter” in the bottom right corner of the screen is indicating plenty of volume.
It’s not just the piano sound, as I’ve tried a few other HALion instruments, and they are also really soft.
What do I need to do to get proper levels from the instruments?
