Hi all and apologies in advance.
Any audio I record sounds very low on playback, regardless of input source (Passive mike, active mike with PP, guitar etc) despite sounding fine during monitoring.
Flows something like this…
Cubase Pro 8.5
Recording into Tascam US - 4x4 (gain just below peak, PP selected where needed, line type selected correctly)
Input levels set just below peak in Cubase
Monitored sound is fine through speakers and phones and can record fine against previously laid tracks.
(For what it’s worth waveform on track can vary in size regardless)
Go to playback to listen to new audio track and it’s very quiet. Particularly noticeable on vocals. Normalise will help but I’m having to Normalise everything and don’t want to.
Tried a scurry through forums etc but to no avail.
Any other suggestions gratefully received, probably something obvious
