Low volume in DAW from the front inserts -UR44

Everything about the UR44 is great, but I am struggling with one aspect & not sure what I’m doing wrong.

The inputs on the front 1-4 … I have to turn the gain knobs fully clockwise to get a decent recording volume. For example in slot 1 I use a Shure SM58 XLR/XLR.

In slot 3 I’ve plugged in my iPhone & again need to crank up the gain to get a decent signal. Does this sound right to you?

I’m using Cubase 7.5 on Windows 7 w/ the latest firmware/drivers.

Appreciate any feedback.


Are you using the XLR input or are you going in with a Jack? For the SM58, yes I would guess you would need the input between 12 and 3oclock, but that doesn’t sound right with the iphone as that is a line level signal.

Best Regards
