So I’m new with Cubase. I’ve successfully recorded several songs now and know my way around pretty well. I mic my guitar/drum amps into my Yamaha MG12XU mixer, then USB into Cubase 9 LE AI Elements on my pc Windows 10. However, when I set all volumes at the preferred level (at 0 to avoid unwanted distortion/clipping) on both my mixer and in Cubase, the recordings sound very clean and balanced, but the overall level is a bit low, especially after I export a file into an mp3 and upload into SoundCloud and other music sites. Can someone please advise me as to how I increase the overall volume of my recordings inside Cubase, without distorting it. Is there a quick easy process/tool to use?
thanks in advance!
