Just recently I wanted to start recording my acoustic guitar with the UR-44 and a Acoustica AT-2020 cardioid condensor microphone. Thing is it seems I can hardly get a proper loud enough signal.
I have to set my input gain knob above 75% open and even at 100% it’s not overly loud. At this point my in my DAW I still have my line level-in at 0db and adjusting it to 12-18db woud make the input even more less.
I checked settings in dspmix and it’s default/off. I use a XLR-cable and I have phantom power on.
I’ve read many threads here on the UR-22 and UR-44 and while most indeed seem to say +75% gain is necessary there are others that complain about a too loud signal, so that does leaves me a bit confused.
I’m fairly inexperienced but it doesn’t seem right I have to record so hot plus I do hear when recording at 75-100% the noise level is unsatisfactory. I realise this question has been asked before but follow ups on topics are rather scarce so can people confirm this is normal for the UR-44 or could it be a defect?
