So I make sure I was in 24-bit and i also enabled the independent monitoring while i was in the preferences and that as useful as well and i am now getting the sound i was looking for, thank you! I am still working with my record levels if you could give me some tips:
In Mastero phantom is on and i am recording my normal singing at around 48, then my more intense singing i brought it down to 40 to avoid peaks. My line out level was kind of low though at -13.
I am having a hard time balancing my mix sounds when i have a lot of piano and percussion then vox. My basic confusion is setting the line out level through mastero, setting the volume level in logic which should be what? and how do i know what i am hearing in my headphones isn't too loud or to soft and my mix level is where it should be as far as the master mix fader and logic's output volume?
Thank you so much for your help, i didn't know people with real answers were out there! : ) I appreciate it so much, it is really pushing my progress along with the tutorials when i run into a problem.
