Hi Rounik, Thanks for the rapid response and advice. I do recall that logic records dry regardless of the effects plugins, thanks to the Logic Pro 101 tutorial video, however I noticed that when recording with vocal plugins such as compression the level meter peaks quite easily. Prior to adding the effect to the channel I set the recording input level on the interface so that it sits at about -6db on the meter as instructed in the logic 101 tutorial, but once I insert the vocal effects it tends to peak on the logic meter. At this point do I turn down the channel gain on the interface to compensate or leave that as I had it and just turn down the fader in logic? What I would like to know is does the dry recorded signal get affected by the peak caused by the insert effects and what is the best way to handle this? Thanks.
