My maximum level of recording from Audio Interface is -6 even if I'm screaming into the mic. I do use XLR mic with Focusrite 4i4 3rd gen (tried as well steinberg ur22c and basically FCPX can record only in Mono or stereo with only one channel.
I cannot choose gain from the app as it's graded out. If I use my old USB microphone - everything works.
Someone had similar situation. How do you record VO with non USB mic?
I use AKG 314 with Focusright 4i4 3rd gen (tried Steinberg UR22C as well.
I've asked Steinberg as well but it's complete silence from their part, combined with worst software from the 2008 I was thinking that there might be a problem, but no...
I wrote an email to Focusrite last night, but as it's Cover 19 times, I do not expect quick reply.
I will buy a splitter Y and will try to record a stereo from 1 mic, but at least it will put 2 same mono signals into one file.
Assuming you have phantom power (without which the mic would basically be inaudible) some mic pres/audio interfaces have more gain or input sensitivity than others. Have you tried using this combo with other DAWs (Logic, Pro Tools, Audition, Audacity)? Is this something that is unique to FCPX?
