I have an EMU Tracker Pre as my Audio Interface (to Cubase Artist 6).
I need to record electric guitar via direct input, and I have managed to do this, but it’s so loud that I have to turn down the recording level so much that, A) I fear I’m going to be holding back when play to avoid clipping, and B) I’m turning it down so much to avoid clipping that I’m losing dynamic range.
Attached is photo of how I’ve achieved sound input so far.
That’s an ordinary guitar lead plugged in to 1L. Cubase is set to use that input as a mono source.
What are my options, folks?
