My gear is setup to record into my PC. All works well, except that my input is extremely low (as seen within my DAW). Do I need an amp to boost my signal just before it enters my PC? Here's my setup: Microphone (Shure SM58S) --> Mixer (Behringer Xenyx X1622USB) --> PC Win 7, recording with GoldWave software (using USB cable from mixer to PC) I've tried boosting the fader on the microphone channel. The input in my DAW is still low! I've tried boosting the master fader on the mixer's main output. The input in my DAW is still low!! I've tried boosting the input levels within the Win 7 interface. The input in my DAW is still low!!! I've tried boosting the input levels within my DAWs (GoldWave) interface. The input in my DAW is still low!!!! So, would I need to include an amp somewhere in my signal chain? If so, would it be PRE-mixer or POST-mixer? If it's POST-mixer, do you know of any that can receive a USB input (because my mixer uses a USB output) and also output via USB (because my PC uses a USB input)? Please feel free to post any solution you can think of. Thanks!!
