Hey guys. New to the forums here and kind of recording in general. I've scoured the internet all over the place and can't seem to find any good resources on a proper way to input and record a Boss RC-505 loop station to a computer to record cleanly. What I'm trying to do is record primarily vocals and beatboxing, so no instruments. Right now I am using a Shure SV100 microphone to record the lyrics plugged into a pretty dinky M-Track M-Audio audio interface which converts it to a digital signal for Ableton Live. From there, I put the effects that I want on my voice (EQ or compression) and it then plugs into the RC-505. Then all the loops and vocals go out back to the audio interface to the computer to be recorded. I feel like this is not very streamlined, namely because I don't currently have an effects pedal so I'm forced to do a lot of the effects through Ableton. My problem is that the recording that comes out just doesn't sound quite right and has a weird distortion on the bass (No it's not clipping) and other areas. Is there a better way to do this? I'm also having some issues figuring out which knobs to turn all the way up when recording for maximum analog control. My first few attempts to record, the end product was really quiet. Any help would be appreciated, I'm sorry if I'm not explaining things in that much detail, like I said I'm new to this.
