    Hello. I own an M-Box and im running PT 5.3. Im trying to figure out how come my recording volume level is so low. It doesn't even break the midway mark. Anyone else had this problem?

    Tell us everything that you are doing and all gear you are using during recording and we can probably help.

    Hi Mike,

    Are you mixing reference levels by sending a -10 source to the +4 inputs of the Mbox? Take a look at your "Hardware Setup" in the "Setup" menu and adjust it to match your source signal. Good luck!

    Which mic is it? Do you have the source button set to 'mic'?

    Plug into another channel - If nothing, plug another mic in - If nothing, change cables - If nothing... Uh... Play louder? Turn the mic around? You got me...
