Hi this is my first post and I want to thank you guys in advance for any feedback. I'm certain I'll learn a lot. I do voiceovers and this is my mic chain. Miktek c7e/Vintech x73i/Purple Audio mc77. Of course the Vintech does not have nput/output meters. I was told by the manufacturer in order to set up the x73i properly, crank the output volume and to adjust the input level selector. The issue I have is that the output level that I arrive at once this is done, is very low going into the mc77. Does this matter? Hopefully this won't confuse you. The input level on the mc77 pegs only 20% of it's vu range. Am I wrong in thinking that the input level should be strong and tap at least tap 50% on the mc77's vu meter? Or does this not make as much of a difference as I expect?
