I'm using a Rode K2 and Peluso CEMC 6 to record a guitar thru my Sebatron into the TRS in's of the Presonus Firebox and then into my powerbook.
Here's my issue: Not enough input/recording volume. I've got the output on the Sebatron around 6 in hopes to get more volume, but I barely end up with any reading on the garageband meter, so I have to use a boosting effect in garage band or crank up the wav file with something like Audacity. This seems like a rig job, so I was wondering if anyone uses a sebatron with a Firebox and is able to get some good volume on the front end. The Firebox comes with this little mixer software, and all channels are cranked to "U", but still no luv.
If I add my mackie mixer to the chain I can get more volume, but then I introduce noise because that's another pre in the mix.
(btw, the reason I'm using Garabe Band instead of something like Cubase is because I only record like one track, maybe two, so I would imagine I don't need all the bells and whistles of the nicer software.)
