I'm recording a bass direct into my DAW and getting a lot of clipping/popping/overloading, and I can't quite figure out where the problem is. To get the particular sound I want from this bass part, I have to hit the strings quite hard--harder than I normally play. Going direct into my Focusrite 2i2's instrument input, I would get pops on the pick attack.
As I'm new to this forum, I'd like to give a little background about me. I'm a hobbyist who doesn't record/mix/master for commercial use at all.
Just a hobby that went completely out of hand and used solely to track rehearsals and make a "decent" recording once a year.
- 2 electric guitars running signal through pedal boards
- Semi acoustic guitar, during rehearsals tracked via jack, during recording sessions tracked using mics
The laptop has an 1/8" combination mic/headphone jack. Commonly used for headset mics for gaming. Im presuming this is a trrs connector.
Im thinking i can hooking up my sure beta 57 to it via one of the adapters in the link below. Im just wondering if i should expect this to work.
Otherwise ill have to dig out my 11r and tabketop rack, or order a basic interface.
I have a Chilton M10 desk which I run my MPC, synths etc into and currently work entirely OTB.
I’m looking to encorporate a DAW into my setup for mixing, but still have the desks eqs, auxs at my disposal as it sounds really nice.
- Archtop Guitar
- PreSonus 2 channel BlueTube
- Allen & Heath ZED 10FX Mixer
- Canon XA10 Camcorder
When we right click on the AUX slot either in Track Editor or in Object Editor, 3 options appear: AUX/Output (Direct), AUX/Output (Pre) and AUX/Output (Post).
I know and understand very well about 'Pre' and 'Post', but I don't know what mens 'Direct'...
What is this? Where it is located in the plugin chain?
Thanks in advance!
