hi there! i'm using samplitude on a p4-3.06 with 1gb ddr machine with RME hammerfall multiface, an AKG C414-BTL-II microphone, and a custom made mic pre-amp (i'm not rich, i have funding from a record company ) now here's the problem- when i record stuff that are not very loud- like an acoustic guitar or classical guitar, I get a very low signal with a lot of background hiss. I tried all 4 polarity patterns on the mic. I double checked i'm using +4db balanced cables both on the outputs and the inputs. and still, only on the max +55db on the preamp I get a normal signal from an acoustic guitar. where might be my problem? thanks in advance, yoni.
