i'm having some trouble getting a good signal when recording with the 001 - are the mic preamps below par ? my problem seems to be that i really can't get a good enough signal without really jacking up the input gain which really increases the noise level. i have started to record things using the mix windowplug-ins- running a filter with the 4-eq thing in realtime to weed out some of the highs but i'm worried by relying on it to record with and then later having to boost the signal a little and processing it through another filter (well actually doing this before boosting the signal) i'm worried that i'm losing too many of the high signal and harmonics even though i'm taking care of most of the noise. generally i end up doing -6 to -10db on the frequences above 11k or so to get rid of the noise. i am using shure 57s or 58s to record. any suggestions as to how to limit noise and get better signal ?
