FireStudio Mobile & FireStudio Project » External preamp with firestudio project » Go to message
I've experienced the same issue. I recently purchased the Focusrite ISA One. I'm running XLR to 1/4 TRS from the external preamp to the interface. The gain on the fire studio is turned all the way down. This gives me clean sound but insufficient levels. When I increase the gain on the firestudio it distorts the signal. I record in Logic Pro and my work-around has been to create a bus track equipped with gain plugin to boost my low signal. Then I record using the bus as my input. Logic's gain doesn't distort or color the sound like the preamps on the firestudio. This is not an ideal solution but I've only had the preamp for one day. I'll let you know if something else develops as I continue using it. Hope this helps...
