X32 as an interface with Logic Pro

I just got the X32 producer and  I am using it as the interface with Logic Pro . My recording levels on the individual tracks are pretty low. I am using sm58 mics and have the gain on the pre amps cranked all most all the way.
I need to increase the output from the X32 to Logic Pro. Any ideas?

Hi Kirk, welcome to the forums.

 

With normal routing, the USB sends for local or stagebox inputs are directly from the analogue/digital converters. The only way to increase the recorded level is to raise the preamp gains. The usual practice is to set the gains so the input meters peak at between -18dBFS and -12dBFS. This should give a reasonable recording level and leave enough headroom for performance variations.

Add a 'Gain' plugin on your tracks and increase it.

Select recorded regions and use 'Normalize Region Gain' and set the regions to peak at some number you like.
