You can adjust the G-Track Pro’s internal analog input gain stage by using the G-Track Pro’s INSTRUMENT and MIC level control knobs. The purpose of the level, (or gain) controls are to optimize the amount of good signal relative to any associated noise. The G-Track Pro preamp includes a clip indicator to show when the input signal is overdriving or clipping the input.
To set a good level on the mic:
- Set the G-Track Pro up in front of the desired sound source and slowly raise the MIC volume control until you see the CLIP indicator light red.
- Then, turn the MIC volume control down until the indicator no longer lights red.
- Repeat the same process for the instrument. Play your instrument or line level device at a performance level, and slowly turn up the INSTRUMENT volume control until the CLIP indicator lights red.
- Then, turn the INSTRUMENT volume control down until the CLIP indicator no longer lights red.
- Once you set the INSTRUMENT and MIC input level control you shouldn’t need to change them during recording.
- Use the level controls in the computer software to set the balance between the instrument mic and stereo mix from the software.
Mic Input Levels cannot be adjusted in Windows Sound Control, manual Mic Control is full but the sound is low. Also listeners always complain the sound is too low and doesn't sound like me; others say sound is not brilliant, with low freq echo. All mic settings were tested, Fig 8, Omni, and Cardiod.
I would like to turn up the mic input level in Windows Sound Control or adjust the DB wich says 0.0 db but is not adjustable.
