Thanks Dave, I’m not asking for anything but a higher signal to work with, just equal to the Virus or the A4 or the DN. That’s all I’m asking for. It’s a digital source.
It has nothing to do with Mixing levels/technique or analog recording levels. At the moment to match them I have my DAW strips and the DT channel levels to max and it still isn’t close to acceptable. I’m not asking for Elektron to alter any dynamics. I’m not asking for the channels to be turned into clipped square Waves. You have to have something workable to mix down from. At the moment it makes the faders pointless.
Again the main thing I do is stem recording for mixing the tracks at a later stage, turning everything down to whisper quiet is absurd. I can’t think of any other gear or plugin that would impose that.
If it was scaled inline with the other boxes, it would be fine and they aren’t hot signals by any means.
It feels like a Kafka play trying to get this simple issue across.
