PostSubject: recording with the m - box    Sat Oct 16, 2010 11:34 pm

i was wondering how to properly record vocals from the m - box into pro tools , kinda confused on how high to run the input on the m - box , ive been recording our vox keeping it in the green never going over - 10 db , just something some one told me to do , which was to always stay in the green , now i dont know if this is true because some one else told me to record as hot as possibe as long as you never clip ????? so my question is what a good db to record at going in ?

Mike they are both right in different ways. you want to record as hot as you can but not so hot you clip. This is how i have don it for years, I keep it between -6db and -3db. Now you will have to adjust the input level with each artist you record. You do this by adjusting the M-box input to get this level and leaving the pro tools mixer fader at 0db.. I hope this helps you fam.....

that helps out alot brahhh thanks , lets say the vocalist wants to hear him self while he lays down his vox , is it then ok to adjust the fader above 0 db until he can hear himself or is their another way of doing it so you don't have to adjust the fader above 0 db ?

Setting up a headphone mix bus is a good way of doing this...

Yes, you can adjust the fader to allow your artist to listen to his vocals louder or lower... HOWEVER.. you must set your session up for AUTO INPUT ONLY and PRE FADER METERING... Recording to listen = PRE FADER ... EDITING MIXING AND MASTERING = POST FADER ! Good luck
