About a year ago I purchased the Focusrite Scarlett Studio which includes the 2i2 preamplifier. I love the headphones, quite like the condenser microphone, but have not been able to get a sufficient volume level through the 2i2. I have downloaded and installed the latest driver from Focusrite. What else should I be doing?

  • "sufficient volume level " - in or out? – Tetsujin Feb 28 '15 at 11:51
  • I use the 2i2 just for recording (with a microphone, not an instrument.) I have used it with a variety of dynamic and condenser microphones and the volume level is always very low. – Algy Pug Mar 1 '15 at 13:43
  • Have you tried changing between line and instrument with the front switches? Is the 48v switch turned on when you are using the condenser? – user13075 Mar 3 '15 at 0:37
  • if you digitally boost the signal after recording, what kind of noise do you have? Sometimes the waveform looks small but it is a clean recording. – he_artburns Mar 3 '15 at 17:00
