I record via USB with a Mackie ProFx16 with Cubase. You can listen if you like:
Now it sounds like the level is too low, is that because I didn't master it? Or should I just try and crank the volume?
If I attempt to master it, can I learn to do it in Cubase? Or is there some other reason why my recording sounds like it has a lower level than a professional recording has?
Why don't I get a professional sound when my gear is almost professional? Is it individual tuning, many variables, or a single most important variable?
Please feel free to comment or answer anything about my jazz/house/techno attempt.
