Topic: Fireface 800 Loopback Volume Question
I'm running Logic 8.0 with a Fireface 800 (via firewire).
My principal stereo output in Logic is 1+2 which goes via the TotalMixer to my studio monitors.
Sometimes I like to output a channel in Logic via 3+4 so that it can be looped back in TotalMixer and re-recorded through another Logic channel with 3+4 as it's input. (Fairly basic stuff).
I have routed this in TotalMixer - the labels have turned red - and it works....
I have noticed that the re-routed signal is a few dB lower that the direct signal, and I have no idea why. I don't know whether this is something about Logic or something about the Fireface. I have tried playing with the Level In / Level Out gains in the Fireface Settings dialog box, but this has no effect. My faders in the TotalMix are all set-up correctly and stand at 0, so theoretically there should be no signal alteration at any point. My Logic is set up with Software monitoring, but the Logic faders are also set correctly to 0, and shouldn't be altering the signal.
As a sidenote, I have also noticed that my digital piano coming in on inputs 1+2 is much lower in volume than it should be - but perhaps that's a different problem.
Any help would be appreciated.
