Topic: Clean Monitoring but Distorted Recording with FF400 and Ableton
I am a total newbie to using RME products. I purchased the Fireface 400 and am having issues with my input signal and could use a little help.
Using My Headphones (Sony MDR-V6) i hear a clean signal speaking/singing into the mic (monitoring over headphones Ch.7/8 Front). The recording then sounds very distorted when played back. The Music Playback stays good and clean. So i assume there is something wrong with my input routing maybe.
I am using Ableton Live 8.2.1 with a Neumann TLM 102 direct into Front Mic 1 (FF400)
I am running OSX 10.6.4 and have installed the latest driver FF400 2.87 for MAC. (Firmware Tool showed Up-To-Date too)
1 Mic Phantom Power on / level +25
7-8 Phones -10dBV
Matrix and Mixer
Any Help would be much appreciated!
Many thanks in advance.
