iPhone output to UCA222 input levels issue
When I record my iPhone with my laptop using Behringer UCA222 audio interface, there is an issue with audio levels.
- iPhone has volume output set to max, with for example Noir with Maxima in AUM and output at 0 dB (for test purpose in AUM).
- iPhone is connected to UCA222 with lightning to jack adapter and jack to RCA cable.
- UCA222 is connected to laptop with USB running Asio4all driver (bypassing Windows audio settings).
- In Ableton Live, iPhone recording is around -8db.
So it’s not possible to mix Ableton sounds and iPhone sounds in real-time easily with that 8db difference.
I suppose it’s related to line levels differences?
How to manage this? Using a preamp?
For those who record iPad/iPhone on laptops/desktops, what are your solutions to manage levels?
Thinking about buying another audio interface.
