Adjust USB mic gain

Postby covertnerd » Thu Jun 18, 2020 1:02 am

I'm using a Samson Q2U connect via USB to a laptop running Windows 10. Recording using Voicemeeter banana tape recording option. For some reason I can't adjust the gain on the mic. I want to also record to two separate tracks which I can do but I can't seem to adjust mic gain. See attachment, I have the gain turned down, but doesn't seem to affect the mic volume. Any ideas? Thanks

Hi. Since you are using virtual output B1 in Composite mode and you want to control the microphone volume with the hardware input 1 fader, you have to change PATCH COMPOSITE mode to POST-Fader by clicking the text next to the PATCH COMPOSITE section of Voicemeeter System Settings / Options window. The text says “Select PRE-Fader inputs…”. Doing so should change the mode from PRE-Fader to POST-Fader.

Thanks! Do I need to do anything with the "Patch Insert" section of the Voicemeeter System Settings / Options window?

PATCH INSERT is only for Virtual ASIO insert driver (whe you connect a DAW or VST Host on Voicemeeter Virtual ASIO insert driver).

Return to “Voicemeeter”
