Recording guitar with fast track pro help?

Post by sjkuessel » Wed Jan 26, 2011 5:34 pm

I need some help recording guitar into live 7. I got a fast track pro and installed all the drivers. When i record into live it sounds horrible! I go through a Boss ME25 effects processor. Listening to the signal through my amp it sounds great. If I listen to the signal through headphones on the fast track pro it sounds great. Nice and clear and crisp with no clipping or unwanted distortion. However when I play back what I record it sounds muddy, way to much bass and clips and distorts. Anybody now what I'm doing wrong?

Check to see if you're clipping at any stage, and try turning down the preamps on the Fast Track Pro.
