I'm fairly new to the home recording world, and to GarageBand. Currently, I'm recording through an M-Audio FastTrack.
Basically, I'm having a problem with individual track volumes. I'll set a track for, say, guitar or bass, at about 0 dB. But while playing, the track will randomly jump up to the max, 6 dB. I've tried turning down the Guitar Gain and Output knobs on the FastTrack itself, as I thought maybe the signal was running too loud and maybe having an impact that way? I have no idea if that makes sense.
I'm running through a couple pedals (BBE Sonic Stomp and an MXR Bass D.I.+), which I'm thinking may be pushing the levels a bit high as well, but I don't see exactly why this would impact things.
Anyone have any suggestions? It's hard to record through things when my the track I'm recording suddenly spikes louder than the metronome.
