    Hi and welcome to the apple discussions.

    How do you monitor your Input(s)?

    To record you presumable click the "R" button on the track and then the record button to start. Right? At the time you click the "R" (or "I") button logic monitors the selected channel and if you have your Speakers in the same room as the mic it will result in an feedback. Solution is to use an headphones or to mute sound.

    +If i am in the booth with headpones on and speak into the mic it sounds like i am 100 ft away from the mic.+

    And this only happens with Logic? Then the problem is Logic! and no additional Equipment can fix this.
    Unfortunately i dont know what causes Logic to this strange behaviour. Sorry.
    Maybe there is an reverb plugin or effekt in the signal path. Did you checked this? Maybe the problem is gone if you make an new project with only one track.

    I'm presuming you turned software monitoring "off" in Logic audio preference to monitor directly and only through your interface the record signal. To monitor via Logic you need a low disk buffer setting (also in preferences).
