I am just breaking into the world of home recording and purchased my first audio interface today. A Presonus Audiobox 2x2. I am using a laptop with Reaper. When I am recording I have to set the input level to close to max and get the volume to be "normal" when I play it back. If I keep my headphones on when recording it is loud, but when I am done recording and play it back it is much quieter. This means if I want to listen to tracks I already recorded while making another track I can't, because the volume is low on the playback and very loud on the tracking that is recording. What could be causing this? I lack the experience in recording to know why, but a couple guesses: 1)I was using low quality headphones, not studio (Don't see why that would affect volume, but worth mentioning) 2) Reaper IO volume settings are off/wrong 3) Laptop IO volume settings are off/wrong(would laptop IO volume even affect the IO of the audio interface? I doubt it since tracks on Reaper won't play through the laptop speakers with interface plugged in.) 4) I should be using the software that came with the audio interface instead of Reaper.
