Solved - Wrestling with Volume > Using Windows Audition > Zoom P8 Audio Interface > Shure SM58

Thought I would share this. 

I have been wrestling with getting audio volume configuration for a long time. 

I was using a Mackie mixer for a while and the quality was excellent, interfacing it with Audition in real time on my PC was a pain.

So I switched to a Zoom P8 audio interface (mixer) ... 

The Zoom P8 is a bad ass little mixer - designed for podcasters, all the settings I needed, but simple to use. I also use it for instructional voice overs. 

The P8 configured effortlessly to my new PC - Dell i7 / SSD / 16 gb.

BTW - NEVER try and do audio without the latest equipment. I know we are all on a budget but I have NO issues right now and it was well worth it.

Anyway, the problem was that my volume was super low when recording and I had to constantly mess with it in post-producton.

Finally, I went to Windows > Audio > Mic settings an noticed it was at 50% volume - So I turned it up all the way. Well, that's all it was. 

I can now modulate my audio level in real time with my mixer and Audition and all is good.

Don't ask me a bunch of super technical questions cuz I'm not an audio engineer... Glad to help if I can tho  🙂 Just a guy trying to get the job done!
