I play with my kemper to Zoom uac2 interface into reaper.
I am having a devil of a time getting a good volume for good sounds both while playing and when recording.
Since the guitar goes into the kemper first, I just select the main output at -18db as I heard that was good somewhere(?) the "direct output" goes to just -10db as I can't select it by itself.
The interface is then set just below clipping levels.
So far I have kept the reaper level at 0db as it sounds awful below that.
What is a good way to go about doing this? It also supremely grinds my gears that my monitoring output is dramatically different than my recording output volume.
Could you please walk me through this as if I was a dumb 5 year old?
