Audio recording monitoring sound level problem

(I’m not 100% sure if I should post this in a more specific sub btw)
also first time posting here :slight_smile:

I’m currently trying to record bass guitar to overdub on a song as a cover. The recording sound is fine and the monitoring levels are shown normally, but I can barely hear my playing from the monitors. Even at full volume I can barely hear my bass, but the monitor levels are shown fine.

I am using a Behringer sound card, 2 cables connected to my monitor speakers, the USB connected on my PC. I have monitor volume on the card on full, and also clicked “Direct Monitorring”. There’s no latency on the recordings at all however. I’ve also tried connecting the auxiliary cable of my monitor speakers to the PC and also to the ‘headphones’ monitoring input on the sound card.

It seems odd that I wouldn’t be getting any latency problems but sound is barely audible only at 100% full volumes. I somehow solved the monitor issue a few months ago and got a latency problem instead.

Thanks for any potential advice :smiley:
