I’m having a weird issue in Audacity 3.0.2 on Windows 10. Not 100% sure when this started. I am running an AT2020 XLR through a Focusrite Scarlett Solo and the audio input is being hard clamped to -6 dB maximum, only when recording in mono with this device in Audacity. I tried a USB mic and a virtual microphone and both reached 0 dB, and my AT2020 will also reach 0 dB in Adobe Audition. I would prefer to keep using Audacity over Audition so I would appreciate any help in solving this. Troubleshooting steps I’ve already done are to reset preferences in Audacity and do a clean reinstall - no luck in both cases.
Thanks! If it’s always worked that way I suppose I didn’t notice before, and got curious when I noticed other devices weren’t being clamped to -6 as well. I’ll keep an eye on my interface while I work then. Appreciate the insight!
