      Hi there,

      I'm a beginner in music production. And there is a problem I'm having that I'm quite not sure how to solve.

      When I'm recording something, I want to lower the volume of the entire song and boost the volume of what I'm playing/ singing. On my Clarett 8Pre USB interface, there is only a volume switch for the entire thing. So if I try to boost it, I also boost the entire song. I have a feeling I need some buss trick or something here, but I'm not sure. Perhaps there is something really simple I'm not thinking about.

      Any tips?

        How many outputs does that Clarett have? I use A MOTU 828X going into a Presonus headphone mixer, and what I do is make a headphone mix on a bus and send that to one of the headphone outputs.


        In Short, the bus goes to "Output 3-4" (which is the first headphone on the Presonus) and I make a mix on the bus of how the listener wants it to sound.

          I have an Apollo, but what I have is a setup both in Logic using two busses (one for the entire mix, and one for the record enabled track) which I send out of my aux monitor outputs to a Mackie headphone amp. That way my singers can control their own headphone volume, and then I can control the levels between them and the mix to their taste.

          It sounds a bit complicated, but once you have it setup you can save it into a template and recall it when you need it.

          This is a pretty cool video that has some great ideas for setting up headphone cues
