i have a sm-57 into a m-box. pretty simple. i just want to set it up so i can record some clips of my amps and to practice and stuff. for some reason i have no clue what i am doing because it sounds like crap no matter what. really thin, constantly clipping, and volume is extremely low. i have the mic plugged in. set to mic level. i adjust the knob until it clips, then i back it off slightly so it wont clip anymore. i set up the track to record. press record. play. then i go to playback and it sucks. am i missing a critical step that is causing me to sound like crap (besides the lack of talent) ive also tried like 1000 different mic placements. all the same problems.
