I've seen a ton of info about using this as a line-in interface. I've used it that way myself and it's great. Unfortunately, I've had tons of trouble using it to mike my amp. I get "hot" clipping no matter what I do, even on very low gain settings. Im using a 5 watt blackstar HT5R combo. It sounds fine, great even, in the room. What I've tried: To get the signal to sound less hot: I've tried most reasonable combinations of interface pre-amp, amp gain, DAW gain, amp volume and microphone placement. Thinking maybe something was broken: I swapped tubes, swapped the speaker to a celestion greenback, tried a different XLR, a different microphone, a different USB, I even bought another brand-new focusrite to test it out and return. Anyone who is using one of these for miking your amp. What is the secret formula to getting this bad boy to work. I found online info sparse for the solo.
