I am quite new in recording analog synth the proper way.
To get a signal that is loud enough, I have put my preamps of the audio interface (RME FireFace) to a higher level.. But now, in the recording there is a swoosh/noise in the background, that gets very loud when I am using upward compression.
So, how to fix this problem?
I think, I have to turn down the input level of my audio interface? Right? And then I have to use a preamp plugin to get it louder again within the DAW (I am using Logic)?
Or how would you fix this issue?
Thank you for your help
Edit and P.S.:
A noise gate does not solve the problem. It might kill the background swoosh when the synth isn't playing anything. But when the synth plays something, you can hear it again.
