When i am recording with the U87 through the M5 the output signal (vocal) is too loud. When i am singing (normal) close too the microphone.. i get a distortion..
I always have too press the switch -20DB on the avalon and then turn the level too 42 DB.. too get a good vocal recording. Then it's possible for me too sing very loud or normal and also having a nice recording without distortion!
Is this the right way to do it ? Am i not losing any magic from the microphone by turning on the -20db switch.. ?
