GR-1 Volume of Live Sampling

Hi fellows,
i have issues with the volume of live sampling, which is quite low maybe due to my interface (Behringer UCA222).
I have an iphone plugged in it and even with max volume and 2.00 record level during sampling, the amplitude is far lower then every other sample. Any ideas for me?

Would it be possible to have some kind of normalize function in the unit ?
And it would also be very handy to have a simple trim sample function, although i read here in the forum that you decided against it (for what reason?).



  • Hi Jörg,

    Hhhmm, if the signal level is very low, then a normalize would cause heavy quantization errors. The sound quality wouldn't be the best..

    We have the UFO202 here. Just hooked it up. If I put my macbook's headphone volume to max, the signal level is good on the GR-1. Tried also on my android phone: also good signal level at max volume. I know the UFO202 is not exactly the same as the UCA222, but I think the internals are the same?

    Sample trim won't be included. The GR-1 was not designed as a sample editor. You can set any start position you want using the main slider. Same goes for loop positions. If you really want to edit the sample, you can export it to USB and edit it in your DAW or Audacity.

  • I'm having the same problem with low level recording. I've tried Focusrite 18i8 and Sound Devices MixPre 3 (which is the one I'd use if I can) and with audio maxing out in each I get the same low level in the recording - I'm judging this by looking at the waveform on the screen.

    I don't know what bit depth the incoming audio is, but if it is >16, this wouldn't make it quiet, would it?

    Are there any settings that might affect this other than those in the Record page?
  • A bit disappointing, really. I guess I can record in to get low volume to test different sounds out, but to be usable I'll then have to record into the computer, transfer to USB then put in on the GR-1. Not a great workflow.
  • Still the same with me here, too. Not usable with the Behringer... far too low signal gain :-(
