Question about M-Audio MXL 990/991 Recording Mic Duo and Audio Buddy Package Microphone
Hello matt. It may be a case that a preamp will help. It will boost the level coming off a mic. The ART preamps have tubes, are inexpensive, AND some of them have a pretty useful compressor into the bargain.
I use the Presonus TubePre, and that has worked well. You can run it pretty clean, or you can drive the tube a little harder for a bit of tube compression/distortion.
If I was buying today, I'd be inclined to consider the Presonus AudioBox USB 2x2, which would be a brand new interface that should also function as a preamp. About $150, so more than the ART's, but might be a great all-in-one solution. It might also be economical, if your M-Audio piece isn't a good match for the equipment you have.
You've probably already done this, but it might be worthwhile to patiently work your way through your recording chain and see if there's anything set lower than normal, including outputs on the keyboard and the inputs to the Mac, including the main Audio preferences and the GarageBand Audio preferences... Check for pad switches on your equipment, anything that might be a simple fix...
