Hi, I have recently got a Focusrite Sapphire 6 USB audio interface. I have followed the instructions to connect to Live 9 settings etc but am having problems with the recording, When I arm a track, it clips out almost immediately. I have all my volume levels at minimum but is still clips out. I've spent all afternoon trying to find an answer to this but have got nowhere. If anybody has any suggestions that may help with this problem, I would be grateful.


Kind Regards.

    have you also checked your input in other daw's? if it doesn't occur in other software the problem is somewhere in ableton, otherwise you can rule out software problems and look for the problem in your hardware.

    are you sure you set the right settings at your focusrite. gain low, intr. button when recording a instrument, phantom power off when not using a powered mic.
