Can't adjust input level volume for guitar

Question

I am trying to adjust the input level (so it is in the green) for my guitar on TH3 and nothing is working. I have tried on my audio interface and that didn't work either. Any help is appreciated.

If your IF has an instrument input use that. Check to see if there are any buttons or switches to change the input level between line level and instrument level. If not then you'll need to use a preamp.

It depends on the interface, but this should not matter that much since the DAW records the input signal before the plug-ins.

Once recorded the clip gain may be adjusted as needed for TH3.

If you need more input level to TH3 to get the desired sound while recording, you can add a gain plugin ahead of TH3. An empty FX Chain will let you add 6dB.

As mentioned above you should be able to adjust your input levels within your I/F such that the signal displayed within CbB is between -18dB & -12dB peaking at no more than-6dB.

As an FYI I played around with TH3 a bit and it looks like they want the loudest chord you can play to be 0 dB. At that level I'm running around -2 or -3 dB. If you don't have any vsts on the track what is loudest level you get with that Line 6?
