I have plugged some stuff into the audio in of the micro korg, such as a volca beats, but the audio coming from it is nowhere near loud enough, despite being turned up to max on both devices.

The keyboard sound just drowns out the sound of the beats

Is there any way to make the audio in go louder? or a way to reduce to sound of the keys so it at a good level with the drum machine?

There is a big chance I am doing something wrong - Thanks in advance for any suggestions or feedback Smile

Hi,

Near the audio in input, there are also volume controls at the back of the board. Did you put these to maximum?
Also use mono cables.

Worst case, you could try the mic position switch for audio in 2, but start then with the volume control at the back to minimum.

Reducing the sound of the keys is also possible, but unfortunately, it is a setting per program... It is as simple as reduce the amp level of both timbres.

Have fun

Thanks - changing the switch to Mic and dialling back down the volume did it? not sure the sounds quality is the greatest, but it does work:)

Of note is that the Volca Beats has a particularly quiet output, noticeable when connected next to other Volcas.
