It's most likely a combination of the mic and mic placement. Try moving the mic around, at different angles, distances and anything you can think of.

Yep, that's how you do it. The MIDI mapping is different in SSD4 than it is in Superior. To fix this, when you open SSD4, go to map conversion and pull up the SSD4 to Superior map converter.

Those are also only about 2 dB of gain reduction. I might do the test again and slam the compressors.

Edit: I added two more tracks, labelled slammed. These have about 10dB of gain on them.

^That

And make sure you read what labels want in submissions. Some don't even take unsolicited ones, so just make sure you're giving them what they want, how they want it.

It's definitely worth it to purchase a better interface, imo. Check the intro to recording thread. It should have some good recommendations for interfaces.

You do need the track to play, otherwise PT will not be sending out the information to your pedal.
