My issue is that when I record distorted guitars (mainly), when having 2 tracks of guitars playing at once most of the time there are very loud tearing/clipping sounds as if the volume is too high…how do I solve this?
What do the record/playback meters show? What is your set-up for recording guitars, amp/miced, direct input/pedal ?
You can try compression to smooth them out.
sounds like you are not using the TRACK MIXER just the MASTER MIXER - open track mixer and set each track to correct level -
