    4cm - Volume Level

    I've found best results for inputs at about 50%, but feel free to play around. The output 1 is your master volume (goes into your efx return) so it's a convenience thing but also means you get your amp tone at any volume you choose, since you're not moving the amp volume or gain settings
  70. flash6969

    4cm - Volume Level

    Not familiar with the Marshall but you'll need to play with both input & output volumes in the IO menu. Make sure inputs are set to around 50% & output pads are at 12db (this will improve signal to noise ratio). Set out 2 knob to max & output 1 knob at about 2pm. This becomes your master volume
