Ive been facing some issues when recording with my Ibanez GRG 170DX. I noticed this recently, as I got a Scarlett Solo interface. When I record my guitar, the input volume from the lower E string is much more than the high E string. If I increase the input volume on the Solo, the parts with the low string starts clipping.
Because of the lower volume on the high strings, tapping and hammer on and pull offs don't sound clear.
I read in some places that it could be because the pickups need to be remagnetized. I haven't changed my strings in a few months, so could that also be a cause?
PS: My guitar is around 6 years old.
Edit: I checked Reaper, and even tried Audacity, this issue persists on both of them. I even plugged in my guitar to my Zoom G3X processor and the issue exists here as well, so the issue is probably with my guitar and not my interface.
Update: I changed my strings to a new set, theres a lesser difference now, but its still there, if Im picking with the same force, the low E string gives a -12dB output but the high E string gives -18dB output.
