get a cloud lifter - or another brand.
This will get you more gain from the mic into your pre amp and will help.

Most people don't realize that the majority of budget gear has 10cents worth of parts in the mic pre - therefore they sound crappy when gained up.

If you are really into the sound of the (very low level) SM7B - then best to invest in a good preamp to get plenty of clean gain, and then after the mic preamp - go line in to your A to D convertor.

Found this on 1st search for cloudlifter!

There is no -18dbFS myth - you have a very low level mic, and you also must have a mic pre that is not suitable for low level mics.
