Default Mac Catalina 10.15.7/ID4 interface issue?

Sorry if this is redundant or been posted before. I searched various threads and didn't find what I was looking for. Is there an issue with Catalina 10.15.7? Reaper recognizes my ID4 interface but when I record the levels are way too low. The playback sound like my voice is being picked up by the built-in mic. Thanks for any feedback.

There's a bug introduced in 10.15.7 (and continues into the OS XI introduction) that can brick the firmware on any Mac. That means a brain dead logic board and the machine is a paperweight.

I'd recommend rolling back.

But your issue cannot be that (obviously, if the machine is running).

A bug that leads to reduced record level sounds like a stretch. Digital doesn't work like that. I'd look for a different root cause. (Analog domain stuff like a reduced level or reduced fidelity usually isn't a bug scenario. Digital hi jinks is usually a lot more glaring like stubborn silence or dropout laden garbled audio. I'm not saying "case closed" but that's my comment.)

You said "sound like my voice is being picked up by the built-in mic."
Was it? Maybe you literally accidentally had your built-in mic selected for your audio interface device?

Do you have the current driver for the interface? (If it's not class compliant)
Check an alternate input. (ie a different channel on the interface)
Try a different mic cord.
Try a different mic.
Rule that stuff out.

Default Drivers?

Are there drivers for the ID4 interface? If so, that might be the problem. There's no indication when I hooked up the interface and started recording that drivers were missing, no message. I contacted Audient to find out. Thanks for your help. Much appreciated.
