How can I lower the noise/hiss on my Morphagene

Not sure if It's always been like this since I haven't used it in a little while, but I seem to be getting a lot of noise on the recording, I auto level the audio and keep it to a reasonable level on the source of the audio, but the auto level just instantly brings a lot of noise in the background but without auto level the audio is too quiet... not sure what to do?

My morph is as quiet as a mouse. Do you mean using my samples off the card or recording with the morph itself?
Are you sending a eurorack signal into it? Sounds like no if it isn’t hot enough. Don’t use the auto level imo. Make your source louder.

I’ve had the same thing happen with a microphone plugged into an Mutable Ears and then into the Morphgene. When recording quiet sounds there was not enough level so I engaged Auto Leveling. The noise was very significant, and unusable. Louder sources or mic into a cleaner higher gain mic pre mic help.
If preparing files externally (Pro Tools) what would be a good level to master the files for the Morphagene?

I've been using "hot" mixes of songs of mine I've done as source material, with peaks hitting 0dB, and they've worked great with the morphagene. With nothing patched the Overall output volume is sometimes a bit lower than a straight oscillator, but noise hasn't been a problem. You might want to consider doing your morphagene prep in Reaper, tho, as markers made in there automatically work as splice markers in the morphagene without any additional fussing about.
