Gain staging: Sm7>Cloudlifter>GAP Pre73>Focusrite saffire 24

I'm wondering how to properly gain stage my external Pre 73 JR with my Cloudlifter into my Saffire Pro 24 DSP, Mix Control involved. I currently have the SM7 connected to the CL1 and the out of the CL1 into the main combo input of the GAP via XLR, the out of the GAP is set into the line input 3 on the back of the saffire via XLR to TRS cable. I usually have to set the gain on the GAP up to 50 or 55 to get a decent signal with the output around 10 o'clock, even with the cloud lifter. Is this normal? The signal can be less than clean. I've been told to set the gain in Mix Control on the line input to about 4.5 to attain unity gain.

Mix Control as the software from Focusrite?
