Although I have managed to get the Shure X2U working with PP CS6.02, the trial and error method of selecting correct Audio Hardware and Audio Output Mapping is very haphazard and causes PP to crash almost every time. "Premiere Pro 6.0" appears in the Audio MIDI Setup program and I have the following selected:
Built In Microphone 2 In
Built In Input 2 In
Built In Output 2 Out
Shure Digital 2 In Drift ticked
Is there a method of being able to take audio level using the program meters before actual recording begins, or do I have to alter levels on the fly whilst recording the beginning voiceover to obtain the correct level?

I haven't ever used Premiere to record VO's. However to address your volume question I have always adjusted volume after the recording is over with. I use windows and in windows I have always just used windows built in volume controls for line in. I usually try to record everything as loud as possible without having a bunch of background noise. Then in post I simply set the levels where I want them for whatever my edit purposes are at the time. I'm fairly sure that Mac's probably have some sort of line in volume control as well although you might need to look it up.
I know you posted this a long time ago, but I'm having the same problem. Did you ever figure it out? I can get the mic to record directly to the timeline, but I can't see the levels in the audio mixer to check it before I record.
