I'm using Audiobox iTwo. When tracking guitars using monitors the tracking volume is very low.

Is there anything I should do to increase the volume for tracking?

Is there a certain volume I should have the interface set to?

I'm using eris 4.5 Monitors, what level should the monitors be while tracking?

On the front of the iTwo there is a Mix Knob, turn this more to the left to increase the ratio between input volume and software playback.

Also, look into Gain Staging. Here is a thread on the Studio One forum that discusses this:
