Clip on track when enabling phantom power?

Using Studio One 4. When I enable phantom power on my mic (interface is id44 and mic is Roswell k47) and I set the track to record, I see a "clip" (the tiny square that shows on the track).

I know I can clear the red by clicking on it and after that I record just fine (no pop, crackles, or clips) but it annoys me that the first time I set the track to record I see the clip.

Does anybody else experience the same or have any tips to deal with it?

Make sure that the preamp gain is turned all the way down whenever you switch Phantom Power or whenever you connect or disconnect a mic.
