DI signal too strong

    I was doing some home recording last evening with my GK Backline 600 and at first I tried using the DI pre-eq so that I could get a nice clean signal. As much as we tried we couldn't get a signal what wasn't distorted even with turning the input signal to it's lowest setting on the digital interface. Is this a common problem with built-in DI's?

    Did you try pressing the -10db pad button?

    What are you running the DI into?

    yep- more info helps to troubleshoot.

    Also, many lower cost amps have built-in DIs that can be damaged by phantom power. Could be the issue.

    Was the interface set to line or mic?

    I see that it also has a pad on it, so you've got quite a few options to try out.
