OK I've got a semi-ridiculous situation and looking for a solution. I'm working a job where the signal I'm sending to the board (only the board) needs to be hotter. The level from the bass is fine, in fact it's fairly hot. The scenes on the console have been written already (i.e. the bass gain for each tune has been set and the soundman is too ummmm....occupied to rewrite them). So that level is set, the only way I am getting a hotter signal to them is to use the post send on my amp and then crank the gain. Of course, they would like a hotter signal still, so now I'm being asked to "play harder" Yeah, it's as stupid as it sounds. So, I need a DI with a decent amount of clean gain so I can send these fine folks a signal hot enough to melt things apparently. My first though is a SansAmp Para driver. It offers 12dB of gain which should work, but before I get it I'm looking for suggestions here. Criteria: clean gain (no or minimal coloration), XLR out & phantom powered, parallel 1/4" out, no rack mount Ideas?
