Howdy, I have a 4 band parametric EQ (audio arts) that has dual inputs, one instrument level (which is WAY too hot for my active basses, distorts easily-way too sensitive) and a balanced line level input which is completely inappropriate. I'm wondering if there is some way I can build an inline attentuator inbetween the bass and this device to pad the signal down a good 10db. This should be rudimentary stuff for those who understand this area. Do I need a resistor? I want something that will perserve the quality of the signal of course. Thanks.
