    I'm trying to use the direct output of my svt-4 into my mackie 1402 mixer and through my pa speakers.

    Is it as simple as going from the direct out channel A to the input of the mixer? I do this and get nothing. I plug directly into the mixer from my bass and I get something, but when it comes to using my amp, nada. Are there any buttons/options I should press..whats the deal?
     
  2. I got bit by this the first time I tried using the DI on my SVT-4. There is an output level control for the DI in the middle of the front panel. Turn it up until the soundman is happy. I was told it sounded best turned up full.
