VT Bass DI - Bad XLR out?

    I recently tried to use my VT Bass DI's XLR Out into an M-Audio Fast Track USB's XLR input intended for use with a dynamic microphone. Even with the drive and level nearly all the way off, and trying the -20dB pad, the recording was horribly distorted and sounded like severe clipping. Using the XLR out from my amp's head into the FastTrack, I can get a good sound as long as the gain isn't up too high. This leads me to wonder if there is an issue with my VT Bass DI's XLR out. Anyone have a similar issue?
