Hi all, I'm a newbie to recording, and I've got this problem. I use an triggered drumkit (mesh heads + ddrum triggers) to rehearse at home and record drumtracks. The problem is that my Alesis DM5 seems to send a far too loud signal to my Samson MDR624 mixing desk, even so that when I turn the gain off, it still gives a loud signal. I like to play along with tracks on my pc, and mix it in with the drums, but the problem is that I get occasional "cracking" sounds from the drums. I cannot seem to find a way to make the input sound from the Alesis softer, and still be able to get a decent volume from the desk. Does anyone have any experience with this problem, and if so, does anyone have a solution? I never had this problem with my old Yamaha DTX and a Behringer desk? Thanks for any help.
