OK! I have a powerbook G4 running, logic - using a presonus Firepod (already has pre's - poor ones). BUT i want to get a VMP4000e. The only way I know of getting the signal from the Seb pre to my computer is through the Firepod's channels 3 through 8 using 1/4 TRS input.. - so it runs instrument/mic>VMP400e>Firepod>DAW I was told to turn the gain on the seb's up and the gain on the Firepod down?? is this correct? OR is there an easier way of doing it - prefererably whilst spending as little $$$ as possible! ANY HELP GREATLY APPRECIATED!
