Hey guys, Ive been having some problems with my sey up. I have my equipment set up as follows. My snake inputs from the live room come into the patchbay(neutrik) TRS (which I changed from XLR) Then I patch it to my mackie 24/8 then from the mixer's direct out go straight to the audio card. Problem is when I hook stuff up direct to the macke, it sounds louder/better compared with going through the patchbay. All of my cables are balanced so Im not sure if I might have messed something up when I changed the connectors or I just aint doing something right. I would appreciate any help you guys can give. Thank you in anticipation for your time and help.
