Compared to what most of you normally discuss here, this is small time stuff, but I'm hoping that I can get some much needed assistance. I am a drummer, which makes me inherently inept at "tech" stuff. lol Actually, in the past I have recorded drum tracks on my Boss 8 track dig using a Roland V-Pro kit and they have turned out fairly well. I am now attempting to record tracks using the same Boss unit (BR 864) and a newer V-Pro kit. The older kit was an early V-Pro model that utilized the Roland TD-10 Sound Module. The newer V-Pro kits have the TD-20 module. Since attempting to cut tracks with the newer V-Pro set-up, I have had issues getting the proper levels and the tracks are ending up distorted as all get out. If (by following the instructions for input level in the Boss manual) I set the Input Level where it doesn't peak out, the overall level seems WAY too low- even with the MASTER fader all the way up. I was originally running the V-Pros through a Mackie 12 ch mixer (1202 VLZ Pro), as I can fine tune the drum sound much more than by only using the built-in mixer on the Roland TD-20. Thinking that I was just complicating things by running through the Mackie, I ran straight from the TD-20 into the Boss, but this did not solve the issue. I've tweaked all of the obvious (obvious to me anyway) - the master level on the V-Pros, the levels on the Mackie, etc... - and can't get it right. I'm prob missing something that's obvious to someone who knows this stuff, but it's eluding me and hence, making me crazy. Seems like it should be so simple, even for a drummer. MUCH thanks in advance for anyone who can take a few moments to give some suggestions.
