    Hi All,Im a newbie here looks like a great site. Ive got the Tascam DP-24 DAW and have a problem with the mic input. Having plugged it in to the input and shouting into the mic so it doesn't clip for some reason with everything turned off trim channel fader and mains fader if I tap the mic it registers on the channel so any advice why that happens Thanks

    I'm pretty sure it's a routing issue.
    You see, if you don't mute the channel but put the fader down, if you have a auxiliary send which is pre-fader, it will still be active.
    Also, if you solo a channel, the meter usually show the gain stage to help you ajust it without hurting the PA.

    As pc said, it's likely that you have that channel soloed. Soloing is designed to show you levels whether the audio is muted or not.
