I just purchased a brick a couple weeks ago. So far everytime iv'e set it up to use it on a project i end up not using it, becuase it is too "hot". I am familiar with the fact that it automatically adds +25db to the signal with the gain all the way down. I was just wondering if anyone else has had this problem and if so is there a way to possibly add a "pad" or something to the signal. So far ive tried using it on the bottom of a snare with a ksm 32 with the pad on the mic on going through a motu 2408mk3, With the gain all the way down i was clipping my converter. I know i had the digital gain down on the converter so that was'nt the problem. I tried moving the mic a couple more inches away from the snare , but still had a verry hot signal. I ended up not using it for the sake of too much bleed on that mic at a workable distance. so far this has happened to me in 3 different situations. Im thinking of taking it back. What should i do?
