    I bought the Radial ProD2 because I wanted more gain from the keyboards and another option into the converters over example, my Great River MP 2NV DI. Man, am I ever disappointed though. There is no difference in level and I don't even hear a difference is signal.

    38 years years at this, I have never used something like this for recording so I thought to give it a try. Its a nice build but the benefit I'm getting is 1/4 to balanced and the thru which is cool but I don't need that, really.

    Am I clueless on this? My levels on the keyboards and DAW are all cranked to 10 this way.

    Keyboards put out "instrument level", defined loosely. That's more voltage than mic level and less than line level. A passive DI like that normally gets connected to a mic input, so with instrument level input they typically output an appropriately low-ish signal level.

    right, I get it, thanks Bolder. Looks like I'm back on the MP 2NV. It sounded great thru that anyway.

    Just added a Nord Lead 4 to my keyboard arsenal and OMG, what an awesome synth. Its the bomb for USB midi programming and clocking to a DAW sync
