I have to much gain on my basedrumchannel and my overhead channels. I use a Mackie sr24-4 board, atm25 basedrummic. and rode nt5 as overheadmics. I use the Mackies inserts as direct outs to my soundcard which has 8 balanced inputs. I can't place the basedrummic. inside the basedrum, cause the signal is just to hot, even with the gain fully down! If placed a few meters outside the basedrum its ok.,but thats not the sound I want. The same with my overheadmics (don't worry I didn't place them in the basedrum). If I place them behind the drummers head, the signal is just to loud, so it distorts when the drummer hits his floor or snare. There are no switches to reduce the signal with 10 or 20 db. What to do?
