Weakest Link ( mixer )



I am somewhat new to the recording game. I puchased what I thought was a great mixer for the money (I am poor by most standards). All of my other studio devices operate at +4 singnal level,effects,mics recorders, accept the mixer -10? I am unable to get a hot signal into my recorders with distortion. I looked into puchasing preamps for all 16 sends but at that point I would be better off buying a new mixer. Does anyone know of a solution for this or am I just going to have to puchase a new console?

Hmm.. you need to find out if is really incompatible with your other gear. If so, it's gotta go!

If it's really incompatible you should sell it. You should be able to turn down the output of most +4 gear. The other option is to get a whole bunch of -10 to +4 converters.
