Patchbay pads signal by -18db

Hi,

I was testing this old Tascam PB-32 patchbay by running a 1'4" cable from one of the back jacks into the line in on my console, then plugging a bass into the matching jack on the front. It worked, but it attenuated the signal by -18db when compared to the bass plugged directly into the line in on the console. Does anyone know if this is normal for Tascam patchbays?

Thanks.

Using drumsticks on M-Audio Axiom pads

Hello to all,
I have an Axiom 49 from M-Audio. Very nice product.
I was wondering if I could use a pair of drumsticks to hit the pads. I don't think really hit them hard...just enough to produce the sound i need. Will this make the pad ware out? or even make the pad malfunction? Any experiences? Any advices for the type of drumsticks to use?

Thank you very much in advance,

Cheers

Pads for Syteks

Hello all. Just purchased the Sytek MPX-4Aii mic pres, and will apparently need to pad down the signal in order to run the pres "hot" to my DAW. Any ideas about the most cost-effective way to achieve this?

I have a Mackie 1202-- will this work? I suppose I could run two channels through the main outs and two channels through the Auxes. Just wondering if there's a better way.

Thanks!

Drum pads for "live drummer" feel...?

I'm wanting to play electronic drum pads with live drum samples rather than simply programming, to get the feel of a real drummer, but I've struck a problem...

I've hooked up my drum pads to my Alesisi D4 - works great - but the D4 internal sounds aren't so great, so...

I connected the MIDI out of the D4 to my EMU sampler hoping that I could use the drum pads via the D4 to trigger some great drum samples I've got in the EMU sampler, but.

ALESIS D4/Drum Pads/EMU Sampler?

I've struck a problem...

when I hit the drum pads, it only triggers the first part of the sample for a mini millisecond (as long as the duration of the hit on the pads).
