    I just purchased the firepod yesterday and I'm having problems with getting any real level. I tried to record separately a vibraphone (with a MXL V67 with phantom power on) and vocals with an Audix OM5 and in both cases, I barely get any level on the channels I decide to record on. And I mean, barely any. I'll be lucky if the meter on the channel even lights up. What am I missing? Is the unit defective? Is there a pad somewhere?

    Just curious if you found the solution to your problem. I recently got a Firepod and it's been great, although I'm plugging instruments directly into it or line level signals rather than mics. I have some of the input gains up pretty high to get the level I need.

    yep, I believe it was a problem between using balanced and unbalanced cables.
