    Can someone explain to me the concept of "line level?" I don't even know how to ask the question more specifically because I don't know exactly what kind of answer I'm looking for.. sorry..

    This is the level that would be too hot for a mic input. Pro level is +4dbu, consumer line level is -10dbu.

    Thanks for the replies, that helps clear things up a bit, and the Rane glossary looks like a great resource.

    along the same lines- what's the difference between dBV and dBu?

    :) dBu and dBv are the same, decibels referenced to 0.775 volt. dBV is referenced to 1 volt.
