    I just picked up a new console for myself, a Soundcraft 2400 split, very sexy. Anyhow I have been having issues with signal flow, this is the setup, in my head it works, but for some reason I can t seem to get signal, Keep in mind I tested the connections with a cable tester and white noise,

    02 elco snakes (1-8) and (9-16) , Leave the board the first 8 go into a xlr to 1é4 balanced snake (the elcos are XLR only) the first 8 go to PT Digi 002, and return on a different snake. The second 8 go elco to xlr to snake (xlr - 14 ) into a Berginher ultran gain mic pre , into the 1/4 lines ,and then optical in and out into the Digi 002 , then the outs of the bergher and plugged back into the returns on the elco snake.

    I can get signal back thru the berhger thru the optical, but not in, and I cant get anything thru the 1/4 ins and outs.

    In my head once again, this makes sense, but for some reason, it dont work.

    Did I overlook something,

    I was thinking I would pull everything out , and try the whole wiring again and see what happens.

    thanks for any help you can give

    It's not easy to follow your description of where the signals are meant to be flowing.

    Can you describe, starting at the mic pres and following the flow of the signals, how the different bits of gear interconnect? Come to think of it, the thing to do may be to unplug everything and connect it back up, section by section, as you do so describing on this board what you are doing, what works and what doesn't. Someone may be able to pinpoint the problem then.
