Level balancing question
Because of the way I use my four-track decks (mixing w/the monitor
section to control the mix of live playing w/looping tracks), I need to
use the powered headphone out instead of the line out. Some decks have
an unpowered monitor out, but my main squeeze does not. Obviously, sound
people HATE the thought of me giving them a powered signal, though it's
never caused any actual problems. I keep the output level very low, and
am sure never to bump it up by accident.
But it seems like I'm putting things at risk. Is there some way for me
to change the headphone level output to line level? Will a direct box
effectively take care of the issue (maybe one w/ a 15db pad)?
