Honestly, I am pretty close to cry…
I got the problem that all of my guitars are clipping when I use them on input 2 with Hi-Z activated. Without Hi-Z the guitars sound like crap. This has already discussed in some other threads here and I still didn’t find a solution yet.
So I got myself a Radial Pro48 Active Direct Box. Now my guitar goes into the Pro48 and then via XLR into one of the inputs on the UR22. The Hi-Z is not necessary anymore since the signal is already converted by the Pro48. With a smile on my face I started playing and imagine what happened. The signal is still way to hot and clipping like hell. Happily the Pro48 has a -15dB Pad function. So I eagerly press the button… and it’s still clipping!
I converted the signal via Pro48, lowered it by -15dB, Hi-Z on the UR22 is off and the input gain is at zero. So why is it still clipping and what the hell can I do now?!
I am really a noob with all that technical stuff, therefore I am very thankful for any help.
