Just wondering if it’s normal that the input levels for inputs 3 & 4 on my UR28M are very quiet. I was under the impression that line level instruments like drum machines and keyboards could be plugged directly into these ports, and that volumes would be identical with those gotten from inputs 1 & 2 (with the preamps turned off obviously).
As it is, I’m struggling to get anything usable through these two inputs. By comparison, inputs 1 & 2, with the preamps turned all the way down, bring in about 60% more volume. What this means to me basically is that I can’t easily record one of my old drum machines with individual outs, because the difference in volumes is massive. Sure, I could quadruple up the tracks coming in off inputs 3 & 4, but it seems to be that this should be unnecessary.
The same drum machine that is uselessly audible on inputs 3 & 4 is clipping on inputs 1 & 2!! Again, this has nothing to do with the preamps, as I have these turned all the way down.
Any help understanding this problem would be much appreciated. I must also say that apart from this issue, I’ve been really enjoying my interface.
