I’m looking over a new small audio device and I think that the UR44 meet my needs but I had a very important question (to me at least)
I just to had a focusrite scarlett 2i2 and it had a problem, the Hi-Z input get’s too hot too fast when using a guitar with humbucker pickups (Telecaster BlackTop HH if must know)
For my work sometimes I need to record clean guitar to later on reamping and doing this with the 2i2 Hi-Z Input was nearly impossible when played hard, the only way to record clip free was lowering the volume know in the guitar , what of course changed the completely the color of the sound.
This also happen in my studio’s UR824 but this was easyly fixed with the Pad Switch
Now, the UR44 doesn’t have any pad and I can’t find any info regarding the gain range of the UR44 Hi-Z Input, I know that 2i2’s gain was: -4dB to +46dB.
Does the UR44 share the same fixed gain as the UR824? I can see in any place this info?
If the gain is the same, the UR44 will be useless (to me) recording instruments thru the Hi-Z input
