Topic: Recording active pick up EMG 81 with DI clipping
i record active emg 81 with FF400 input 3 ( DI input ), instrument and pad checked, gain at o.
My problem is that i am afraid my wave tracks are clipped...
the red led on the front of the FF 400 its not clipping but my cubase input fader clipps occasionally...so when i finish tracking riffs its red on the bottom every time.the input fader it`s at 0 to.
my tracks looks ok but when i zoom in hard i see little clips in the wave.
i wonder if this is an FF400 issue or just the EMG 81 preamp clipps the signal before the input?
i read a topic about an EMG 81 mod from 9 v to 18 v and the guy said that after the mod the pick up has more gain less distorted and compressed signal but also changed the character of them and i may not like it.
anybody has the same problem here?what is the solution? your recommendations ?
