I connected my preamp to input 5 using a TRS cable, and the 192 is treating it as a mic, I can dial up to 60DB gain on the Studio 192 preamp level control, but that raises two questions:
1. I thought the limit was 20 DB when using TRS. So the Studio 192 thinks my preamp is not a line-level signal and it seems the mic preamp is engaged. Did I misunderstand the specs?
2. the level is very low, I am using the same preamp output level as I did with my previous interface. I can raise the input level of input 5 up to 60 and it compensates - Is it normal to raise the input level to almost 60 when connecting an outboard preamp? I suppose I could crank the outboard preamp more but it is weird that my old interface worked fine at that output setting.
