Why is input so hot when everything else is turned down?

I’m trying to record a stingray through darkglass alpha omega, then into input on audio box 96. No matter what, it’s way too hot. I’ve turned the pedal all the way down, turned down the bass and have input dialed all the way back as well. And it will still clip. I tried going out line instead of xlr into the interface but that was same result.  It will still clip yet playback is super low. And it’s also pretty hot when plugged directly into the input. Not sure what I’m doing wrong, thanks

I am having the same issue. The box is peaking at 0 gain on the input. I am using an aux send from the 32r, and in the UC, there is no gain adjustment on the aux send. I cannot find any adjustments anywhere on the mixer to control the gain going into the audiobox.
