Re: How HISSY is your EDP?

Would that help though?  I can already pad the input before it hits the 
EDP front end with the send on the mixer.  Say for example the input on 
the mixer and the EDP is set to halfway, which is as hot as I can run 
it without overload showing up in the audio.  The output on the EDP is 
now set to max, as is the return on the mixer, and the result is a 
little bit quieter than the live instrument signal.  The problem seems 
to be that however you get the input signal to non-overloading maximum, 
the ratio of gain you can add from the output stage isn't quite enough 
to bring it to unity.

The old ones were quiet like that, and the input was very sensitive. You
can fix the gain in it to be like the newer ones with a couple of 
changes, if you are handy with a soldering iron (or know somebody who
