See above.

Just received mine, and haven't tried recording a rehearsal yet.  When 
you turn off the automatic level control there is indeed a -20 db pad 
setting for the external mic and the volume control for the built in 
mics seems to attenuate pretty well.  Could there be different firmware 
versions on our two units?

I may have a better perspective later in the week...
