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...
