Hey guys, I'm facing a little dilemma; I've been using my Apogee Quartet with the inputs set to instrument mode to record my brother's Schecter Blackjack which has active blackout pickups, but even with the gain set at zero (as low as it goes) the signal is still too hot... (not peaking, just always in high yellow). When I record his other guitars that have passive pickups (a chapman ML2 and a custom guitar he made himself) I can set the gain normally at around 15-20 without any problems. What do you guys suggest as the best way solve this? Would a DI box between the guitar and the interface fix my problem? I've never used a DI box before, but I have a vague idea of what they do. Any advice/enlightenment would be much appreciated. Thanks.
