    Does I simply plug my TS cable in input 1 and my TRS cable in output 1 to have my signal transformed from unbalanced to balanced ?

    I don't know what I'm doing wrong and have searched everywhere to no avail.  I am trying to record guitar through a Line6 PODXT and to also record a clean DI signal as backup for reamping. My chain is 1) guitar output => 1/4" input on DI100 => output XLR to interface (Focusrite Scarlett) and 2) LINK on DI100 => INPUT on PODXT => Output on POD to second input on interface.  When I do this the clean DI signal records just fine, but the LINK signal from the POD picks up all of my backing tracks rather than just the guitar signal.  I have tried going directly into the interface (no DI) and it doesn't do this, so it seems to be something specific to the interaction between the DI and the POD.  Any suggestions?

      PedroRodrigues Hi, Twpinson to be honest the usage that you are doing form the DI100 and the respective routing, form your description seems correct and to be honest the DI100 does not have much to it when it comes to routing, so I would suggest checking your Line6.
      I’m not an expert on Line6 product and form more detailed information you should call the Line6 Support services never the less you can try to Complete Factory Recall to reset your PODXT’s entire memory to its factory-programmed state, then boldly do this:
      Press SAVE once, then use the SELECT knob to scroll to the page
      I hope this helps.
      Thank you

    Hi, I have bought a PS1 Powersoak. It's all good but if I run my Vox NT50 flat out into it with a 2x12 cab attached, even with the powersoak set to the lowest volume, it's still too load to play in my flat late at night.

    So, is it safe to use it without the speaker attached and the soak volume set to a little more than the lowest, then I can use the line out into a mixer & use headphones. I say, little more than lowest becuase the line out is wierdly controlled by the large soak volume wheel, so when that's set to lowest, virtually nothing comes through the line out apart from hiss & hum.

    The manual is quite ambiguous on this.

      DavidKnighton Hello Russell,
      The manuals states that "even with the SOAK set to 100, the power output will be about half of the amplifiers rated output". This means if you have a 100 watt amp, you're effectively reducing the output by about by 50 watts with Soak set to 100.

      All that being said, I think it would be wise to maintain the speaker load of the cabinet, as most amps do not function correct without the speaker load. What I would suggest is to turn the Master volume down on your amp to compensate. Also, you might want to check and see if you can disconnect one of the drivers in your cabinet to change the load impedance. If you can disconnect one driver, you may increase the load impedance, which will draw less power from the amp, and in turn may reduce the volume a bit. If you do this, make sure you check the impedance value of the speaker and use the correct impedance setting on both the PS1 and the amp head.

      • Bugera PS1 without a speaker connected?
        thewool Hi David,

        Sorry but this answer is very unclear and over-complicated.

        Regardless of the settings, either the PS1 provides the necessary Speaker Load Resistance or not. Your manual says you can either connects a PS1 AND/OR a speaker. ie. it does not need a speaker. ie. it is safe to use without a speaker regardless of the attenuation level.

        Could you please consult with your engineers to get a definitive answer on this, this question is asked a lot in the audio forums.

      It would be good to get explicit technical support from Bugera on this question. I see this question on many external boards. This is clearly a use case that many customers would like to use (I am one of them). Please provide clear guidance on if / how the PS1 can be used for silent recording without a speaker cabinet connected. Thank you.

      Hate to necro this thread, but I would like to know if anyone has a concrete answer on this topic...

    Hi, does a DI400P DI BOX drop the line level from a mono mixer output, down to a balanced microphone level?

    I'm looking at taking an audio feed into stereo camera mic input.

    Thanks, Ken

    Hi, The stereo Klark Teknik DI 10P features one L+R RCA and one 3.5mm (stereo) inputs. Can all inputs be simultaneously used so the 4 channels are summed to build a single mono signal ? I'm hesitant to try it. I wouldn't like to damage the DI. Thanks in advance.

      RexBeckett As I understand it, the RCA and 3.5mm sockets are connected directly together. This would not be a good way to sum two stereo sources but it is more likely to damage the sources than the DI 10P. You would get much better results by using a small stereo mixer to sum the sources.

      jgomer2001 For those interested, here is the reply received by the support specialist: "You could use all inputs at the same time but I wouldn't recommend it to prevent overdriving the passive circuitry. Instead, If you need to use more than one source, plug your sources into a small mixer. Take the mixer's outputs and connect them to one of the stereo inputs of the DI. This will also allow for better control of your individual sources."

    Hi, In the stereo Klark Teknik DI 10P every input channel has an attenuation knob. Product documentation mentions that knobs at fully clockwise position means no attenuation. What's the max attenuation achievable (ie. set fully counter clockwise) in dBV ? Thanks in advance.

    • jgomer2001
      jgomer2001 The level knobs of the DI 10P are relative to the signals input into the device. You can relate the 0 to 10 scale to 0% to 100%. So, it will take the signal and attenuate it down the percentage amount you choose of the signal coming in.
