I’ve got the Presonus StudioLive desk and I’m looking to use inputs 1-16 which are mic input only. I presume this is because there’s no way to bypass the mic pre’s on these inputs unlike 17-32 which are on combo sockets. I’m looking at passive rack mounted DI boxes as it’s gonna be more cost efficient and neater than using one or two boxes for each input. I’m only planning on using these channels for line level signals such as synths/drum machines etc so I’m assuming passive is the way to go.
Have any of you guys gone down the same route? The ones I’ve seen are the Palmer Pan 16 (8ch passive) and ART do one too I believe. I’m aware of the Behringer one but they’re active only.
Any ideas or suggestions welcomed.
