    Input levels spike to red with 0 input gain

    Correct... it is quieter, but my concern is that the DI signal seems to be "limited"... as in the peaks are being cut off and the max levels I'm getting from the DI signal is -17db. If you look at the waveforms, they seem to be getting limited or compressed. Once I messed around with the...
