MW1 studio tool

Anybody use one of these for a guitar DI? I have the input Z set at around 75% and the balanced line out gain at zero and it still peaks my track at 0db.

If I lower the input Z I can get the input lower, but I lose tone. Am I doing something wrong here?

Does the signal light on the MW1 turn red? If so, you might just have hot outputs on your guitar. If the signal light is not turning red, maybe a pad after the MW1 would help lower the line level signal before your interface.

I pick pretty hard and I get the signal light to turn red on the MW1, even with passive pickups. Occasionally the DI input will clip my Audiofire12 inputs. Hasn't been an often enough occurrence to worry about, but I suppose a 10 dB line level pad on the MW1 output would be useful in my case.

I will check that, thanks!
