Red3 Calibration

Need a little DIY help, and figured this is the forum where I'd find it heh
I've got a Focusrite Red3, about 3 years old, that's a bit out of calibration. Seems that the right/ upper channel is about 5db down. While I'd really like to send it in for a good going over I'm a little short on funds at the moment. I was wondering if there were any Slutz out there that know which internal pots are used to adjust the input levels. I'm hoping to be able to give this puppy a quick "shade tree" tweak until I can throw down for proper service. Thanks in advance for any and all advice

Tommy,
While I can't tell you the calibration procedure for various reasons (which I'm sure you can guess), I can tell you that there is no input level adjustment.

Are you sure your not noticing 6dB which would indicate a wire from the transformer broke off?

It's possible Tony. I spoke with you about getting this guy tuned up, and having the "transformer mod" done, but I'm having a little trouble fitting it into the budget at the moment. I was just hoping to get this guy usable for the time being, but it looks like it's comin' in for surgery. I'll give you a call next week with my credit card number so you can order the tranny's, and we'll get this process rolling. Thanks for the reply though

Tommy,
I currently got an extra set of transformers in stock right now just waiting for your Red 3.
