Burl ADC techniques discussed....

I've had the Burl for a couple years and have played around with driving the signal in many ways. I'm never dead set on one method... sometimes I'll start with the knob turned high at say -14db for a cleaner mix, and others at 18 or 20db to drive the analog stage a bit hotter. I recently tried -22db with some great results. I pushed it almost to the point of distortion on the transformers, backing off just at the point of no return. The saturation isn't really audible but it definitely sounds awesome.

Figured I'd throw up a thread to see what ways you other guys are using it. Cheers
