I am setting up a home recording studio and bought a Focusrite 6i6 (2nd gen) interface. I plugged the line outs from my MOXF into the line-in jacks on the back of the 6i6. The signal barely registers a quarter of a meter blip on the interface, even with the master cranked up and the gain is set to +6db in the utility menu. The only workaround seems to be that I have to plug it into the front panel jacks of the interface where you can set the gain with knobs and crank the gain.
This is a less than elegant solution because I wanted to plug the keyboard into the rear jacks (non variable gain) so I can keep a guitar plugged into the front jack. Plus, I don't want to have to switch back and forth between plugging the MOXF line outs from the interface and directly to the monitors (just to get a stronger signal) when I just want mess around and play the MOXF.
Anything I am overlooking? I get a decent signal when I use the MOXF sound card to record in Cubase via USB, but would like to stick to using the 6i6 and keep from switching drivers in the middle of the project.
