    Less Volume in Line-Out Signal from digital guitar Amp with MS8000 Splitter

    Hello Folks,

    I'm using the ms8000 splitter to link the direct out of my Fender Mustang (XLR) into a digital mixer (Midas MR18), using the galvanically isolated output of the splitter. But i'm getting a much weaker Signal at the mixer this way, in comparison to connecting the amp directly to the mixer input. Any Ideas why the signal could be weaker?

    Hi Franz, welcome to the forum!

    The MS8000 units are passive (not powered), and nothing is 100% efficient, so it makes sense to expect that the output will always be a little lower than the input. With no power getting to the unit there isn't a way to boost the signal or even bring it back to input level.

    Hope that helps clarify things a bit.
