Last few sessions we've been experimenting with AKG-240 phones to mic the upright bass. Yeah
Anyhow, I started with a Chameleon 7602 and it worked out well enough. But the D/I at its min gain, was running hot enough to where I thought that pre could be getting into saturation, so we swapped tonight to a RNP.
Now -both at similar levels, where the 7602 is dead quiet the RNP has a not loud but notable hum. So, pulled up the manuals, the 7602 1/4 in is balanced (I didn't know this -or at least had forgotten) and the RNP is unbalanced.
The phones go TRS extension cabled to the D/Is, and in both cases signal only comes from the 'left ear.
So I'm curious what's going on here. I thought the Chameleon being balanced might be doing common noise rejection? But if it were, shouldn't it be picking up from both ears as well?
It's getting late, an' I'm confoosed
