    Mark is on the money. That diagram shows the line signal going into a downstream IC. The gain control might still affect the signal but it is probably a dual gang pot and Presonus use a clever gain sharing arrangement to minimize noise and maximize headroom? The company are anyway known for excellent pre amps.

    However, this question of "will an attenuated mic pre as a line stage bugger my pre amp sound?" comes up regularly. IMHO not likely. Given a decent mic amp design (and Pres' are such as we know!) the addition of a few resistors is hardly going to change things much, in any case the stage will likely be at minimum gain and hence contribute even less noise etc to the signal. The question is even more marginal if the intended pre amp is one of "colour".

    But, all my waffle is probably needless? The FS Project has inserts so the whole mic/line stage can be completely bypassed.

    looks like you could use the insert return as a line in too, and bypass the front end even more.

    if it's not happening in the room, it ain't gonna happen on tape.-HG

    How comes I can use this? And how would I set up that input in vst connections. I only have 1-8 inputs available here (the ones on the front of the unit assumingly) if these apply to channels 1-2 then the manual states these are not for line inputs (not sure about those returns though)
