Update, having finally hooked it up: of course, it does clip
on the Hi Z with input gain as low as it will go. RG 550 with an Evolution in the bridge, FWIW.
So, what to do now? Return it and get something better? It's hard to know what that would be, because the UR22 is recommended over interfaces that cost quite a bit more.
I was looking forward to using the bundled Cubase, as I was used to an earlier version of that, rather than having to learn how to use a different host. Seems a bit daft to go getting something like Native Instruments Komplete Audio 6 instead of the more obvious Focusrite Scarlett 2i2 or 2i4 just to get the "free" software. Otherwise I guess I'd just have to learn Reaper, seems to be good enough for pretty much everyone.
Or do I get something to stick in the signal path that will reduce the input signal? What sort of DI box do I need for that?
I don't need iOS compatibility, Jeff. Sorry if you felt I was being overly familiar.
