The Mic Sens (ATT) switch on the back of the M10 only affects the Microphone Input. It has no when using the Line Input, which is the proper input to be using for loud rock with a fixed gain nbox.

baby nbox only powers the mics, has no gain at all and runs into the mic input

Any comments on m10 preamp quality? Does "mic in" run through same gain stage as "line in" anyway?

I like the Roland R-05 because it has more gain available, as far as quality they both sound good.

I ran the Baby NBox only once and noticed a lack of high end--not dramatic, but certainly there.  It was easily fixed in post.  So I sorta thought it was a feature, not a mistake.

Marc I know you have heard my EQ version of Roger Waters MK41>Baby NBox>M10. So I threw together a couple of songs totally un-edited for you to check out. I think the M10 does a pretty nice job.

Wow is right!  Nice job!    :clapping:
A lot of people run a race to see who is the fastest. I run to see who has the most guts, who can punish himself into exhausting pace, and then at the end, punish himself even more.
