30dB pad on mic cable
« on: October 12, 2012, 11:02:39 PM »
I understand that a dB attenuator reduces the signal coming in to a preamp but, is -30dB pad too much.

Maybe I am not understanding this but, I wanted to know if this cable is not the right cable/s to use.

Thanks for your help.

Richard.

That's too much $$ and you might not need attenuation all the time. 30db is also a lot. Get the 12s from Jon, they'll do you right in most situations, and you can use them with your existing cables.

I found this >>>>>

https://eventhorizon-srv.com/ecommerce/os/catalog/product_info.php?products_id=2744

looks real nice.

no dB pad, striaght lines mic > pre.

a little pricey but, they look worth it.

Thanks for the input. I thought that the 30dB pad was not supposed to be there either. Just wanted to make sure.
