Default Re: Vintage Simmons Pads with Yamaha DTX Multi 12: Weak signal from pads requires external gain boos

Hi,

The DI box won't bring the pad to line level since most DI boxes work in reverse to bring Hi-Z or line level signal down to mic level so it can be run through XLR cables. Then a mic preamp is used to gain up the signal to a desired level.

Hope this helps,
