BTW, are you using the universal control software?

Right. You have more gain on the mic inputs than you do the line inputs. If you are running your preamps correctly, you should not need a bunch of gain on the line inputs. Make sure your polarity is correct on your cables.

Those pres are not exactly the same per PreSonus (IIRC). The Digimax was built differently. Both are discontinued now, so for future customers the point is moot.

I wonder what will be replacing these pieces if anything?

Firewire is dead. This next year we will see USB3 and Light Peak machines. Presonus people I have spoken with said that they will be going down the USB3 path. The question is, will they reissue the existing line with the new interfaces.

If you do a search on gearslutz.com, you will find that Chad from PreSonus gave the best solutions. He is the one that helped come up with the mod in the first place.

Most people use S/PDIF for sending digital 2-track audio to a master recorder.
Pre-Sales Questions » LightPeak rumors abound...!!! » Go to message
I spoke with someone at Presonus last week about this and the man said that they were looking to USB3. If this is true, they are making a big boo boo. Light Peak is where it's at. There are laptops with LP being shown. Avid has released ProTools 9 which does not require an interface. Avid has demonstrated an Avid video and ProTools 9 system integrated with Light Peak. Firewire'sdays are numbered.

This is common among some other manufacturers too. It is not isolated to Presonus.

Turning the gain down is not going to save the tube. There is isn't a power tube in a power amp. You should not buy a second unit. That is silly.
