Greetings all,

Proud new owner of a ULN-2. I've noticed that if I have the monitor volume knob turned all the way down I can still hear output through the Mackie 824s. In fact, there is no audible difference in level between the first step in the attenuator and full counter clockwise (so basically, between fully off and one notch above fully off). The output is faint, but it's definitely there. Anyone else having this problem? Solutions?

I realize that I could just use the MIO console for mutes and whatnot, but it'd be nice to be able to just twist the volume knob when I want to cut sound.

cheers Wink

This is due to the tolerance of the monitor control knob potentiometer. While is it technically within spec, it may leak slightly at its lowest level. You might want to lower the input sensitivity on your 824s to compensate.
