Hi, digging up this old thread, but I'd be happy to start a new topic if anyone prefers...
Has a Technote been published for how to mod the Minibrute for a hotter audio input?
I was just trying the Audio In as a Gate Source again, with a drum machine as the source. Even with the drum machine's output volume at maximum, and the "Audio Gate Threshold" set to Low with the Minibrute Connection software, it still was not triggering at all. I had to patch in a preamp to add another 18dB of gain in order for the Gate to trigger, at which point the preamp's meters were indicating a +12dB output. That's pretty goddamn loud. A "low" threshold setting shouldn't require that much juice!
