Notes about input / recording levels on Juli@ / Juli@ XTe
We sometimes get asked about differences in the input and recording levels
of Juli@ / Juli@
XTe when recording signals from the analog line input.
Juli@ and Juli@ XTe can be set to accept either +4dBu or -10dBV input signals
depending on the usage of the balanced TRS I/O or the unbalanced RCA I/O. Because
of that, it is important that the output signal of the device connected to the
input is matching the input signal:
If you use a balanced +4dBu rated outputs (typically XLR) on the source device
(i.e. let's assume a mixing desk), then you would want to use the balanced +4dBu
TRS inputs on Juli@ / Juli@ XTe.
If you use an unbalaced -10dBV rated outputs (typically RCA), then you would
use the unbalanced -10dBV RCA inputs on Juli@ / Juli@ XTe.
Now, if you use unbalanced outputs on the source device like a mixing desk
and balanced inputs on Juli@ / Juli@ XTe, it would result in different levels
and it would appear that the input / recording level is way too low. If it is
the other way round, the input / recording level might be too high instead.
So you need to check how you connect your source to Juli@ / Juli@ XTe. Please
also note that many devices also allow you to manually adjust the output level,
which could help in addition (more information on that can be found here).
