xlr outputs line or mic

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone, Im using my helix LT with dual xlr from Helix to Soundmixer FOH to PA, No amp on stage. The manual suggest using XLR to MIC setting, I had it originally on line. What I noticed is a large volume drop on Mic setting. Our soundman can adjust by raising gain and faders however what I was wondering, is there any tone differences? I cannot seem to notice and canto crank up to live volume in my home to expriemnt. I really do not wish wait until show time. Just curious if anyone has any info on this? Thanks in advance.

FlyteBand, the video link below is how line 6 recommends connecting Helix to Mixer. It is how I run my Helix LT to my Zoom Livetrak 12 mixer, and then out to my P.A.  This site does a good job of defining , mic level, line level, instrument level, etc. It explains that the MIC level is a lower "loudness" or "strength"  than the LINE level.  Hope this helps.
