UR22mkII Input 2 Hi-Z switch

Post by Erix » Thu Jan 10, 2019 9:23 pm

Hi there,

Disclaimer: I'm a noob with the UR22mkII, I just received it today.

I'm not sure to understand what are the cases when I need to activate the Hi-Z switch on Input #2:
  • Should I activate it when I directly plug an active bass? (I think it's a clear yes)
  • Should I activate it when I directly plug a passive bass? (I think yes, but not 100% sure)
  • Should I activate it when I plug a bass through an effect pedal? (not sure at all)
  • Should I activate it when I plug a bass through a multi-effects pedal? (not sure at all)
  • Should I activate it when I plug a bass through a DI box (or DI output of an amp)? (seems from the documentation, I should not)
  • Should I activate it if I direclty pug my bass with a symetric jack? (seems from the documentation, I should not)
At the end of the day, what if I never activate that switch? Is there a danger for the audio interface?
I suppose I can just adjust the Input #2 GAIN and I'm fine.
Quite frankly, I don't really understand the value of that switch…

Thanks in advance for your advice and answers.

Best regards, Erix.
Ciao, Erix.
