Hey guys, I just bought a Presonus Firepod and I want to get rid of my Mackie onyx satellite, before I sell it I want to find out what's wrong with my second preamp.. I have to crank it before I get any sound out and then the sound is just horrible noise.

When I change the source to go to my inputs and not through my daw, I can hear it in mono. So I know it works :S, but why is my preamp acting up like this.. Thanks, Godbless friends.

can you hear it at all monitoring though the headphone jack at the front of the input?
If so, it could be just a software issue....

Either way, I'd send it back to the store and swap it out...just to rule out all hardware....this is easier to do when the product is new anyways.
