Problem increasing volume on channel 2 of L1 compact
This is my first post so I hope you can help.
I’m a violinists playing through my own L1 compact in a band whilst the singer/guitarist plays through his own L1 compact. He manages to be louder than my instrument and I’m wondering why. I usually have channel 2 set at about 1 O’clock and that’s more than adequate. Over the weekend we played a larger venue and I attempted to turn the volume to about 3 O’clock and the peak indicator came on and the sound distorted. So assuming my input level may be too high I reduced that a little and turned the channel 2 volume up a bit more however it still peaked. I couldn’t get my volume more than 1:30ish without the peak light displaying. So is the peak indicator showing input level overload or output overload? Is that the maximum volume I can expect - I’ve never tested at home as I’d frighten the neighbours. How can the guitar sound louder? Is this an eq thing or have I not grasped something fundamental?
The violin is going to preamp eq and skymon reverb before compact so I assume it is at line level.
