      hi there

      i am receiving my serge modular panels any day now, i am wondering if is it ok to plug a modular like that directly into the analog input of the h8000 ?

      i know the signal from the serge is very strong, but i would like to treat the synth like how guitarists work with the eventides.

      many thanks

      Congratulations!  As I often say, "Once you start down the modular path, forever will it dominate your destiny!"  I haven't updated it in a while, but I have a web page about modular stuff at analognotes.com

      I have a decent sized MOTM and Blacet modular myself.  The output is indeed very hot.  I always use a mult/attenuator between the modular and my H8000FW…

      Same thing for a Moog Slim Phatty going into the H8000FW?  A preamp in-between?

      The H8000 analog inputs will handle over +24dBU, this is almost 15V peak to peak. My guess is that the output of the modular synth is probably less than this, so a direct connection will be fine.

      A few more (silly) questions…

      What about a vocal mic or a guitar?

      Should they go into a preamp first prior to the H8000FW?  What would the advantages/disadvantages be without the preamp?

      A mike will need a preamp to get enough level.

      A guitar can be connected directly to the 1/4" sockets, but you will probably need to crank up the input gain.
