744 and 442 question

Just bought a 744t to go with my workhorse 442 .... hopefully to ISO record the 4 channels when doing a radio camera hop

4 direct outs to 4 inputs on 744t.2 x xlr and 2 x ta3 all set to line level ...so far so good
Now i know the direct outs are post trim pre fade but when I turn down the gain/trim on any channel on the 442 and even turn down the pots on Ch1 and 2 on the 744t ..... Im still getting level into the 4 x744t channels

Im very very very confused and would really appreciate any help as I thought this was a fairly standard rig and set up ........

The trim knobs on the 442 do not fully attenuate at the direct outs.

Re: 744 and 442 question

You're saying adjusting the little knobs doesn't change gain on the 744T?

Weird.

Plug a set of cans into the 744T and listen to that audio.

Call Sound Devices Support tomorrow and run it down with them.

No - he said that they don't attenuate to zero - not that they didn't change the gain.

Thanks Jeffrery
Good to know .....couldn't figure out why I was still getting some level ...thought it was me rather than the direct outs on the 442
