Why can I still hear signal from my mic when the gain is set to minimum?
Do not worry - this is normal behaviour. Note that for mic inputs the input gain range is +13 to +60 dB. This means that when the knob is fully left the signal still has 13dB of gain applied to...

Can I use condenser mics and dynamic mics simultaneously with my Octopre LE? Will phantom power damage the dynamic mics?
The phantom power on the Octopre LE is globally switched in and out so if you are recording with condenser mics that require phantom power, any dynamic mics (that do not require phantom) that you...
