    Just hooked up the LP-16 tonight and have been tweaking for around three hours or so. No hums, no hiss; excellent product!

    Here’s a huge tip if anyone else wants to try…works very well! Re-amping: record a guitar or bass line to a track in your DAW, but only record what the guitar puts out directly (DI) from its pickups. Then use a TRS to XLR adapter cord out of the LP-16 (didn’t know if this would work until I tried it…but it works very well) like this or equivalent TRS – XLR then into a reamp box (like this or equivalent: PRORMP )…into your guitar/bass amp’s input…wow, great tone, it’s like having a bass (or guitar) player through an amp exactly…way better than plain ole stereo or mono backing tracks through the fronts only!

    I’m stoked! :cheer:

    that’s exactly what I have in mind… I’d like to run the bass as a backing track from the LP-16 to a bass amp instead of sending to the PA. Do I necessary need to re-amp the signal before sending to the bass amp in this case? how much improvement I’m gonna have in the signal using the Re-amp? I’d very much appreciate if you could give some more details about it.
    Many thanks! 🙂

    The reamp (PRORMP) ensures that the impedance going into the input of the bass head is the same impedance of a guitar, and the level going in is once again the same as when you used the guitar. To hear the difference, try an a/b switch from two outputs from the LP16 with the same mono wave on both tracks saved at the same output level on the mixer, and run an unbalanced cable from the first channel to A, and the second through the TRS to XLR male adaptor into the female input of the RMP (or equivalent) then out the 1/4″ output with an unbalanced (guitar cord) into the B input of the A/B switch, then out of the A/B switch into the input of the bass amp.

    Then playback the LP-16 and switch between the A/B sources listening to the difference. To my ear, I hear a better level and signal through the RMP-side. I hope this helps.
