    Default Using a Mic In as a Line In? For Maschine into Xone 22.

    I want to add a Maschine to my set up but am lacking a spare channel on the xone 22! I was thing of running it into the Mic In. The Mic in on the Xone needs to be <2K Ohm, and the nominal level -42 to -12dBu. The line inputs are 20K Ohm, and nominal level -10 to +18dBu. What would I need to do/buy to get this working and would it act like a separate channel like I imagine?

    Any info would be great.

    Cheers.

    I wouldn't run a line level output through a microphone input to be honest. Plus its mono anyway.

    Pity the Xone22's fx loop hasn't got more return options than master mix.

    you'd need a 30 or 50db pad to be safe, but as mentioned its not really the proper way to do it and it wont be stereo
