Default Are the 001 pres really this weak?

I'm having a problem with a direct box setup. I was recording a bass guitar the other day through a whirlwind eb-1 direct box and still had the preamp cranked almost wide open. The DI is brand new. The mic cable is brand new and of quality so what's the problem? Are the pres really this weak? With the bass set up I was able to get a somewhat acceptbale level. However I attempted to plug a pedalboard (which has been recorded direct before on another setup) And i could barely even bring the meter in the green. Any suggestions or comments? A little additional info. I DID check to make sure there was no pad set and it's a passive box so no phantom power is required.

You can plug your bass directly into the 3-8 inputs of the 001, adjust the input sensitivity via the hardware settings, and should have no gain problems.

the 001 preamps don't have a ton of gain, so if youa re running a relatively low level input into them they do require cranking them up some. Try an active DI.

Hope this is helpful.
