For openers, I would try turning up the 888-24's input trim pots. If that isn't enough, you can change a jumper on the inside to operate at an overall -10 reference.

This is all explained in the manual.

My preference is to leave 888s strapped for +4 but to run them with the output trimmers reduced and the input trims increased because most gear doesn't really have enough headroom to operate at +4.

the better bet is to buy a -10 to +4 box (DI) a good one is the ebtech Line Leveler. they come in 2 channel and 8 channel versions. Plug -10 1/4 inch jack into -10 slot and a 1/4 inch TRS jack into +4 and from there into your 888.
