There's no pad button.  There's a phantom button to give it a little extra juice.

Anyway, I found an XLR->TS adapter in my big box of cables and was able to plug 
directly into the Audiofire12.  Now I have a healthy amount of overhead in my signal 
while still pulling in a good amount of clarity.  It would be nice if I could adjust 
that now.

A pad switch would be nice.  The Nady preamp is such a simple device it doesn't even 
have that.  I suppose I could run it through my Mackie mixer instead.
