Waldorf - Largo vs Blofeld vs Microwave 1 vs Microwave XT

Lives for gear
IMO the Blofeld is all about gain staging.
An INIT patch, as presented by Waldorf is in bad structure, as all the oscillators are set to 127 volume
and the patch levels set to 127.

I go by the guideline of 70% as I was taught when feeding in audio into a 1" VTR, where you set the input levels and outputs to 70%.
Not hard and dry, but I generally set all pre-filter oscillators to 90/127, but less with more oscillators pre-filter.
I make up levels with a filter drive set on the 16-24 tube algo on the filter.
I set my patch level in the 90/127 range and finally my system volume is set to 90/127.

I feel this gives me headroom, as IMO the Blofeld will yield harsh results if hit too hard with volume.
