Recording Gain Stage

Hi Vance, can you explain how is your gain stage between the output of the preamps, the A/D converter and Pro Tools.

For example in the puremix tutorial your kick and snare are almost at 0dbfs but the other tracks are not that hot. What were you looking in those tracks.

Cheers

Eddie

Well, I'm not afraid of pushing those tracks because the convertors have a sound at that level..the transformers get gooey and cool.. But I use the meters on my desk to set levels coming in.. so +4.. or -18dbfs? (if -18dbfs is +4).. I use PT like a tape machine..
