Thanks for the vid @ Jeezo , will watch that this evening!
Check out the features overview video for some answers about that. It is more for tone shaping than a simple gain staging option. It controls how the how unit behaves. Going by that, if you have a +6db input gain with a gain plugin before with internal input gain set to neutral 0 and then compare that with no external plugin and +6db set within Iron, I believe there will be a difference.

Haven't tested that though but that's what the creators sound like they're saying, to my mind.
