I have been tweaking a pedalboard to get a healthy input signal and to ensure that what goes in, is what comes out. However I now realize that I don’t understand the gain structure of the Mod Duo X.
The input gain control goes from zero to 100. Does 100 represent +10db, or what?
I usually have this set at 40%. But this percent is not ‘additional’ gain from a set input of zero gain, zero is actually no volume.
The output gain I can assume is just a % of whatever volume is happening inside the device, but if I connect it to a mixer, I’m basically treating the Duo as a -10db output. I assume 100% is just no drop in gain from whatever is inside the device. So I should leave this at 100%.
Is there an ideal gain to have at the start of a pedalboard? Compressors and other plug-ins are probably not ‘relative’ in this respect and would prefer a known max level.
Possibly I’ve missed some part of the wiki for this stuff.
