I have been reading on this forum for the last hour and still don't know exactly whut to dew. I am of course going to be doing a lot of experimentation on this but I wanted some advice from yall too if I can.
I have an M-Box 2, Pro Tools 7.3, a focusrite trakmaster pro mic pre, a ART PRO VLA 2 compressor, and a audio technca 3035 mic. I before I got the mic pre and comp I was using the pres on the M-Box 2 and I had to have the -10 db pad switch on the mic because the signal was coming in way to hot. Now that I have the mic pre and comp tho I want to kno which inputs to go in and out of. There is +4 dbu or -10 dbv on each peice of equipment. Should I come out of the mic pre to the comp at - 10 or +4?
