Rupert Neve Designs 5060 USERS - VU METERs

Im writing to see if other Rupert Neve Designs 5060 Centerpiece users find the clicking VU meters to be distracting?

Im considering bringing it in to have the meters... i dont know.... disabled?

or maybe put some foam in there so it isnt a constant click click click click when im trying to focus.

thanks !

Ha ha .... I have noticed the clicking at times ... but then I realize I’m sending out levels too hot.

I find that the sweetspot is to not have the meters pegged. Adding 50% of red silk and its awesome.

I also find that I have to keep an eye on my mix return to my converters, the headroom on the 5060 can clip my converters quite easily.

I mix in two stages anyway; first I get the mix sounding the way I want it and bounce that in, then I do a separate step of adding level with a limiter and get it to the right LUFS level for streaming, etc. So I don’t feel the need to slam the levels at the summing stage.
