Hello there,

The system doesn't have per say a "Small Fader" Due t0 the size of our design goals and the extra amplifiers it entails. However the Mic pre switch is in 5 DB increments and the makeup gain on the compressor/limiter section has a 20 DB range. So if you like riding to tape or the DAW you can easily engage the compressor section and ride away. In addition, you can always take any unused input and press the Insert return to direct out button, and now the 100mm fader will control the level to the direct output "IE Post Fader" so you have a fader to "ride" the levels to tape.

I hope this answers your question.
Geoff.

Definitely the right call on keeping extra buffer amplifiers down. The fewer stages the signal goes through the sweeter the sound. Or at least that is in my experience. Proper design proper implementation equals proper sound. I wish more people would appreciate that philosophy. Wonderful job
