One thing that means is, TrackControl and HOFA do not agree on what's the correct gain to use

Crackle would be the noise shaping to the 32 bit buss. I don't recommend putting PurestGain in front of any sort of huge boost for that reason: either use it for the huge boost directly, or do the boost in something like BitShiftGain (which is effectively lossless when starting from a fixed point source) and then trim afterwards with PurestGain so its noise shaping stays down at the 32 bit noise floor.
