Hi Ian,

My recording chain for tracking is:

Guitar/synth ----> RME mic pre (set to instr. level input) -----> H3000 ----> DBX 165a -----> RME Line input -----> Pro tools

I also want to send out to this chain from pro tools with inserts:

Pro tools -----> H3000 or DBX 165a ----> RME line input ----> Pro tools


On the analog devices I target 0dBu, and on the digital devices -18dBFS.

What do you suggest?
