Lives for gear
I suppose I mean that with the mic trim nturned all the way down, and the pad on, and the fader all the way up, I usually find I can still use MORE gain and can bring the trim up a bit until the level looks right.

You might try also inserting a compressor into the micpre out - EQ in insert and use that to help adjust the gain.

But what i find sometimes is that extra little bit of less gain at the pre is a bit cleaner.

There's a point where too LITTLE preamp gain starts to sound poopy, but that little bit of difference we're talking about here, and on a loud signal where the preamp trim is all the way down or nearly so anyway, isn;t a problem.
