Topic: Output level and Atty from A-Design
In one setup, (ADI-2 PRO fs and Genelec SAM 2.1 with GLM software, cables XLR-XLR), I usually use the volume control of the GLM kit (big, heavy, nice to maneuver and movable) keeping the volume control on the ADI-2 PRO at -20.5db, just before a little mechanical “click” (probably the control of loudness ?).
I’m not sure that this setting is the best for make the most of ADI converters.
For sure in this way I lost the dynamic loudness feature.
In other studio, with RME400 and also Genelec 2.1 (but without GLM and big volume),
I must keep the main output at -25db for a normal work level.
Also here I not sure that the RME works at his best in this way.
At home I have a stereo ATTY from A-Design. http://www.adesignsaudio.com/atty-stereo-attenuator. Could be useful in some way ?
