A lot of people use the pre-gain control, and for me it’s been indispensable for years as a quick tool to get levels in the ballpark.
After using it for a couple of days here now I think it’s lost its edge…
You can no longer adjust it with the mouse-wheel in 1db steps… which was AWESOME!!!
In fact you can no longer adjust it with the mouse-wheel at all in the mixconsole.
When you adjust it (mostly for me at least) within the -+ 12db range… you can’t tell from just browsing the mixer if the pre gain is set to a positive or negative value until you reach about ±20db.
The range of the pre-gain is just waaaaay to broad IMO. Does anyone ever use this beyond the -+24db points anyway??
Suggestions to change in an update…
- Please make the gain control adjustable by the mouse-wheel in the mixconsole as before and preferably in 1db steps.
- If not narrowing the range of the pre-gain control into a more usable one, please color code the range bar so you know if it’s set to a positive or negative value without having to look at the actual numbers please.
