How to set levels for Unity Gain

Recommended Posts

Hello I’ve encounter something special yesterday while building a custom patch. 

 

Do you guys find yourself having to back down on the levels button to reach « unity gain » 

 

Has anyone ever back down on the level control ?  (below 0.00dB) in order to get unity level with Helix. 

 

Example : compressor or overdrive block. 

 

Thanks ! :D

Absolutely... but the same has always applied with regular pedals as well. The only difference is that most pedals don't mark where 0 is. IMO... on a pedal this would most often be 12:00 (noon). 

 

EG: Turn up the compression on a pedal and you often reach a point where you have to turn down the LEVEL to keep it unity. Same applies to GAIN on any overdrive or distortion.

Yes, sure. As Codamedia says. Crank up the drive (or compression) and you need to compensate by lowering block Level to maintain unity gain.
