themetallikid Posted February 25, 2021 Share Posted February 25, 2021 How do these differ when trying to boost leads. I'm redoing my presets and trying to boost leads and I have everything from -1.5db (cleanest preset lead) to +7.5db (heaviest, most compressed signal) in the gain blocks at the end of my chain. However, I'm using my Xair18's input meter to help guage lead boosts to make sure they arent over the top meter wise as we dont get together for practice much for me to judge this in a live band context (meters get me close enough for finer adjustments post gig)....and the difference in the what the Xair is getting at a comparative +7.0db from Gain Block vs Output level is quite drastic. Is there a reason why? (Yes I get the use your ears and all is fine argument) I dont see why they'd be different, they are next to each other in the chain (gain blocks are right before output and both are 'db' adjustments Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
