Establishing Optimum Gain Structure

Church Production Magazine: Establishing proper gain structure in a sound system is important. You can sometimes “get by” if the various devices are mismatched in gain. But when you need extra level from the system, or additional headroom to keep distortion down to an absolute minimum, or a very low noise flow for recording, a mismatched system will not perform properly. Ideally, each device in the system, and that includes Input Faders, Sub Masters, and Output Faders should be set to unity gain as a starting point.
