    hello everyone,

    I have a couple of questions regarding confingurations for optimal gain structure in protools. here it goes.
    1. I'm using a digi 002, how do you know what the configuration is? {-18dbV = 0 dbFS}

    2. with this configuration does it mean that if I clip, whille tracking, it is actually at -18dbV

    3. I track mostly synths and some vocals, I do believe that synths are at -20dbV , do I need a preamp before the DI the get optimal gain. If so, which one is good for synths.

    3. then whille mixing should I lower the faders so peaks only hit at -6db, thus giving enough head room to add dynamics and for mastering.
    thanks in advance
