I know there has been topics on the Pro Tools DUC on this, I just did a search. How hot do you folks record into PT? I just read an article in Home Recording where a guy states that he gets as hot a signal as possible, and would rather have a few clips happening than to turn the gain down. He wants to make sure he uses all his bits. However, I know from experience that recording all tracks very hot, overloads the hell out of the mix bus. Even when I record drums near clipping and then bus them to one aux, that aux start overloading with all that signal being fed to it. On the other hand, recording slightly lighter levels seems to even everything out and doesn't leave your mix with a bunch of "low" faders. (Seems to give a little warmer sound too, not pushing things so HOT). I read a while back in the PT DUC to observe 0 dbu which lies around -14 on a digital meter? WHat do you think? It's one of those stupid nitpicky things I guess.
