OK, First let me give you my signal chain. Rode K2 - Presonus Eureka - DIGI 002R On the Presonous there are LED indicators for the PRE section and a VU for the master output. Now when i get the eureka to sit well in the VU my tracks in the DAW are too low unless i use the trim knob on my DIGI. Lets say there was no trim knob though (i.e. if i was using inputs 5-8 on the DIGI). Then what? I guess what i'm asking is should i pretend that VU meter doesnt exist and just go by my ears and watch the level in the DAW?
