    Re: Matching Gain Levels Mic Pre->Recorder

    Usually one keeps the mic pres just below clipping to maximize signal to noise ratio. You didn't specify if you have an analog or digital recording device. At 16 bit digital, it is still useful to keep fairly hot recording levels so as not to get too few bits on the softest parts. At 24 bits the increased dynamic range makes it less of an issue. Typically in pop music recording, tape levels are kept high because the sound of tape compression produced by higher recording levels has been perceived as musically desireable.
