Gain and Operating Levels
Posted by Maf Prigg on 27 November 2013 04:19 PM

It is most important that the system level settings are correctly set.

It is well known that many DJs push the level to maximum with meters
peaking hard 
in the belief that they are getting the best from the system.

THIS IS NOT THE CASE !

The best can only be achieved if the system levels are set
within the normal operating range and not allowed to peak.


Peaking simply results in signal distortion, not more volume.

It is the specification of the amplifier / speaker system that
sets the maximum volume that can be achieved, not the console.



The human ear too can fool the operator into believing that more volume is needed.


Be careful as this is in fact a warning that hearing damage will result if high listening levels are maintained.

Remember that it is the QUALITY of the sound that pleases the ear, not the VOLUME.

BE SENSIBLE, BE SAFE WITH SOUND LEVELS
