    I'd also like to get your take at gain staging at 0dBVU in the digital age. Do you do this still and if so how strict are you with it, plus how do you track it along your stages.

    Some examples could be:

    • How you gain stage your outboard gear and at what levels.
    • How you gain stage the signal flow within the DAW. Specifically managing gain in the channels and busses as well as the plugin inserts (Especially as more plugins these days are expecting a -18 dBFS / 0dBVU input).
    • Specific examples of how and when you like to slam an input (such as with your SSL console)
