Why a 6db Boost Restriction?

Postby Puranon » Thu Mar 29, 2012 1:52 am

You can reduce input and output gain up to 192db.

So why can you only increace gain up to +6b?

It needs a minimum boost range of +24db and accurate integer input for precision.

+6db
+7db
+12db

etc.

more precision would be nice, but it is manageable how it is right now.

i think the restriction is not too bad, you can always edit the pad (in + out)settings inside the program (edit ...).
for a lot of programs the 6 db restriction is a good thing, because they easily distort very bad, when driven slightly too hard.

and for a lot of programs you can test the gdrive pad for nat, which gives you an automatic in + reversed out - slider, to adjust the level that goes into the program, which is then compensated at the output.

We don't need such arbitrary restrictions because we are not babies.

There is simply not enough positive gain to make up for low input levels.

If proper 'gain staging' is employed, then the gain
provided by NEBULA [+-6dB] is all we need.

A trim plug can be added to precede NEB, such as the
FreeG plug.

Out of curiosity, where are your 'low input levels' derived from ??
