Hi Oscar,

I would have thought iLive output is not much different from other consoles in terms of signal amplitude. I’m inclined to think this is due to the particular nature of the meters, which might mislead an unfamiliar engineer. iLive meters are fast response digital absolute peak meters. This ensures you keep control and avoid digital clipping of signals including those with very fast dynamics. But, on the other hand, it means the meters typically read hotter than those on other consoles you are used to. It is perfectly ok to work with meters reading well into the yellow!
