Allow me to offer a different perspective on this. You could set the gains for the pre-amps as hot as possible to keep the analog pre-amp warm so you are getting the most out of it. Then you would set the desk to use the trim in order to set your faders at unity gain. In the analog world, the gain and trim knobs are pretty much the same thing depending on the console you have, but digital has allowed the ability to run the pre-amps hot, and dial back with digital trim.

Just a thought on the subject.
