Sorry, a little clarification: the faders don’t establish a “maximum” level, because DCAs can be above 0 dB. The fader level and any DCAs it’s assigned to are summed to determine the effective fader level for that channel.

The DCA will only affect the other channels in the gang if they are also assigned to the DCA – and I believe if you have chosen to include “routing” in the ganged attributes, assigning one of the channels will assign all of them.
