Also be aware that if any of the DCAs are set to -inf you won’t get any sound from any channel/mix controlled by that DCA, as -inf + x (whether x is the level of the channel/mix or another DCA controlling the same thing) still = -inf.

If you’re feeding mtxs from LR you should only apply the DCA to LR. If you apply the same DCA to LR and the mtxs and put it at +5, you’ll get +5 on LR but effectively +10 on the mtxs (+5 from the LR signal feeding the mtx + another +5 from the effective mtx fader boost.) Same rule applies if you’re feeding LR exclusively from groups: you don’t want the same DCA controlling the groups + LR.
