My understanding is the best way in general, you want as strong a level as you can get – without clipping which is killer (bad way) in a digital system – then set your FINAL output based on the venue … said another way: For a given “band”, you will be pretty consistent night after night except at the final knob – the power amp(s), which will be at 4 in a small place and 10 in a huge place (as examples).

The reason – perhaps more analog – is to assure a strung signal through the processing stream, with a minimal power-amp setting – power amps being a major source of noise.
