    Hey guys,

    So we’ve got the Dante card in our GLD 112 working great for multitrack recording. Audio is passing through and signal appears where it we assigned them to go. However, we aren’t getting much gain on the channels. They are coming through, but I’d love to have a little bit more control of how much signal we’re getting from the board. Is there a way to do this?

    — Current setup is GLD112 & Dante Card running directly to Mac Mini via ethernet. Then into Pro Tools 12.

    Any help would be great.

    You’ll get the same level as is coming into the channels of your GLD, assuming you’re recording either the input socket or a prefader direct out. Be aware that the metering on the GLD is shown in “analog” where the highest level on the meter is +18, which is actually 0dBFS. On this console, 0dBFS is at 18dBu.

    If you have your input signals around 0 dBU on the GLD metering they’ll be around -18dBFS in your DAW, which is the standard nominal level. Obviously that’ll sound much quieter than a mastered commercial recording, but that’s to be expected.

    If you’re using -18dBu as your input level, everything will be very quiet and will be at -36dBFS in your DAW.

    What sort of levels are you getting into Pro Tools?

    Hi John,

    Here is a method when you doing a multi-track recording by input direct out:
    1. Route all the wanted input channel to dante I/O port out using “input direct out”
    2. Go to input processing, select routing page, select direct out
    3. Use this fader to adjust the direct out level, you will have 10dB more available.
