I have recently watched a video by Robert Scovill who uses Avid consoles and he was explaining a feature called gain guess which he highly recommends everyone use.
What it does is during sound check on a channel by channel basis you engage this gain guess feature and have the artist create signal, the console then adjusts input gain to be a guess of optimal preamp gain and then the engineer can adjust if needed.
This seems like a great function to go through a lot of inputs very quickly and them gained up
Is this a feature that could be implemented by yourself?
I was thinking since you had made an automatic feedback detection tool that this could possibly work in a similar way by setting the optimal gain amount of -18 when a signal is played?
I’d love to know you’re thoughts
