  • Session + venue gain staging

    I decided to try to run the session di into the venue di and i like what im hearing so far. I just have a doubt about my gain staging. I run my guitar to the session with gain at 11 and the session volume at 12 into the venue. The venue gain is currently at 9 which is displays just green in the meter and doest reach yellow. My question is do i need to reach yellow which is around 12 with the venue? Because it gets pretty loud if i set the venue gain at 12.

    My general advice is "do what sounds best". To me, that is getting the Session and Venue to peak in the Yellow, not in the Red. Some people like the sound of hitting the input harder, but I think it sounds a bit harsh. Peaking in the Yellow sounds softer and warmer to me. I hope it helps.

      For the venue to peak in yellow for me, the gain has to be around 12 but there is already an audible noise around that gain level.

        I would just play with the balance of both gains until you find the best settings. It may vary for each player.

          I apologize for my English))) I want to share my experience of using Session and Venue. So, I put the Session first in the chain, then Venuy and the effects in the loop. Why? When using the ME80 in the passive mode with significant amplification of the Venua, noise does indeed arise if the power supply is from the mains (when using batteries, this problem does not exist). Therefore, at first, the signal is amplified to the yellow level in the session, compressed, then, if necessary, in Venua, where in addition it is rebuilt by the equalizer and effects. Another observation: to Venua and Session it is better to apply power from a separate source and not to combine with power pedals the effects standing in the loop. At Session, the volume level in the first place I expose the gain, then the volume, and on the Venua the opposite

            I am having some trouble understanding your exact question. If you want to email me directly at tech@lrbaggs.com, I will see if I can help you there.
