Gain staging is one of the most overlooked topics and, when done wrong, most common problems in DIY productions.

People either don't fully understand it, think it's boring, or underestimate the dramatic consequences for the sound of their records.

The problem is that much of the information on the internet about gain staging is misleading, confusing and mostly black or white. That's why we're telling you the truth about it, why it is so important to pay attention to it and why it's all about intentionality, rather than aiming for "correct" or "healthy" levels.

In order to be intentional about your gain staging, you need some basic knowledge and understanding of how different levels at different stages affect your audio. It's not complicated, though. Once you put in the time and understand the principles behind it, it will all make sense to you quickly. And from that moment on, you will never have to guess about the right levels going in and out of your gear, or wonder why something sounds bad when there seems to be nothing obviously wrong.

Join us as we help you understand the principles behind and the benefits of proper, intentional gain staging.
