Re: Any reason not to crank your mic pre input gain?

I ruined the sound of some vocals by hitting an API too hard once. I wasn't happy about it either. I would advise caution and careful listening if you do. i've helped vocals hitting an API too hard! :) well... until i listen to it next week and decide i fucked it all up or something...growing pains...
