I want to mention that the new Room EQ "Vol Cal. dB" knob in Totalmix FX is great for this purpose!

It can attenuate each output independently by up to 24dB, it disregards snapshots, and applies even when the "Room EQ" switch is turned off! Not available on the Babyface (yet?) though.

Only if you would rather not use the EQ for real use cases...

Much saver is to spend €25 for an attenuator ..
Then you have your head free and can activate / deactivate room EQ as you want.

The Vol Cal. is applied even when the Room EQ is turned off though.

I do use Room EQ for real use cases such as to calibrate my speakers response, subwoofer crossover, and individual EQ for each headphone output. I have saved all used (and usused) EQ presets with the desired Room Cal. attenuation so that my maximum listening level is attained at 0dB fader level.

I totally agree with OP in terms of Snapshots. This shit almost killed my Genelecs several times. WHY does it set all faders to 0 by default, just WHY?

It's WAY MORE safer to set all the faders to "-inf" by default when changing Snapshots. And only then user could make his own volume settings to his taste in every snapshot and save them.

It looks like you jumped from the first post right to the end to write a post. Everything has been said here already, plus two times a link was offered to an explaining article with explanations and solutions.

Yep, Matthias, I just wanted to say my 2 cents about Snapshots default behaviour. If it's been fixed, cool (however, I didn’t find a confirmation about that in the topic).

Apart from that I really like and even love TotalMix for its flexibility.

Anyway, I customised all the Snapshots, set the whole damn faders to zero and save that to my own Workspace configuration long time ago.
