Topic: Correct settings in TotalMix (and studio monitors)
I have connected my studio monitors to my RME Fireface UFXII with balanced cable.
The Volume settings on the monitors are at “0” dB (min is -12dB, max is +12 dB)
To be able to have a comfortable listening volume for composing/mixing I need to set the output level fader
in TotalMix to -18dB, surely not more than -16dB. I am aiming in my acoustically treated room 74-76 dBC SPL.
The Output setting in TotalMix is is set to +4dBu mode.
Note: I am composing/creating orchestral film music.
How shall I proceed? Shall I lover the monitor's volume to -12dB setting and use higher volume in TotalMix?
And/or shall I use a different settings in TotalMix? (-10 dB, High Gain, +24 dBu)
Any advice/help is very much welcome and highly appreciated.
