Topic: setting the SNR per channel on the M-32 AD / DA Pro
I just got the M-32 AD Pro and the M-32 DA Pro.
I have some questions about setting the Analog Line Levels which can be done per channel which is awesome.
The problem is I don't have a clue on what setting to pick... (+13 dBU, +19 dBu, +24 dBu)
I have vintage analog synths like Roland Juno 106, SH-101.. Korg Poly-61 etc..
Those vintage synths always have more noise...
I also have more modern analogs like the Sequential Circuits OB-6, Deckard's Dream.. they have much less noise..
My digital synths (DX-7, M1) have virtually no noise..
I use vintage effects like Universal Audio 1176LN compressor with quite some noise, but also more modern analog gear like Overstayer Modular Channel with much less noise..
I use vintage drum machines : Roland TR-808, TR-909, 727, 707...
What about my Roland RE-201 Space Echo (using tape)?
Is there a rule of thumb here?
How can I calculate the ideal SNR setting for every piece of gear?
Can I just use +24 dBu on everything?
