Serato DJ AUTO GAIN setting?

DJ Baby Raj 4:41 AM - 8 November, 2012
Which db do you like using default 92 db? Would like to hear what others are using on the DDJ-SX. I was running 93 db on my S1.

I have always used 92db with all Serato software.

92db. been waiting on my sx, so been messing around with the stand alone and been noticing regardless of the setting its been setting the tracks gain too hot. can both hear and see it clipping in the software. just had to get used to adjusting the gain as well when i beat grid, probably something i should have been doing anyways.

Have been getting a very hot signal coming from the software into the main unit and have to keep the gains at about 9pm on the dial.

yeah unfortunately, the gain setting doesnt seem to make a difference. the gain setting will affect the over all level going out to the outboard mixer, but it still clips internal audio. so regardless of setting, regardless of mixer gain, you still have pops and clicks from the software over doing the levels on random tracks. its not a big deal if you're willing to sort your stuff manually, but for all those who expect results with no work - they're probably the people complaining about wheres my service

Yeah every time u tweak the gain db setting you have re-anaylze 1 file for testing then the whole library when your happy.

91db and keep trim levels at 9-10 on the 61.

I analyzed my tracks with 92db default,then i lowered it to 91 and 90db because my tracks were clipping and the volume level on the gains in serato dj are the same it didnt lower the volume.

Looks like i have to analyze my whole library again just for that kinda annoying.
