If I am using the wrong terminology; please forgive and correct me accordingly. Gently please I sat down today with the intention of tweaking my presets so as to be able to utilize 100% of my volume knob on the Amplifire itself. I used the procedure outlined by Jay as well as some helpful interpretation/thought process redirection from 3dognate. To say it felt like a very tedious exercise is a complete understatement. Ugh. So many variables with questions attached. Again, UGH. There is a signal level light on my Alesis powered monitor. I am assuming it is relative to the output level knobs on the speaker itself, as it only begins to light solidly when the levels are turned up. Which is really irritating as I thought I could get a sense of input levels with the Alesis volume knobs turned down. UGH. Should I ignore this signal level light? Or is it yet another &*%$ing piece to be adjusted of this irritating puzzle?
