    i just set my input gain on my preamp to wherever i need to get what i want...
    and the output i set for a nice level coming into totalmix....
    no need to put the gain up at all,
    unless your preamp output is weak,
    which shouldn't be, if you have gain staged correctly.

    Take the track off stereo. +4dbu.

    If you want, you can use the Rme preamp like a trim control too help get the level dialed in, but this isn't necessary.

    I make some videos. This one shows how to do a physical loopback on the RME UCX to get many more equalizer nodes.
