  6. If the meter is showing high signal and the gain knob is turned all the way down, press the PAD button to reduce the signal level
  7. Adjust the gain knob until the signal level on screen for the channel being set shows around the -12 mark
    1. For media sources, play different files or tracks and/or different parts of files so that the gain isn't set too high because of a track with a low volume intro
  8. Bring the fader up to the desired volume level
  9. Repeat for any other channels that need to be set
