Hello All - I have a new Mackie DL16s and am confused as to how to effectively use the Trim and Gain - having the biggest issue with acoustic guitar and lead vocals. Everything else is ok. if you are not familiar with Mackie Masterfader 5 which is also new to me. The challenge to me is the channel slider, master volume slider and then Gain and Trim.
Not professional, but I hope you all will let me stay. I have been mixing in a church since I was 17 or so, Finally have moved up to a Soundcraft Expression Si 3 Which is quite the rocket science. We are using a Multidigital card with USB out recording into Reaper on a windows PC. The Worship service is more like a Symphony than most churches I have seen. This can cause its own problems.
