Re: OT: setting the gain

What this (or the Facebook group) pushed me to do and which ended up 
making me much happier with the Boomerang III was to tune almost every 
element in my signal path for unity gain and then just account for being 
at instrument level rather than line level (I think those are the right 
terms) when I hit my mixer.

I don't know what the right answer would be for setting the gain on a 
boost pedal using the above advice if the goal of the boost really was to 
make things louder. I guess it would just be "set it to the amount of 
extra gain you want" but then you need to watch out downstream for devices 
that don't like hot signals (e.g., the Boomerang).
