A common scenario . . .
You're setting up your sound system and it's time to connect up the amplifiers. Where do you turn the knob on the amp? Hmm . . . 12 o'clock looks good. Well, believe it or not, there is actually a correct position to turn that knob to and it can be calculated.
Enter GainSet . . .
GainSet is a computer program that does this calculation for you. Using information you provide about your system, GainSet will show you the gain setting for your amplifier that will provide the highest signal to noise ratio and the "hottest" signal you can achieve before your system clips.
GainSet is a computer program for sound professionals brought to you by Jason Romney and Michel Marrano of the North Carolina School of the Arts Theatre Sound Design program.
The only thing the authors ask in return is that you help them make GainSet better by submitting your equipment data to be included in a future version of GainSet. Contact details at their website.
