Optimal Recording Levels

The Classic Tubes microphones are calibrated so that an input signal peaking around -12 to -10dBFS will match the original mic tone most accurately. 

You can use the VMR Trimmer module before the Classic Tubes module to monitor your input level as you record or adjust it later in the mix.

For special effect, you can drive the Classic Tubes Module harder to get more harmonics and tube saturation, and you can further amplify these characteristics with the intensity knob.
