SQN Mixing is my job on set and thus I have been doing some research to figure out the best way to do this.
The ideal position for the SQN sound control wheel is between 10-12 O'clock as this gives limited amount of background chatter and noise with an optimum amount of clear direct sound.
Gang switch OFF!
Limiter (WHITE) switched to Manual mode (This controls peaks and gives a smooth roll off)
Attenuator (UNDER WHEEL) Off
