The master fader. You can use it set the level you want you A/D to see.  Moving the master doesn't affect the bus comp. 

CLA keeps his master at -10 to -15 so he is slamming the desk input and using the master fader to pull it down -10-15 db.

Are you all pegging the VU meters ?   I tend to calibrate my A/D somewhere like -12 or so. I don't try to smash the bus. never liked the way it sounds.

I am very conservative on levels myself -18dbFS on digital side and the VU peg if there are loud constant distorted guitars (higher RMS value) otherwise I try and keep them swinging ...I like to hear transients  ;)
