Yea I forgot about that!
I forgot too - I knew - but so rarely encountered the situation.
But with regard to the level changes on LOW between firmwares...
I was running my Avantone CK1 Omnis - split - about 25-30 feet from the stage - large-ish PA, classic JBL cabinets.
Sounding good - but I wouldn't call it loud.
I was on LOW - but was still getting more peaks than I was comfortable with - and I was already on the max low side of the knob without muting the channel.
Im thinking the older firmwares LOW setting would have handled this just fine...?
This was the first time I have run the Avantones since I got the DR-70D about a year and half ago - so I have no before and after firmware wise.
But this is the first time that I felt I was getting a level that I could NOT CONTROL with any combination of settings - short of engaging the mics 10db pad.
