Re: Red Light and Volume Control

I find it quite easy to see if it's in the red - there is a distict change in color between being in the yellow and going into the red. If you don't see that perhaps you just need to push the volume up higher until you do see it (& possibly hear the distortion).
The other method I use is not to look at all - just listen and ensure their is no distortion - however that method will not be helpful for you I don't think.
Actually, that's how I've been doing it, by listening. The red light is for reference. I put it up to the top of yellow, and that's where I have trouble seeing if the red glows or not. I do see it but it's subtle. Then I bring it down and listen for any distortion.
