Master level meters question

Hi guys, I’m waiting for my P4 but I’ve seen some videos and I have a question:

(1) Is the Master level meters (aka vumeter) pre or post Master Volume’s Knob?

If it’s post-knob:

  1. Is this behaviour user-selectable?
  2. Exists a request about that?

I like vumeters before master-knob becouse know if the sum of sources are at aceptable level or not. My previous mixers (Ecler SMAC, SMAC Pro, NUO) had this functionality, but I see that today they don’t work like that.

Maybe I’m confused (and old) and other mixers use different vumeter scales between channels and master.

Example 1:


Example 2:

Example 3:

I suppose this subject has been discussed, but I couldn’t find it.

Thanks :slight_smile:

The master VU meters are post-master knob. In my experience Denon mixers are always like this. If you have the master volume knob low, the meters barely move.

It’s not selectable between pre and post… there might be an option of adding a 10db attenuator… not sure, I’m not next to my prime 4 today.

I don’t remember seeing a request for changing the master volume knob to be switched between pre and post. Is this another home-to-internet radio broadcast streaming “must have” feature, which the forum is seeing quite a few different requests for?

@PKtheDJ thank you!
