A common question that people send to Jeff and me as the support staff at Wildlife Acoustics deals with how people should adjust their recorder settings. In particular, how to set gain.

How should I set the gain on my recorder?” The documentation for our equipment provides some suggested starting points, but I always tell customers they should test out their settings and make adjustments if necessary.
