Default Re: Avid Pre calibration question

Compare against each other(adjust trimmers on the Pre for identical readings). And, compare against the output level of the signal gen track. This might not be technically "perfect", but certainly can result in matching levels
Seems like that would work. Though it totally ignores Avid's User Guide mention that the inbuilt oscillator can be used to calibrate the Pre. I assume they had some reason to add the additional (non-free) circuitry to the unit.
