Default LA-610 MK II settings

I know this is like asking how do you potty train a child. Since they're are to many variables I am asking preferences.

So what are your preferred settings?

And before you tell me to use my ear, (lol which I have) I'm using your opinion to hear what sounds other people strive for to further my experience. Hey you might benefit off this like i will.

I bypass the compressor section and set the in and out levels for the proper level on the track, with the desired amount of drive(input vs output). Select the impedance setting that sounds the best. Then engage the compressor and set for the desired amount of GR(and reset the final output if needed).

I usually have the left side gain on +10. According to the user manual you get most out of the warm tube sound this way. The level around 5 and right side gain at about 5. When limiting/compressing I set the peak reduction between 2 and 3.

But it varies and depends on the source. I'v barely touched the eq section. When recording with a microphone I rather place the mic like I want rather than using the eq.

I prefer the recording sounding as finished as possible, so I don't have to do any post processing.

What mic are both of your running through it? I have been wanting to upgrade my mic and was thinking of the TLM series. I currently have been running a blue bird.

Also has anyone upgraded the tubes on these? If so which kind? and was it worth the dollars?
