When do I need the Gain switch?

Usually you will record with the Gain set to “High”, for speech, vocals or acoustic guitar.
In case you want to use the microphone really close to the sound source or with louder
instruments (electric guitar), you should consider to switch to “Low”. This avoids
overdrive and distortion. Have a look at your recording software’s level meter to choose
the right microphone gain.
