I didn't know where to post this. I'm new to the forum.
I'm using Pro Tools 10.3.8 with HDX card, 192 Analog and a Mac Pro Intel.
I switched from a Mackie Big Knob to a Presonus Monitor Station V1.
The level meters on the Monitor Station are Peaked out almost continually.
Is there anyway to adjust the Monitor Station's main source input level to match my Pro Tools meter level?
Never had this problem with the Mackie Big Knob.

Yes. Check the manual. You hold one of the buttons during power up to change the meter max.

ok… after using the Monitor Station V1 now for a couple days.
I'm finding the meters aren't very accurate. They're close but not accurate.
When my Daw hits -3 DBFS the MS is peaked out in the red.
I did exactly what the manual said and they did calibrate.
I'm a little disappointed and now I'm wondering if the V2 is the same.
Maybe I'm just too particular but I want all my meters to read exactly the same.
