Better off attenuating input and have a fixed gain - with no distortion.
So the usual is to set your gain to a set amount with no distortion for a certain type of input. That makes sense. In this case we could be dealing with different types of input though and specifically wanting to chase down subtle noises or just general troubleshooting at full levels...

Yeah, me too. I was really expecting this to be one of my simpler projects, and it's turning out to be a lot more complicated.

At least I found some perf board. Does anyone have a good schematic/layout tool they use? I haven't looked into it yet, but I think I'll use something like that to get the arrangement to how I like it first...
