In audio engineering, a gain stage is a point during an audio signal flow that the engineer can make adjustments to the level,[1] such as a fader on a mixing console or in a DAW. Gain staging is the process of managing the relative levels in a series of gain stages to prevent introduction of noise and distortion.
