Hello, does anyone know what the best gain level to set my para DI when using the Anthem pick-up?

With regards to setting optimal gain for nearly any signal, the "Setting the Gain" section of the Para DI manual outlines the best method - essentially this: hit the strings at a hard dynamic level and turn up the gain while doing so until the signal overdrives, then back the gain off until it is clean at the hard playing dynamic. The trick is to strum or pick as hard as you are ever likely to in a performance, using that as your reference input signal for gain setting. Gain set by that reference should ensure you a clean signal throughout your dynamic range.
