Gain Staging in a DAW (blog.groove3.com)

This is a piece well worth reading and maybe some younger producers don't even consider it anyway. I don't agree fully as it can pay to introduce some gain staging going into your stereo output or say if you are working with analog modelled plugins such as a compressor that will respond as it would do in the analog world but as we have infinite headroom on our channels then it really doesn't matter as it used to in the analog world, I'm constantyl running into the reds on my individual channel strips, we should seek to abuse the gear imo ;) The main thing is that you are not running into the reds on your main output and that you use your ears to hear if the signal is distorting.....
