hi list

i use pd to perform live with few patches 
some to loop live vocals some for synth and some for samples
every patch has its own dac~ output and 
quite often i use more than one [*~] objects on the way put more than one track the signal line  so in the end it is quite hard to keep the sound level low enough to avoid distirtion

are there any good strategies to maintain pd output when using many patches at the same time?
shall i use any mixers, limiters, compressors, gates etc....

or  is there no other way than cleaning the mess and being very carefull with the volume

the point with playing live is a well known fact 
that when there is more than few tracks
if something is to quiet i turn it up
then something else is to quiet so i turn it up
then something else.....and so on that i get an uncomfortable fuzz in the end

i miss some master volume slider
