Boss GT-10: The correct input signal level for a transparent sound without digital distortions

Statements found in the internet about the signal level

You almost get one answer when dealing with the question about the signal level: "Use the highest possible signal level because otherwise the Boss GT-8 and GT-10 analog / digital conversion will produce undesirable low quality results (digital aliasing)." Simultaneously you are pointed to the fact that you must not overdrive the input of the Boss GT AD-converter because then you'll get a lot of digital distortions. But, how to get the optimal input signal level?

The signal level when recording in a studio

Of course in a studio you also try to get the highest possible input level. But when mixing the tracks the level is set to -10dB or lower! That means that the supposed valuable bits aren't as valuable as thought. The prevention of digital distortions is much more important then some lost bits.
In the studio the input level is set as low as necessary to prevent digital distortions in any case!.

What's with our Boss GT-10 and GT-8?

The same rules apply to the Boss GT-8 and GT-10. Like told above for the studio recording always set the input level as low as necessary.
The best way to test the input signal level is using a humbucker equipped guitar and the guitar simulator of the FX1 effect set to H→S. This combination creates a high output (humbucker) with a lot of highs (guitar simulator) and you can easy listen to the created distortion when the input signal is too high.

No it doesn't sound better.
But, it will stop the buzz.

The electromagnetic field of CRT monitors, fluorescent tubes or transformers creates a 50 or 60 Hz buzz within your pickups. Therefore keep away from them or use humbucker pickups.

A potential (voltage) difference between devices like the boss and your amp produces hum or buzz. The behringer contains 2 shielded transformers which cuts off the signal ground between the boss and your amp. This eliminates the voltage difference and therefore the hum.

Whithout the GT10 there is no buzz?
Answers
1) No buzz:
Between the GT10 and your Amp is a ground loop. Use a device like the Behringer MICROHD HD400.
2) Yes there is still buzz:
You've a problem with your pickups.

Important: Keep away from CRT monitors, fluorescent tubes or transformers! They produce an electromagnetic field.

It's a ground loop.
How did you connect the GT10?

Try the GT-10 with a different computer. I had a lot of problems with my usb audio interface. The problem was my pc but not the audio interface.
