Question about metering points

I noticed the section in the manual about changing the metering point of the meter in a strip to pre, post, in, or out. When I’m setting a level for incoming vocal, should I be switching the meter to “in” ?

Yes or better yet use the metering on your preamp and interface to monitor the input stages as well.

I notice that when you arm the track for recording it automatically changes the metering point to input.
