It's not a myth.

"Gain staging is the process of managing the relative levels in each step of an audio signal flow to prevent introduction of noise and distortion. Ideal gain staging occurs when each component in an audio signal flow is receiving and transmitting signal in the optimum region of its dynamic range"

And here are about 38,700,000 articles about your 'myth':

If you still believe it's a myth, then record everything at 0dBfs then push your faders to +12dB on every track then tell us how great your master bus is sounding.

Equally, put a gain plugin before and after each plugin and boost by +24 then cut after it by -24. See how your music sounds.
