    This is the read that got me tracking at better levels.

    This one simple thing has improved my recordings more than any thing else I've done.

    Very helpful, indeed. I actually wanted to show a tip that a friend gave me that was kind of related, but I'll post it separately in the forum

    you know,
    even after years of reading this stuff,
    actively using it in recordings,
    etc etc,
    it's still good to refresh and put things into perspective,

    good stuff, thanks!

    Just noticed you edited this after finding the link, but in case anyone else wants to take a quick look without searching for it:

    The advice my buddy gave me helped shave a lot of time off of finding the right volumes for my tracks and getting my sources to sound better than they otherwise would have.

    Thanks for posting this. Just so I understand fully, this is talking about the levels that show up in the DAW, correct? My old AI would allow me to see levels coming into it outside of the DAW with its own separate mixer program, but with my new one (Steinberg UR22), that doesn't seem to be an option. It just has a clip LED on each channel.
