I suppose this would be the place to drop this off. Gets circulated enough...
Proper Audio Recording Levels | The Rants and Ravings of an Audio Mastering Engineer
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.
Kudo's (again) John.
Link? (to the other post..) Never mind. Found it.
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.
Great info from Massive!
My Focusrite - I only get the cute flashing green LED as well. Matter of fact if I'm using either line in or phantom for my condenser mic, I can't get close to red as it clips at the DAW anyway (Reaper). If I ever upgrade, I'm going to look for one that has actual meters (not sure if it's that important in the digital age but I like the feedback).
