Re: Basic volume/meter question

all metering values are calculated over a specific time window. you can see by the way that the RMS meter lags slightly behind the peak meter that its time window is slightly longer than that used for the peak meter. in theory you can calculate a single RMS value that includes the current state of a...

Re: Volume Fader Question

the Live meters show peak and RMS levels. also, there are those small horizontal lines which are short-term peak hold meters. oh, and the number in the oval field is a long-term peak hold value (if you click on the value it resets to -infinity). peak levels show the absolute highest signal levels fo...

Re: Audio interface conundrum

what kind of cables are you using to connect your synths? if you are using TRS (balanced) cables and the synth outputs are unbalanced (most likely), then that can cause level loss. also, guitar pedals are not made to handle line level signals. https://www.soundonsound.com/sound-advice/q-there-better...
