eightyeightkeys Posted August 14, 2004 Share Posted August 14, 2004 It seems as though the Pre-Master level should be safely anywhere between -10dbFS and -3dbFS to allow for headroom. from www.digido.com .....In 24-bit recording you can make a perfectly good mix that peaks between -3 and -10 dBFS with no loss of quality, in fact, with improved quality..... So, hypothetically, let's say I've done a mix that peaks at -10dbFS. I import it into SX2 for Mastering. I then insert a TC Electronic X3 or an L2, whatever, directly on the channel for some moderate compression and or limiting. What is the best way to bring that final master level up to -0.3dbFS? a)The Master fader ? Or, b)should I have brought the channel fader up before applying the limiter and leave the master fader alone? (You can really drive or clip the input of the plug-in this way though) eightyeightkeys Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
