Post Subject: I am gaining somewhere .5dB and I do not know where.Posted by Romy the Cat on: 2/21/2010

I am trying to find out where I picking up .5dB, I have no idea at this point where. The recording is made from tape loop of my preams into Pacific Microsonics. The meter of Pacific show that at the very loudest peaks the signal stay at minus .15db digital and the clipping indictor never does off. Pacific meter has option to monitor the last dB with insane possession. So, I know that on A/D level I did not hit 0dB.

The Lynx card and WaveLab 6.0 shall be in unity gain but the they are apparently not as the graph of the recording is clearly indicate in a few place hitting 0dB and clipping of the transient. So, I wonder where that gain, I would estimate .5dB, is coming from? I certainly do not what to digitally attenuate any WaveLab of Lynx setting but I would like WaveLab and Lynx to abbey the Pacific’s recording level. I need to find out what is going on.

The LP itself a bit hard – that is true but clipping itself shall create a very strong HF pressure, if it is a true clipping but not just the errors of WaveLab graph.
