    Adaptive Limiter
    Hello again everyone:) Well, I have another question to ask: On my final mix I have put a LIMITER on the output channel, but I can see the level meter is clipping (red), not the # itself, but the actual level meter is clipping RED at the very top of the meter. Is that ok? Thanks. Jodie

    Hi Jodie, How are you doing? If you are using the Adaptive Limiter then you could reduce the out limit to -0.1 to stop it clipping. To answer your question, there are two schools of thought. One is that clipping is always bad, bad, bad! The other encourages you to use & trust your ears and judge the quality of the sound accordingly (and also to give your ears a break and come back and listen to the track later). Hope that helps :-) Rounik

    Hi, Is your output fader set to 0 dB ? The inserts are Pre-Fader so if you raise the Channel Strip gain the audio will clip. Please tell us if your issue is solved. Christian

    Heh Christian. How ya doin? Yeah, the Output channel strip is at 0dB. I always keep it at 0. That's right, right? I can still see the level meter clipping RED though. Thanks. Jodie

    Hi Jodie, Yes, Odb on your output channel strip is right. Do send it as Christian suggested or by PM. I'd also be interested to check out what's happening. Cheers, Rounik

    Hey Jodie, Still upload it to either of the following sites: [url]http://www.sendspace.com[/url] or [url]http://www.yousendit.com[/url] and at the bottom of my post click on "Message". This takes you to a page where you can send a private message to me with the address of the uploaded project. Do the same for Christian too... BTW, remember to zip the Logic project first. (Ctrl-click on the project folder and select "Compress". Cheers Rounik
