Having the Example of the how the internal mixer works in regards to 32 bit processing and clipping was entirely worth the price of admission. I've been running some of my own tests with various plug-ins parially because I can't really beleive it, but it's true and amazing. I cranked up the input and output of Ozone 4 for almost 40db of gain, popped a Gain plug-in after it and got a pure sine wave. I wish I had understood this years ago. I think because I came up through the final years of primarily analog studios I had just been in the habit of seeing clipping as clipping. You clip a channel or piece of gear in the analog domain, and you get distortion, sometimes good, sometims not, but there's nowhere to bring the gain back on the other side to remove it. So thanks for the mental can opener! bd
