In all the provisions for gain adjustment on a file, is it possible to arrange a change in exact 2:1 (6.02… dB) steps? Specifically, shifting the values of the sample one bit position to the left or right, with the effect of increasing or decreasing the number of 0s in front of the first 1. keeping the values of all bits after that the same (except for underflow ). This is a ‘logical’ operation (Logical Shift Left, Logical Shift Right) that is present in most CPU instruction sets.
If it is not possible with present gain adjustment setting provisions, could it be added as an option? I admit this is mainly for ‘scientific’ rather than ‘musical’ purposes. This complements the often useful ‘BitMeter’ facility.
