What are the units being represented on the volume slider within a track Channel Settings window (it ranges from 00,40,30…0,0,6)? Also what are the units on the meter O/P that ranges from 50 to 0?
I have a mono file that has a peak value of -1.22db (using Wavelab). When I play the same mono file in a virgin Cubase 7.5 project, the peak value at the bottom of the Channel Setting meter only reaches -4.2. I was expecting -1.22 so probably trying to compare eggs with tomatoes! Why is their difference in value?
Appreciate if someone could clear this up for me.
