I’ve been using Cubase 7 for a few months now and have become fairly comfortable with it. But I am still having problems with one area, reading the meters.
When the output channel meter goes in the red, I can’t see where to tell how many decibels over it is so I can lower the other levels by that amount. Essentially I just lower sliders until the meter stops turning red. But that’s not a very scientific way of doing things.
So is there some way to tell exactly how many decibels I am over zero so I can lower my input by that much? I’m sure it’s something simple but I just can’t figure it out.
Thanks for your help.
