VST plugin levels

Hi, there!

Can VST plugin produce signal louder than 0 dBFs?
Can it make overload on input of next VST plugin in chain?

Of course, actually most VSTis do with just their standard presets :wink:

Yes it can and will overload your signal chain if it’s too hot. Use the gain slider in the pre section to calm it down to a proper level. Most plugins expect a level of -18 dbFS. The whole thing is called ‘gain staging’, lot of topics here and some good stuff on Youtube that explains what’s going on.

Thank You, marQs.
