Jason Montgomery says:

Reducing clip gain won't bring the input signal down?

But cant you change the input volume of the track in protools via clip gain. its a volume icon on the waveform

Cartier Quey says:

Good look bro

Angelvox1 says:

PT is calibrated for -18db. Although -6db can still be ok at times for peaks and transients is not optimal for gain staging a signal. Not sure where you get your info.

MMM Beats says:

How did you get your input meters to show -6db? Mines only show 0 – +15db

Joahua Johnston says:

What the hell man….. We were deep in hills and ya left us. Asssss clown

Richard Baker says:

Bro. You said to try getting the signal near -6db, but when i try that the noise floor (white noise) becomes obvious. Am I doing something wrong?

Break It Down with Rob says:

Good stuff.
