Default Re: MD3 and Brickwall Limiter - How to prevent bus clipping?

Or is the Pro Tools bus so high-resolution that it doesn't matter when the MD3 is driven less "hot"?

I'm using PT 8.1.1 on HD 3 Accel

Any plugin will have to have a level of at least -0.1db or ideally -0.2db below -0dbfs when feeding another plugin or going out of a channel or aux. providing you do this nothing should peak or clip etc.
