Default Re: Proper Recording Levels

A bit meter can help you with quality levels. If you are recording 16 bit which no one hardly does, it's critical to keep your levels hot as possible without touching red. You can end up with 8 bit audio and less if the level goes down to far. 24 bit makes it less relevant. In theory, 32 bit float is supposed to keep the audio pristine at all levels. So for 24 bit, keep it green and yellow, never red.
bit depth=dynamic range
