Hi , i try the peak clipping option with soft and hard , and i have “overshoot” over 0db(red “true peak”) , I have put the ouptut level to -1db .

I use the 64 bits vst3 version .

I hope than i’m wrong …



Hi @sebastien.wittebolle,
We might need to explain it better or think how we show it properly.
Clipping is peak based.
Metering is now true peak based.

So even though you’re clipping in 0.0dBFS PEAK, True Peak evaluation might consider it as a greater peak.

If you have any suggestions, let us know!

ok , i understand better now.

May be adding a true peak limiter will be good.I have this by a other plugin ( isl (inter sample limiter by nugen)), but all in one is better i think , no?



I would say a FINAL true peak limiter.
