Topic: Limit Arc USB Encoder to 0 dB (instead of 6 dB)

hi!
I am new to UFX II and Arc USB.
Is it possible to limit ARC USB encoder maximum value to 0 dB instead of 6 dB?

Re: Limit Arc USB Encoder to 0 dB (instead of 6 dB)

I like this idea.

I assume you want to control volume without having to look to the screen when 0dB have been reached to avoid distortion.

I think this would really be very practical and additionally:
- an ARC USB command to toggle this behaviour and
- settings in TM FX to define the default behaviour when the system starts up.

The recall feature is there to give you a reference point. The master fader on 0 dB does not mean it won't distort. Just the opposite, usually the sum needs a bigger attenuation when mixing and monitoring. IMHO this would just be a useless additional option making the list of these even more cluttered.

actually when I use UFX II via AES output I am getting clippings on my KRK ERGO input if master is higher than 0 dB.
I am making pretty loud EDM with limiter on master bus.
