I am reading a book called "Recording and producing in the home studio: a complete guide" and one section brought up an interesting point I hadn't thought of. See I have been lowering the input volume of my captures and then increasing the volume during mix so I don't run the risk of digital clipping. This book says that might be mistaken:
Then it goes on to talk about 0 db and how digital clipping really sucks. This honestly makes a lot of sense to me now knowing what the bit depth is for (quantizing). What do you guys that have been doing this for a while think?Most people push digital recording levels to allow for the use of greater bit depth. Utilizing the entire bit depth provides the most accurate picture of the analog wave form.
