It looks 100% correct to me, because you are inserting it in the channel insert then lowering the channel fader - so the Big Meter SHOULD read lower than Selig Gain because you are measuring two completely different levels.Thousand Ways wrote: ↑06 Jan 2021After getting more and more confused about what the Selig Gain is actually telling me – I mean that the numbers that pop up in the "Peak Hold" display are significantly higher than any of those reached by the peaks on the Big Meter at any point in the track – I've just had to disable it. It's beyond me.
Remember that the Big Meter may not show accurate channel levels if you alter ANY setting on the channel. But it will always show accurate output levels, so understanding your gain stages (like the fader) helps to explain what you're seeing.
Plus your text doesn't match your images. In #1 Selig Gain shows a peak hold of -6 dB but your text says it reads -28 dB - But you ALSO say "here the two meters match", when they do not match at all in your text or in your image.
Again, the first two images clearly show Selig Gain displaying "-6 dB" in the peak hold meter, but your text somehow comes up with -24 and -28 dB as the Peak level?
The numeric display in Selig Gain is 100% accurate, I just testing it once again. Remember, in the mode you're using, it will hold the highest peak indefinitely, so you won't see any indication of a level lower than what's on the display until you use Auto or hit Reset.
I hope you're not trying to use the tiny little LED meter on Selig Gain, which is NOT a peak hold meter and would be incredibly difficult to read an accurate level. Use the Peak Hold numeric display - that's what it's there for!
