I’m not really a renoise beginner but i’m asking myself a question right now, because I browsed a few sites about mixing / mastering.
In renoise the master or individual tracks volume sliders, go from -xx to +3dB .
I made a sample sine wav at full volume, and when played in renoise with all sliders to “0 dB”, the peak doesn’t seem to be actually 0 dB. To render this wav at full volume, I have to set track and master volume to +3 .
I was just wondering why ? I don’t know anything really about dB’s, but mixing tutorials are talking about setting this and that to 0dB and in renoise the sound ends up lower than the original samples.
Thanks in advance for any explanation, sorry if my english’s not perfect.
