Hi

Sorry if I've missed this, but I can't find any info in my product manual or online?

Can anyone tell me what the ULN-2 dbfs calibrated at? -18? -20? -16?

Many thanks

0dBFS produces +16.8 dBU at the analog outputs when set to +4 via the back panel switch.

Allen can you please help my understanding of this. Let me explain. I'm trying to get a better handle on gain staging with the ULN-2 and Ableton Live and the neo mixer. When working in LIVE, I'd like to push the the meters on an individual track as high as possible with out clipping the converters in the ULN-2. After doing some reading on the web I found out that there is standard set by the manufacturer of their respective AD/DA.

bearclaw asked the question of where the ULN-2 is calibrated at...

you said that...

0dbfs produces +16.8 dBU at the analog outputs when set to +4 via the back panel switch. Can you please elaborate on this statement?

In my mind i am thinking that the ULN-2 is calibrated at -16.8dbfs = 0dbvu when set to +4. from what you said and I'm not sure if i am correct in my thinking...

Thanks in advance...
