Playback Volume

This command displays a playback level meter and allows adjusting the playback volume.

The horizontal slider and the + / - buttons modify a digital gain that is applied to the (digital) samples before they are transferred to the playback hardware. The default setting of 0 dB does not change the original sample amplitude (retrieve the default settings by clicking at the Default! button). Note that depending on the dBFS level of the samples in the sound files, a gain setting larger than 0 dB may lead to digital clipping. The checkbox on the left hand side of the Default button will automatically launch the Playback Volume box once a sound file is being played.

On a stereo file, the (default) ganged option will adjust both channels simultaneously.
