Just been tracking guitars for my music project, fluff (shameless self plug - got to be done) and I have been recording my tracks at -16dB like normal to allow for decent headroom within the project itself. I accidentally pressed the [N] key with a track selected and the soundwaves were boosted to just shy of 0dB. I use a Windows10 laptop with StudioOne5 with the Logic Pro key commands skin.
I experimented and used this command on all of my four guitar tracks at once just to see... and the same happened. Boosted to 0dB but I didn't clip the master bus which surprised me. SO my real question is: Is this [N] command just a straight level boost or is there more going on behind the scenes like limiting in order to get a rough levels mix without putting in the groundwork?
Many thanks and stay safe!
