Re: An urgent message about digital noise reduction

(Note to self ) Even the operation "Remove DC Bias" can cause digital clipping. I always remove it because I figure it is an artifact introduced by the recording gear, but since it shifts the whole waveform up or down, it can clip off "wavetops" in the direction it is shifting the waveform.

And using the "replaygain" tags in flac files and editing them to your liking can eliminate the need for a final normalization, but you still have to find the right levels when A/D'ing from analog sources.
