Re: An urgent message about digital noise reduction

clipping can also be intruduced thru an ANA > ANA transfer.

best thing to do is record a bit at a safe level which is too low, zoom in on the peaks and see what clipping exists on the master. then crank it up slowly, each time checking if the peaks are still okay. back it up a couple db from the top and run the whole tape.

and watch out. vu meters look cool and everything but they're averaging meters and won't always show momentary spikes. give a gander in a wav editor to really see how good your transfer is. Also, compare with your ears. Something is always lost, but you can minimize that by cross-checking frequently.
