Appropriate input peak levels when tracking
Been an ableton user for several years now. steady attending YouTube University on learning the craft. I am having trouble weeding through the answers to this particular question tho. and that is...Say I am going to record a singer/songwriter. Just a simple scenario of:
Track 1 Guitar
Track 2 VOx
Track 3 scratch midi drums(in place of annoying metronome)
What are the desired db level to shoot for while recording these tracks. One that will assure I have a good solid signal and headroom for mix/master.
While your at it...say I'm going to hand this to someone to master...what should my master be peaking at to give them space to work with?(this question I have found many answers for...but might as well get as many opinions as I can.
Thanks for your time!
