Hi There,

I am trying to set by audio levels on commercials we edit using Soundbooth CS3. I typically set my levels to what sorta looks/sounds good, without much science or formula to guide me. Now I am faced with uploading my videos to a tough critic. I have received the following request:

If you drop the audio to ±2db of analog 0 and resubmit them with different names then these should all pass. Audio levels: Music audio is good, all other audio peaks +6dB analog.

My question is, how do i set my levels to a specific DB? Is it a number i can punch in, or am I just looking at my audio graph and looking for the peaks? Am I right to assume Soundbooth shows me only digital audio levels. If so, how do I know what my analog levels would be. Thanks!

To do that, you will need to know what FS calibration standard they use. It sounds like they have no idea what they're doing. Common calibrations would be -6, -9, -10, -18,-20 and -22.
