Designer’s volume range is -60dB to 0dB while Studio’s range is -80dB to +10dB. It seems unlikely that the dynamic range has actually been altered so I imagine that it’s simply the granularity of control that’s been increased which would make Designer’s -60dB equal to Studio’s -80dB and 0dB = +10dB. Is this correct? If so it would follow that -8dB in Designer does not equal -8dB in Studio, so how does it translate? Is there a guide or formula on how volumes translate from Designer to Studio?
Or is it the case that it truly is a 1:1 translation but Studio gives the ability to boost the volume of a sample +10dB above its full sample volume (like many DAW’s) and simply increased the granularity below -60dB to allow for better control?
