I made dB calibration on SAT live 1.32.2.20. It works good. Then, I deactivate "Use dB Calibration for MAT" but level at meters show -6 dB, and the number over the meters show 72 dB.
Where can I reset "Level at Digital Full Scale" again to 0.0 dB?

Hi,

the number over the VU meter is independet from the settings for the calibration (use calibration). It uses the reference value set at the calibration process. You can adjust the parameters for the display over the VU-meter in the popupmenu which shows up when you click on the display with the right mouse button.

I click with the right mouse button on the numbers of the display but nothing happens. I click with left mouse button and popup "Sound Level Display" appears. But in that window there is no level calibration for the numbers over the VU-meter.

Hi,

thanks for your feedback.
The number above the VU Meter is always a absolute value (i.e. related to a reference value).
There is a default value, which is overwritten if a level calibration is performed using the level calibration tool in the setup menu.

But, can we overwriten again to put it back to Full Scale? In my SAT live, the number is always over 50 dB. I really need to see the full scale value (-∞ to 0 dB). Can you do that Tomy?

Thanks again for your concern.

@chris

You might try version 1.32.2.27, which contains a 'Show Absolute Values' option in the popupmenu for the level display. Disable this option to get a reading related to DFS (Digital Full Scale).

@steffen

Which improvement would you like to see?
