Thanks for your analysis and feedback on that!
Rekordbox V5.8 AUTOGAIN is very good : LUFS measurements
Since Channel level meters of DDJ1000 are now ok with new V5.8, I've done some measurements of the Autogain and several HEADROOM :
The best to have -13/-14 LUFS (perceived sound, not like peak RMS), my best settings in Rekordbox :
Headroom - 3 dB / Autogain on (for analysed track) ( my settings)
But if you are afraid that effects assigned to the deck or main master add dB or saturate original track, you can set safe Headroom at - 6dB / Autogain (for analysed track)
i think - 9dB is to low for internal mixing.
Rekordbox : very good autogain at - 3dB/ -6dB of Headroom
Thanks Pioneer ! (But you have to fix for 5.9 or V6 the internal recording level that work only with an Headroom of - 9dB, an not with -3/-6 Headroom (Bug in 5.8 and past versions), anyway, i don't use internal recording.... i use virtual loopback cable as master out :) )
Thanks Pioneer for this very good audio engine : AUTOGAIN / LUFS
i wasn't aware of that thanx for pointing out :D
Is there a difference in record quality with Rekordbox free and paid?
Hello! The mentioned problem is still around in rekordbox! I've tried and tested what Olivier explained and experienced the same results! The headroom is messed up for internal recording after you modfied the values! The test record file is compressed!
