Using Audio Peak Detection

When you record audio (or capture prerecorded audio), you need to be especially careful about audio levels. Digital audio does not allow levels that exceed 0dB; any part of the recording that exceeds 0dB is clipped off. Clipped digital audio sounds nasty—snapping and crackling. If you're unlucky enough to have clipped audio in parts of your tracks and you're unable to recapture the audio at a lower level, you'll need to cut around it somehow.

The Audio Peak Detection feature is an analysis tool that scans an audio file that you select and places a marker in the clip at each location where the audio exceeds 0dB. Armed with this information, you can evaluate your over-crisp audio track and plan your recovery strategy.
