Chapter 12. Audio Tools and Techniques > Using Audio Peak Detection

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 its maximum amplitude of 0 dBfs; any part of the recording that exceeds 0 dB 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.
