BUILD 5002 (2019-...
Topic: BUILD 5002 (2019-05-30) -Don't apply master volume to recording
I guess I could always do a volume adjustment in the DAW to give the extra needed headroom, but I prefer the previous build's control since I use a headphone amp and only record at home.
I understand some people would prefer it this way now, but it would be nice if we could have an option to choose between both settings. How about a Recording Level Knob added to the Master Panel? I suppose that's not possible? or what about up to -18dB zeroDB as an option?

I don't think it will be very comfortable for the audience of your mix and I guess they would be running to the volume control at those moments

I usually just prefer with up to 4 songs blending and maybe 1 loop (filtered of course), some samples or effects and 1 drop playing to have around -7 to -8dB of final headroom. I rarely use compression or VST or EQ plugins, but I don't like to get too close to where I wouldn't have room to try out some creative things. Also, it creates very thick waveforms and I like that to be near the final stages of the mix. I can flange in and do double beats easier this way while hearing it clearly.
Lately, I've been applying a High-Density EQ gain of only around +0.02dB or less, and a limiter with a volume adjustment to get me right up to 0 or -1, -2, or -3dB for the loudest parts of the final mix, but sometimes I'd like to experiment with new VSTs and it's just a convenience to not have to make extra adjustments or waste extra CPU than what's necessary.
locodog, gave the solution of typing in the exact zeroDB needed and this solves my situation. Thanks for the information! I'm buying my VDJ license today!

Granted it doesn't sound very nice when/if it kicks in (there are better sounding plugins) but it keeps things in check.
I don't quite get why so much headroom is necessary either, because surely you're keeping an eye on the level meters as you're DJing?

I take my recorded mix segments and place them into the DAW and flange them into place. If you're mixing 2 tracks or 4 tracks as a live mix this isn't necessary with VDJ.
By the way, I'm Officially a VDJ Controllerist now!

It's the same sound going to the master out and record out

Note: All I need is just to "apply master volume to recording" and not the other way round. So a simple toggle/script would be nice to switch back and forth in next build. Would be grateful if considered.

Note: Newer build is smoother and my video overlay effects seem to have been fixed, I appreciate that!
