ReMix Amplitude Levels

Reason has a lot of amplitude controls, so getting the levels right gets very confusing - which level should you change, and what effect will it have on the rest of the chain?

It's not helped by different controls in different devices working on different scales - in fact the level of the Redrum lanes seems to use a different scale from the Redrum master level!

I can't make it all simple, but I can map the 128 levels of the ReMix unit to decibel levels, assuming 127 corresponds to zero, without clipping. The Master level uses the same scale as the strips.

The first column is the level, the second the number in decibels the signal is reduced by at that level, and the third is the same set, but shifted so the default level of 100 is parity, and levels above are boosts.

Level _ _ _ _ _ 128=0_ _ _ _ _ 100=0

The scale is on a very gentle, almost linear curve that only gets steep around the lowest ten levels.

If you want the short version, here's the easy reference to stick on your wall:

Boost 6db - 123
Boost 4.5db - 117
Boost 3db - 111
Boost 1.5db - 105/106

No Change - 0

Cut 1.5 db - 94/95
Cut 3db - 89
Cut 4.5db - 84
Cut 6db - 79
Cut 7.5db - 74
Cut 9db - 69
Cut 10.5db - 64/65
Cut 12db - 59/60
