    Question about recording levels
    Hello. I just noticed the Live 6 video is out. Awesome. I'm going to get at it as soon as I'm done posting here. In the mean time, I have a question... I use Live 6 for recording vocals a lot. The Live mixer only show if the levels are clipping (red) or not (green), right? Is there a way to see in more detail how hot/cold the incoming levels are (post A/D stage) in Live? If not, is there a good utility you recommend? Thanks. Alright, going to get the Live 6 video now..

    Hiya papercut...forgive if I'm telling you something you know already; the mixer in Live 6's session view is scalable, and gives a lot more info than the mixer in previous versions. It have a peak level indicator, which continous updates to show the latest peak, and can be reset at any time by clicking on it. Does this help? You can't view the expanded mixer in session view, but just hit 'tab' to switch between views. I would prefer to be able to view the expanded mixer in either view - maybe in Live 7! :-)

    Wow. No, I didn't know that. I just tested it out, and that's exactly what I was looking for. I never use session when I'm tracking, but I guess I'm going to be using it from now on when checking levels. I wish they made this feature available in arrangement as well, though. Thanks a bunch for the tip, and also for the Live 6 video.
