I’m measuring the electrical characteristics of my SoundGrid hardware channel IO, and would be interested in learning if anyone has gone down this road before.
Specifically, I’m generating tones that reach maximum output peak (digital max) and measuring their voltages on the outputs. I’m finding that digital -0.7dB is about the highest I can go without running into headroom issues.
This is accomplished by using the eMO Generator (sine wave) as an only plug-in on a channel in LV1, and monitoring the output on an oscilloscope.
I’m just getting started running experiments, so I haven’t reached any conclusions yet, but with what I’m seeing, I’m going to be limiting my signals to < -1dB for safety.
Any feedback/thoughts will be appreciated.
