Initially I thought that a compensation curve (according to the microphone response curve which is in dB power ( SPL)) in the Equalization effect would have to be entered in dB Amplitude (half the values in the mic specs) in order to achieve a flat response on the low frequency end of a microphone recording because I saw the spectral plots and other explanations using the word “amplitude”. However, it seems that everything related to spectra and amplification is actually calculated in power (SPL) because I found the reference in the Help under “Amplify and Normalize” … “whose peak amplitude is -6 dB (+0.5 to -0.5 on the vertical scale)”. … so you can just use the positive values of dB found in the microphone specs for the equalizer curve to get a flat mic response? I guess the labeling as amplitude in the software is just something you have to know about.
Do you think that is correct?
Is there a way to get the spectral plots to display in dB Amplitude and/or linear Amplitude?
