Multiplication Factor Input Volume Control

By setting my my input device to just clips and observing the setting that causes audacity to just show cliping, it appears that the multiplication factor is 1 at about -12 db or 80% on the input volume control. Can anyone verify that is approximately correct?

Audacity’s recording & playback sliders don’t amplify. They only attenuate. At 100% you have a gain (multiplication factor) of 1.0 = 0dB = no change.

Windows Microphone Boost can amplify.
