Leave Headroom in your Tracks

Interesting video: Steinberg Studio Sessions S02EP3 – Martin Eyererheadroom1

My learning:

  • On every track leave around 3 db headroom on your tracks: i.e. have the volume of every track in your sequencer not go louder than -3db.
  • This will allow you at the end to still have headroom to play with if you want to enforce a sound here and there during mixing stage.
  • Also leave 3db to 6 db on master channel (max from -6db to -3db) so that the mastering engineer still has room to play with.
