Mixer: GAIN range when using keyboard entry

edited December 2017 in Bug reports

I'm setting the gains on my normalised samples, to match my mixer levels. This is because I'm importing songs as banks, and I don't think that my mixer levels are going to be imported with my patterns.

But I'm having trouble setting the gains using the keyboard:

  1. The fader on my mixer channel is set to -18dB.
  2. When I open the sample, the gain is set to -6.0dB
  3. I double-tap the encoder, the popup reads -6.0dB
  4. I double-tap -6.0dB and the popup reads "GAIN. Enter value between 0.00 and 3.98".
  5. I ignore this and enter -18 and click OK
  6. The GAIN now reads -infinity dB
  7. I double-tap the encoder again and hit Reset
  8. I manually move the dial to -18dB

The -18dB setting is possible by rotating the encoder, but not by entering a value.

If I just don't understand how this works, can someone please explain it to me? Thanks.

(Edit: I realise I should probably set the value to -24 to compensate for the original setting)


  • Set it to 0.12 and it will give you -18db, don't ask me why, i dont know, I even messaged @mathieugarcia about this nonsense again last night, this needs sorting out sharpish, and it is not just the gains, it is most of the dials.

    Need to make a full list to point him at to be honest.

  • Thanks - I'll use the French decimal system for now ;-)
