Sorry for simplifyed question
At this time, it depends on the standard you are going for. The EBU is working towards a standardized center of gravity of -23 LKFS, also known as "0 LU". If you'd like to practice using that as a standard I believe you can reset the 0 LU reference in the Orban meter preferences.
But if -23 LKFS is currently not your bag, then decide what you are trying to go for, and then practice using that to see how the meter reacts to different types of program material. Don't hesitate to tell us here what your reactions are. Also note that the ballistics have not been standardized, the Orban is more of a short term meter, but a strong case can be made for, say, a 10 second long-term average to help decide how loud the program is.
