Thanks You for chiming in Mr.Katz. I am really happy that I could get some advice from You.
As for the FF800- I meant the RME Fireface 800
interface. I think they fully implemented all of the K metering systems. I just found out yesterday that I could switch to K12, k14 or k20 and I think those meters are pretty ok, as they are implemented within the hardware.
So tu summ up- I just should mix by ear, not by meters and just look up at the K14 meter from time to time to check if the peaks are not too loud And as I understood the final mix should oscillate around Odb on the K14 meter. Right?
Oh- one more thing- I do not have the 1db step attenuator. For now I have to cope with ATTY which is ok, but does not have the 1db per step function. I was thinking about solving this differently. Since I marked the 77db point on ATTY with the SPL meter, does it make sense to simply measure the SPL with the same pink noise at 76, then 75, 74 and so on and mark each one just for the reference? Does it make sense ot the stepped attenuator is a must?
As for the mixing- I have not yet mixed at this system, but the idea of getting away from the loudness war's is perfeclty reasonable, and I am really thankfull, that You have opened my eyes on some very common and very destructive myths that are widely spread among audio engeeners- I was among them till I read You article about the K metering system. Thank You one more time thumbsup
