View actual dBFS level in Ableton on levels, making true stereo tracks in Ableton.

How can I view my actual dBFS level in Ableton. I would like a better reference than just the light up meters. So i can be sure to tell my headroom levels. Also is there a way to get true stereo on each channel by placing a stereo imaging plugin like so in logic. Thanks so much guys.

The channels in Ableton Live *are* stereo, you can use the PAN knob or an "Utility" plugin to handle stereo field.

To display the level value you need to drag the channel wider and taller via the lines separating the single channels (including Master).

Make sure to run through the tutorials and have a look into the manual (PDF included).

Thanks so much for clearing that up. I cannot believe I didn't know about dragging the channel bars above the fader, upwards to reveal Db levels. That was killing me. Def will read the actual software manual provided by Ableton to see What other useful tricks I'm missing out on. And I will use the stereo widening plugins to take full advantage of stereo channels. Thanks again mate!
