Soft Clipping value

Hi Howie,

Thank you for helping us with your precious answers!

I wonder If you get any soft clipping from A/D converter at the end of your analog signal path?
If so, do you change how much to clip depending what is hitting most ?

Thank you

My Eclipse converter clips really nicely without artifacts. I have a really great monitoring environment so I can take very careful notice of the clipping.

Clipping can be great when done right, but really bad when done wrong on a bad mix.

Also, some converters clip really badly. I test converter clipping by driving them really hard until distortion, and then back off till it's clean. It's a great way to get loudness with no distortion.
