Where did you get the idea that the meter reading needed to be doubled? Wrong! A good meter should be easy to read and calibrated.
And that Youtube video tells you nothing!
I don't think my multimeter measures in millivolt. Is this the one you're suggesting?

I know that Fluke make great multimeters, would the following be suitable?


Regarding the doubling of the volt reading, this was suggested in some videos I watched. I'll delete that info from the memory bank.


In relation to the youtube clip, is there a good resource that you know of that explains how to calibrate everything end to end properly?

I'm using pro tools with a RME UFX II and Antelope Orion Gen 3 AD/DA converters, together with some outboard analog gear (DBX 165a compressor, Eventide H3000, chandler TG2 pre amp)

Thanks for your advice!
