Sorry for the intrusion, but his is my loose interpretation of GML statement:
6db is the amount of dynamic range you get for every bit.
the original, recorded signal is using it's determined (fixed) amount of bits at each sample, once it goes in to the Plugin, you end up adding more information to the original signal even though you are not going any "louder" than the original peaks.........................Joaquin.
