I dont know what you mean by an issue. I was just trying to understand some of the theory. I didnt understand why much of the text says that the noise is raised, when noise is below the threshold and everything under the threshold was supposed to be unaffected. From what I can tell it is raising the make up gain that does this, which makes sense, however none of the text I have read has said that. Although in practice I have also most of the time used the make up gain I dont always.

Masterer says that it is a question of relativity and that is what I originally I had thought. But it seems like a subtle detail and I think I get a better feel for this now.

thanks for the great responses!
