I've asked a question about what audio volume to use when recording:
In there, I learned that:
- I should avoid too high a volume, to prevent clipping
- I should avoid too low a volume, to prevent loss of resolution
The question now is: What is too high a volume? What is too low? I am setting the volume via the GUI for sound config. It has an unamplified setting, a 100% setting, and volumes beyond 100%.
After 100%, is there still resolution loss? How can I tell if there is clipping going on (given that my recording program is the non-GUI ffmpeg)?
