normalizing works by adding bits to the actual sample(right?)
If I understand correctly, the software volume control acutally only 'reduces' the volume - from 0 to -96. It cannot 'increase' it.So at max volume level the actual sample value is used, and at say 50% volume the actual sample value is divided by 2 before its passed on ?Am I thinking this through correctly ? If this is correct then does this messing around with the actual/real sample value in any way affect the sound ?
.and then truncates it.
