Hello everyone. What is the prime function of Vlevel and its optimal setting. Thank you in advance for your answersEg: You listen in a louder environment. Like in a car. Classical, orchestral music may have very quiet parts but also very loud ones. Rather a problem in a casual listening environment. You may be permanently fiddling the volume knob because sometimes you cannot hear anything, then later it is so loud, killing your ears. VLevel controls that for you in a reasonable way (i. e., not in a too nervously). Keeps levels up when it's quiet, takes volume down right before the big boom (Example: Mahler Sym. 6, ending of movement 4). Default settings are pretty good start.
Let me add to those reasons one more: Listening to old radio shows, and spoken live content. Voice volume fluctuated a lot at that time, specially when the speaker talks out of the mic when looking at others. A compresor just raises hum noise in that case but the voice stays almost the same (low) volume. Vlevel or volume leveling in general raises the volume dynamically in real time when this "holes" in audio appear. Think of this as "listening to podcasts with bad sound".
