Real "Mute" function instead of just lowering volume!

Reply #25
Many thanks for the "Mute" display in 0.9.6.2 Peter!

Still, when using ASIO output (1.2.6) the mute function isn't working properly! It just decreases the volume by 100dB


FIXED (1.2.7)

I guess it only "works" with the Default UI, Columns UI still shows -100dB.

In the status bar. Now we get "Mute" instead of "-100dB" displayed on mute.


But when using the ASIO output, mute only decreases the volume by 100dB instead of say about -144dB (which would be a real mute on 24bit soundcards). Why is this? Nobody can answer to that?

-144 dB would not be a real mute if the 24-bit audio is properly dithered from 32-bit float because the dither noise is spread over the whole audio spectrum, meaning that signals could still be distinguished. However, this is only a technical matter as the LSB of 24-bit is well below the thermal noise floor of any line-level electronics unless your DAC is cryogenically cooled!

Ok you're right (if the volume control is done in 32bit float).


Just wanted to say that -100dB makes no sense at the moment. Should be fixed.
