    STEPS TO CALIBRATE YOUR DAW
    Step 1: Open your DAW
    Step 2: Play -20dBfs rms pink noise through one speaker at a time
    Step 3: Use SPL meter at mix position set to C weighting, and slow response time
    Step 4: Turn up or down the first speaker until it measures 79dB SPL (Small Edit Suite typically for Broadcast or Games) or 85dB SPL ( Large Edit Suite for Film) on the SPL meter
    Step 5: Continue this process with EACH individual speaker one at a time, muting all other speakers, until they all measure 79dB SPL(Broadcast or Games) or 85dB SPL ( Film) on the SPL meter
    Step 6: Mark the output level on your mixer, monitor controller, and whatever else effects your overall volume


    what are best calbration rate for electronic music 79db or 85db
    what are you using and on what martirial...?

    it has nothing to do with calibrating but its pretty funny that sweetspot for analog emu is -18 rms

    I went with a mark for 80dB SPL for music and a louder one at 87dB SPL for everything else. Just mark your monitor controller/external attenuation if you have one.

    If you need to only choose one I would go for the the louder 85dB SPL (this will cause you to use less gain and compression.)

    You can always squash the tracks later; it's a lot harder to raise a roof than it is to cut the grass.
