We often have to hope for the best! But luckiely enough, some times it works!
To adjust the gain I do the following:
1. I listen to a song I know I normalized
at 90% more or less, and with a pair of decent headphones I set a given volume
I try to remember. Listening for 20 seconds or so helps.
2. I then go to the start recording screen, press play and try to adjust the
volume of the recording, untill the source sounds like the original song I listened
to before. Usually it works, though sometimes I also try to hear possible clipping
or distortions, and with a bit of patience, you can do a good job.
My biggest problem is knowing for sure, whether I'm in rec or pause. If using the
Mas on-off function posted by Bluechip, if a sort of small signal could be generated
when releasing the pause, that would be great. Or, even introducing a 1/10 second
silence in the headphones output when entering the pause-status, would also do.
Is something of that sort possible?
