I am trying to understand about the best usage of the "normalize switch" (right click on audio event).
In the attached image there is two common situations I have found in my projects (the events bellow are the same and were "normalized").
Situation 1: Audio is low and I use normalize to increase the volume level.
Situation 2: Audio is loud and I use normalize to decrease the volume level.
I would appreciate help to understand these issues:
a) Is it a common feature to be used often? I am doing "normalize" very often...
b) Besides the situations 1/2 I mentioned, there would be other situations to apply "normalize"?
c) In Preferences/Audio I set "normalize peak level" to -3dB (Vegas default => - 0.1dB). I am not sure about what peak level should be the best reference. Is there such reference?
Thanks in advance,
