I've noticed a peculiarity of the H2 in that the levels it displays on the recorder itself does not match up exactly with the levels of Pro Tools - i.e. I'll think I'm clipping on the H2 by looking at the levels alone but when I dump it into Pro Tools the audio has at least 2 or 3 more dB of headroom.

Has anyone else noticed this? Is there an update or option I haven't found out about yet from the manual to switch metering methods?

I've noticed this as well. Not sure why it is. One of these days I'll actually put tone into the thing and see what the jam is.

  • Yes! I'm not crazy after all!
