How to understand colors in Analysis in the dbFS graph?

Hello friends,

When I look the dBFS graphs in Export/Report Analysis, I see yellow and blue.
What does mean each of these colors in these graphs?
Here’s the screenshot :

  • Red: signal is >= 0dBFS (clipping)
  • Yellow: Signal is >= -1dBTP
  • Blue (grows inward): amount of gain reduction by the limiter

Thanks Robin :+1:
Does it means that the blue color can appears only when there’s a limiter on the master bus?
(here it is: x42 DPL plugin is on the master bus)

A limiter during export… (The Ardour Manual - Export Format Profiles) e.g.


It’s now clear to me :smiley:
Thanks again Robin :+1:
