Re: Measuring the ADC output of a sound card



The data you get is PCM, you cannot *really* tell if it's clipped but you 
can measure the received amplitude and determine whether it's close to the 
maximum possible. In a new program I am writing I show this info. The 
overload value in DLLCore is something like 90% of the maximum peak signal 
which can be returned (I can look at the source if needed).

Can you explain exactly what you want to do and what you want to see?
