Clipping test tracks

Here’s my new goto song for headroom adjustment for clipping:

Album Artist Album Disc# Track# Title Source
Infected Mushroom Head of NASA and the 2 Amish Boys 1 1 Bliss on Mushrooms Tidal

About 5:30 minutes into the track the rythm will change and your digital filters will require another -1.5dB headroom even on top of Californification which used to be my previous clipping test track.

Dumb question maybe, but what about using a 0dB sine sweep to be sure?
That‘s how I always do it…


I should try that but at which frequency?

… from 10Hz to 24kHz, for example …

I often will play Little by Little to check. The bass will clip early on if there’s a problem:
