HQPlayer - gain compensation in pipeline matrix

I’ve seen a good tip by @jussi_laako , if you want to check if you have sufficient gain compensation set in HQPlayer.

You can use REW (free) to easily generate a .WAV file frequency sweep

Play this file through HQPlayer and watch the “Limited” counter while playing the file.

Best to turn off amplifier while playing this file. Or at the very minimum turn volume all the way down, just to avoid any potential for clipping speakers/headphones.

If Limited stays at 0, then you have enough gain compensation in HQPlayer. If not, then reduce gain number in pipeline matrix until Limited stays at 0.
