I'm recently doing a lot with GlissEQ (which is meant as a compliment! :), including some rather "technical" stuff (sorry, I have a strongly technical background).  Recently, I pushed white noise through GlissEQ, and while that displays correctly as a flat line when "Slope" is set to 0.0, it seems that when I apply EQ (no matter if I use GlissEQ itself or a different EQ), the spectrum display is off by a factor of 2.  For example, if I apply a peaking filter at 1 kHz with 18 dB gain, the graph will only show 9 dB:

A different spectrum analyser correctly shows an 18 dB peak.


Well, "factor of 2" is of course wrong -- the dB scale on the left is off by a factor of 2, actually.

You are right - spectrum does not follow dB scale on the left. dB scale on the left is for the equalizer.  Spectrum display is meant to be adjusted visually - there is little need for exact dB values.

Not True, it would be very useful.  I use that spectrum disply all the time for testing gear, i run pink noise through the gear then into the gliss eq to see what the gear does to the pink noise, db scale would be very helpful.

I should also mention i cannot use Span for this because it does not have the import export feature, that would be really nice to have in that plug btw.

I think both these features will be implemented in the future major update.

This is why we love you :)
