Topic: Attenuation Explanation Request
Can someone explain "attenuation" quantification? I thought that a 40 db attenuation (as set in SoundFont presets and instruments) would reduce waveform amplitude by a factor of 100; but I'm only seeing a factor of approximately 6.1 (16 db by my calculation). This doesn't appear to be a SynthFont/VieNa problem, because I see the same thing with SBLive/VieNNa.
What am I doing wrong?
