What value do you set for "sound off" in live.dial decibel mode?

Hi,

-200 db, is that common "sound off" value?

Live will display -inf at -70 dB which is not sound off at all…
With common 24-bit interfaces, your are at -132 dB on the theoretical safe side. But then you get a pretty big range on your dial which displays -inf.
At 16-bit its -96 dB which is probably silent enough.
But I would really set the lower end to -70 dB and split -132. -70. and force it to -inf. I set the exponent to 0.33333….
