    Well, it would be -inf dB, technically, but I think the way LUFS works is it sorts volume into bins and does a histogram of them, ignoring certain sections or something, so probably whatever algorithm they have has some lower limit. Either that or it takes log(peak_amplitude) and then clamps it to something. Shrug.

    ahh yes got it...maybe will see how they handle bit depths/ db & find the lowest volumes 1 can upload just out of curiousities... cheers!
