Yes, in Boost Rev B the value can be set by double clicking the text value. It can be set between 2ms and 45ms.
When Focus is at 0 the central Boost knob does correspond to a between 0dB and 12dB increase, HOWEVER, as soon as you move focus this changes the amount of boost so that more is applied to quieter passages. At max focus, Boost is designed so that it never hits the limiter, instead applying 0dB gain to values that are already at 0dBFS. If the input (after the pre-control) is greater than 0dBFS then the compressor / limiter will always apply -ve gain to keep it under 0dBFS (e.g. the limiter kicks in). The above is a simplified explanation of Peak Remapping technology this along with the behaviour of the controls are also mentioned in the manual.
If you want to specify an absolute gain in dB, the input gain slider on the left can achieve this. With the Boost knob and Focus at 0 the peak limiter will still activate to keep the signal below 0dBFS.
Intersample Peaks or intersample overs describe the phenomenon of oversampling revealing higher peaks that can distort DACs during playback.
The new Clarity intersample evaluator in Boost Rev B removes intersample peaks without distortion or phase change.
We recomend that you only use the true peak mode for the last instance on the master chain as any other processing can re-introduce inter sample peaks.
