Audacity, beginning with version 2.3.0 has introduced the feature “Punch and Roll”. Punch and Roll is used by Podcasters, Voice Over Artists and anyone that records direct to Audacity that likes to correct mistakes, when they occur rather than after the recording is finished. Having the ability to make corrections to your audio during your recording session is much faster and easier than having to make corrections after your recording session. This tutorial illustrates how to use “Punch and Roll” when recording direct to Audacity.

Apple recommends -16 dB LKFS, with +/- 1 dB tolerance and true-peak value
to not exceed -1 dB FS. One unit of LKFS and one unit of LUF, are both the same, 1 dB. So, when you see LKFS, it's the same dB as LUF.
