What is a good dB level for audio?

How do you convert LUFS to dB?

LUFS and True Peak affect each other and therefore should be addressed simultaneously. There is a relationship between LU (loudness units) and dB (decibels) that gives an easy formula to help you hit your target levels with precision. To put it simply, 1 LU = 1 dB.
