Topic: Setup to detect clipping on playback (Novice question)

What is a useful configuration of Digicheck to detect playback clipping?
System: FF UFX+, Win 10 x64 v2004, Digicheck 5.92. Digital input to the UFX+ is from Acourate convolver on the same computer. Output is on AN1/2 and AN 3/4 to stereo subs and main speakers. UFX+ is the 4-channel DAC. It is set to -10dBv output.
I use Acourate for "digital room correction" and add gain in the drc filters to compensate for volume loss due to the digital filters. I wish to detect clipping with Digicheck, or preferably, detect near-clipping and then reduce the gain to avoid the problem. After reading the Digicheck Help file, I set up the 4-channel display with settings (only showing key settings)
Reference 0 dB
Top Level 3 dB
Warning 0.1 dB
Level Text RMS
Level Bar RMS slow
Infinite Hold ON
OVS ON
RMS +3dB ON
RLB W.Filter ON

That looks correct. You can use these settings via F3, MADIface Series ASIO, Playback, to check what you send out to the UFX+.
