Just as a minor detail, the Sound Activation Level slider range is determined by the Meter / Waveform dB range set in Interface Preferences: . By default, that range is -60 dB, so if you did not change that preference then zero percent on the Sound Activation Level slider would be -60 dB and 100 percent would be 0 dB.
