Not sure of this but I'm compressing and limiting the hell out of the main outs, bouncing it with normalise on, and it still sounds way softer than other (CD) tracks. Is there an issue with Logic 9 and it (off line) bouncing soft levels? I'm not talking 'loudness' here. I'm going to run some diagnostics tomorrow and may discover a user error- or not. I just wanted to test the water here with this post to see if anyone had experienced any bugs reaulting in lower level normalising compared with previous versions of logic. Cheers.
