hi pass filter out the ultra low bass (50hz) and see what happens to the volumeIm using the presets for mastering on my output prior to bounce and compression on most tracks prior to output but my songs are still not as loud as a songs in itunes even after normalizing....
What level is the master out (not the output 1-2 strip) set at? If it is higher than 0, then it will raise the signal level, even after any limiter running in the output 1-2 channel strip.after i apply the limiter (should i use adaptive limiter or regular, btw? i've been using adaptive) and compression, the meter says it's 3-4 db in the red. should i reduce the volume so that it isn't? shouldn't the limiter fix this?
If you're using a preset on the limiter, you might find that you need to change some settings before the limiter will function exactly right. Presets are a great starting point but they will rarely be just right straight off the bat.the limiter is set to the 'average limit' preset
