rendered file not the same mix as in session.

Post by rossdet » Mon Mar 06, 2006 4:24 am

on of the tracks in my rendered file is much much lower in the mix than when its played in the session. The is a delay effect on that track which i don't believe has any thing to do with this problem, but as I said it is upfront in the mix in the session in Live. ANybody know why this is happening?

I also noticed that it is off, almost as if the wet mix is turned up much higher than it actually is on the delay effect.

Also, I think when rendering, it uses your soundcard. So if you are using built-in audio. You may lose some quality.

the audio quality isn't an issue. its the actual track in the mix

Er, no it doesn't.

Try to render something with the audio engine off.

turn off normalization and see if that changes anything
