Audio fades in and out while recording and monitoring.

Recommended Posts

Alright, to start off, I'm new here so I didn't know exactly where to put this so I'm sorry if it's in the wrong place. I also don't really know the keywords to search as I've tried everything I can think of to no avail. 


My problem is that when I set up to record and turn on monitoring the program seems to automatically change the input/output volume without showing any changes visually. I'll be recording and it sounds fine but suddenly the audio will drop out or get louder. It doesn't seem to be triggered by peaking. It seems to be listening to the base audio level and then changing it from there but this is only a theory and does not happen consistently. 


I hope all of this makes sense and thank you in advance for any help provided.

Have you checked the following features in the General Audio  preferences?

  • Independent monitoring level for record-enabled channel strips” checkbox: Allows the use of an independent monitoring level for record-enabled audio channel strips. This is off by default. After record-enabling a track, you can adjust the fader to the level you like. The original level will be restored when you deselect the Record Enable button.
    Note: Adjustments to the fader do not affect the recording level; they only affect the monitoring level.
  • DIM Level slider: Sets a discrete level for the Dim function. You can set a dim level from 0 dB to –30 dB. The level chosen here is used when the Dim button is activated from the Master channel strip.

Besides, do you have any dynamic related automation recorded?
