cheeserandyburg Posted October 5, 2011 Share Posted October 5, 2011 I just noticed this tonight while using the Adaptive limiter on my track. When bouncing my final mix as a WAVE with the adaptive limiter on an out ceiling set to -0.3db, then reloading it in Logic, the levels on the mixer (with the fader set to 0db) the levels stay at -0.3db through out the whole song. That makes sense to me. Here's what doesn't: When doing the SAME thing but bouncing to mp3 and reloading it back into logic as a mp3, it goes up to 0.0db and I see red on my interface. Clearly going over. What is happening to the file as a Mp3 that would be making it go from -0.3db to 0.0db ? This doesn't happen as a 24 bit wave file. Perhaps someone has an answer. Ofcourse in addition to this, when loading an mp3 of a commercial recording the levels are in the red aswell on my interface. We all know about the loudness war, but if the out ceiling is set to -0.3db, then why are the levels breaking past it?! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
