uncleAlbert Posted October 23, 2011 Share Posted October 23, 2011 Hello, I'm new here so apologies if this has been posted recently. I did come across the thread below but the issue I'm experiencing is slightly different: Huge Volume jump on Loop's First Beat [sOLVED] I've got a simple 8 bar arrangement consisting of five EXS24 tracks: 2 kicks, 1 snare, 1 for hats and the other contains a few bass notes, none of which fall in the same place as the kicks. One kick has a low cut of 140hz and a high cut of 6300hz, the other has a low cut of 40hz and a high cut of 140hz. All tracks have sensible EQ and compression inserts. The output channel of this loop peaks at -0.1db and there is no limiter on the master output. The output peaks at -0.1db when I play the loop but if I hit the space bar mid playback, the output jumps to +1.5 as soon as the first beat plays. This value of +1.5db is inconsistent - sometimes it can be +0.2 or +0.7. The same thing occurs when I move the playhead to a point of silence before the midi regions or change the cycle length. Whatever the case the signal increases as soon as the first beat plays, until I reset the Output monitor and allow the loop to cycle. After that it goes back to normal. I'm not sure if it's anything to do with how I mix my tracks. I always mix everything at around -20 until I'm satisfied with the overall mix and then I put a Gain insert on my master Output channel to get it as close to 0db as possible. All regions are exact clones of one another and I have checked for hidden notes so it can't be that. I'm running Logic Pro 9 with no third party plugins but I also noticed this problem when I used to run Cubase SX3 and Battery so it's not a Logic-specific issue. I'm certain this is a midi issue because it never happens when I loop audio regions. Hope that's enough to go on. Thanks in advance. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
