wazapamani Posted January 8, 2012 Share Posted January 8, 2012 Somehow I always end up having mixed things right, and at the end there's a few tracks that I have to add. Now, to avoid the stereo-output from clipping, I have the choice between: 1. pulling down all tracks with a few dB, which is slightly more complicated for volume- automated tracks. 2. Route everything through a bus and drag down that volume, and route it to the output, or 3. Put a gain on the stereo-output and decrease that one. 4. Decrease the stereo-output 5. Put a gain on the master. 6. Decrease the master ( although I learned never to touch that before I was even born) Which of those is best soundwise, and do you know of any other (simpler) options? For me, using option 4, when I use endcompression, say adaptive compressor on the stereo-out, the volume does not reach 0dB. But I do want the volume to reach 0dB. Any thoughts to prevent this from the start when you begin a project? Because there is always a point where you say: this is the right mix. But now louder altogether! Or softer...
