This is my workflow:
arrangement in Cubase 6.02 -> mixed to 8 stereo outputs -> to my soundcards (2x mhlabs Mio2882/aggregate device) -> analog out to my Neve mixer +outboard gear (comp, eq) -> stereo sum to Hardware Waves maxxbcl (for L2 use only / output is maxed to -0.3db) -> digital via AES/EBU back to soundcard -> into Cubase mixer input channel (everything is ZERO, no parameter change at all!) -> recording is done to the arrange window…
ok. that s working!
BUT now my recorded audios peak is not at -0.3db, it’s at -1.5db!! WHY?
(i found this thread: http://www.steinberg.net/forum/viewtopic.php?f=20&t=1975 , but it got never answered).
I’m a newbie to Cubase (but not to studio work!), if i’ve done a mistake, or if i’ve not seen a parameter to change, calibrate, whatever… PLEASE TELL ME…
I’ve tried the input gain, but this is not affecting the recording…
btw. my inputs at the software mixer of my soundcards had a peak at -0.3db / recording the same way with Logic Pro & Ableton Live results the same peak of -0.3db
