I have to ask this because it happened to me today and I had no explanation, please read.
I had batch exported a project and reloaded it into a new mixer. The drums didn’t sound right. As I soloed the track, it sounded great until it got to approximately bar 16. At this point a really ugly thing happened, like a bad phasing issue. I thought,OK, since its just a loop, I’ll split the track at bar 14, copy the earlier bars that sound great, paste them together and get on with things. When I did this, the same phase sound happened at the same bar position. Next I moved the 14 bars that did sound great into the bar 16 position, played it and found the same issue.
I had not added any EQ or effects to the track and hadn’t routed it to any other channel.
Next I dragged it down to an unused track, played it and it sounded great. What do you think could have caused this and is this anything that anyone else has experienced?
