iMac 3ghz, OS 10.8.2, Cubase 7.01
I am sure this is something I am doing wrong as it’s been happening since there was Audio Export of a mix in Cubase. Basically I can make a nice fat, loud mix in Cubase. The Main-out meter is just under the red line. Then I use Export Audio. When I play the resulting AIFF file in Quicktime (or any other suitable player) at the same system volume it’s remarkably softer.
Did some internet searching and that problem apparently had been reported in conjunction with the Studio setup in Cubase. This is disabled in my setup.
Any ideas where I can start looking?
