Audio Mixdown is Muffled

This is my first post, and I’m getting up to speed using Cubase Elements 10.5.

I have researched this, and there does not seem to be a clear answer, but a .wav that is exported from Cubase has a distinct muffled quality. Export is in stereo, 16 bit depth.

I brought it back into the project, and the difference is definately there. It sounds muffled. There are no levels that are clipping. What could be causing this? Thanks.

Hi and welcome,

Can you hear the difference if you compare the source and the result played back from Cubase (the very same project)? What Sample Rate do you use?
