Hi, I’ve posted about this elsewhere (FX/Aux channel several dB down!) but I think a fresh start is order as I can now reproduce (and fix!) the problem at will. But I’m totally confused as to why it’s happening in the first place and I’m hoping someone can explain. These screenshots are from a brand new test project (link below):
Here a mono track (‘DI Strum’ → ‘Group 1’) is sending to a mono aux ('FX 1 → ‘Stereo Out’). Both the aux and group are 3dB down, which I wasn’t expecting. However, if I route ‘DI Strum’ → ‘Stereo Out’ then the levels match:
Why would routing to a group make such a difference?
If I route both ‘DI Strum’ and ‘FX 1’ to the group, their levels match again:
I can see the same numbers popping up all over the place and the meters changing from single to double even though they’re mono seems significant but I just can’t get my head around why I’m not always getting the same levels in all channels. There must be a good reason so can anyone tell me what it is?
