Clipping conundrum

In my final mix, I’m getting clipping at the same bar in the Main Mix Output Channel. I can’t seem to isolate what’s causing it. How can I identify which track / part is the culprit?


If you are talking about Audio tracks, you can use the Audio > Statistics to find the highest peak of the selected Audio Event.

But it might not be in the Audio clip at all. It could be result of a plug-in or the mixing (summing) of the signals.

Can you see the red clip at any of the track?

Thanks for speedy reply, Martin.

I only get the red clip in the Stereo Out as individual channels do not show this. Is this because I am only using Elements?

I think you’re right, it is the summing of the signals. I’ll attend to it!

Keep up the good work.

Thanks and regards,

No, it means, there is no individual track clipping. It’s clipping on the mixing/summing.

Got it! Very helpful, thanks again.
