Cubase Meter Clipping Issue

Hey friends,

I just transitioned from FL Studio to Cubase and am experiencing some metering issues. My problem is that VST instruments I play inside Cubase all show clipping - even on my external audio interface. Interestingly though, in my home DAW, FL, I have no clipping issues whatsoever at the same volume level. I can avert the issue in Cubase by lowering the problematic mixer tracks, but I am losing lots of volume. :question:

I am a brand new Cubase user, so I’m probably overlooking something. Otherwise, I’m pretty stoked about Cubase.

Thanks yall,


Sounds like you just need to lower the output from each VSTi, not just by lowering the channel fader, if you want things louder then turn your monitoring system up…
