This is weird. Im working on a mix that sounds different when exporting it. Upon Cubase playback it sounds well balanced, but the exported version sounds dull, lacking in air and overcompressed. There is nothing on the master stereo output channel, except multiscope, which is’nt supposed to affect how things sound. Right?
I´ve searched this forum for an answer and checked what they recommend:
- No, I have nothing inserted on the stereo bus.
- I´m exporting to the same sample frequency / bit depth, so no dither is required.
- There is no analogue summing. Cubase is doing the summing.
What is happening? Does anyone else have come across such a thing?
I have noticed this effect in other mixes, but it only affects the RMS level (lower on the exporter file). Its never affected the sound so heavily.
