thanks for taking time!
- What do you mean by “wanted to do a null test, then analyzed”? which steps did you take specifically?
I exported from the same project the stereo bus on each machine - then imported the 2 stereo tracks into a new project and flip the phase on one stereo track - the result should’ve been silence - to be sure the hackintosh is getting the same result, which is not the case. So I run the statistic on each stereo track, see attached picture
- How large was the difference of TP and LUFS?
see attached picture
- What do you mean by “bounce”? Actual Cubase/Nuendo “bounce” or “export audio mixdown” (Pro Tools “bounce”)?
yes sorry, export audio mixdown
- You said after “without any plugins inserted”, did you mean first before the bounce you had plugins inserted and you tried without when you did the “bounce”?
After realising that it’s probably a latency issue with a hole mix I opened a new project on both machines, and imported a stereo file and export audio mixdown without any plugins on both machines
- You said then “and the results where[sic] the same”; did you mean you still had that difference?[/i]
When I compared those exports of a stereo track from each machine there was no difference at all - so all good without any plugins
Intuitively I’d say check your routing. It’s not uncommon for people to accidentally set up new systems differently and not notice. Your project should load the same, but it’s I guess hypothetically possible for your “studio setup” or whatever it’s called to be different and unaffected by the project. So check that you didn’t accidentally double up on outputs/monitoring paths etc. And check where you’re measuring levels.
I’ve imported all the preferences from the old machine into the new machine (Library/Preferences/Cubase) should be fine
Also make sure automation plays the same if you’re using it. And check all faders and trims etc.
Really need more clear information about what you did and how though.
the automation is the next thing I will check
Thanks again for taking time
