OK, I did it. As I mixed in Cubase I screwed up my gain staging so that I occasionally clip the output of the mix bus. No problem right? Just pull down the fader.
However, I use a hardware EQ and a hardware compressor as inserts on my mix bus. So, since they are pre fader they keep getting clipped.
How do you deal with this? Do you just insert something like a Waves L1 before the hardware? Find the offending transient? Start over?
BTW: I can’t hear the clipping as it goes out of my Aurora 16 and into my monitors. There is no digital distortion sound. So, I’m not sure if this is even an issue. Still, I was wondering how people are dealing with this kind of situation,
Thanks for your replies and insights.
