I am currently running N4 and soon (once i have the funds) will be upgrading to either to the latest Nuendo or possibly Cubase 8. I just want to clarify before I decide what to do.
Today I noticed that in the N4 manual it says that if you select “input metering” that channels meter should reflect the input level POST gain/trim pot but pre everything else. However, I tried this today and the metering still shows post fader even if I changed the gain/trim pot setting. However, the master out meter DOES reflect this.
For me its important becasue I like to do all my gain staging before I start a mix because at times I use particular pieces of hardware that have sweet spots at particular levels.
I noticed that if you switch to “post panner” metering it gives the correct metering but if you have things already inserted on that channel its no help.
Obviously the manual is wrong, OR, the manual is right and its a bug. If so, has this been rectified on the latest versions?
