I loaded a mix project today, free multitracks from a perfectly respectable source. The first thing that struck me was the the audio balance seemed shifted somewhat to the left channel. This was disconcerting, so, since I was monitoring on headphones, I swapped them round on my ears - hoping it’s not my ears giving up - and the balance shift swapped also. So, I swapped headphones, then I swapped out the headphone cable, after first testing the audio balance from a different source; audio from You Tube vids coming from the jack output of my laptop, I even ran a couple of stereo test vids, where everything seemed fine. Then, I loaded a few projects of my own into my DAW and the shift was back.
Is there anything within the settings & preferences within Cubase Pro where this balance issue can be addressed?
Has anyone else had similar issue, or know of any reason why this might occur?
If it had been something such as phase issues with my tracks, I might accept that, but the downloaded mix project tracks have no processing at all, so I’m looking at the DAW being the problem. Any ideas?
