When the normalisation flag is … Euh … Flagged, all exports are brought back to that value.
Look at it this way: when you set your exports to 48k, then everything will be exported @ 48k.
The application can’t possibly know which channels/outputs you ant to have normalized.
Seeing that this is a post app, and that the standard is for stems to sum to the full mix, I thought it would be good to get it confirmed. It works just as I expected it to work, it’s just that it’s essentially useless for anyone who has to render stems that sum to full mix. One can’t export a set of stems that are normalized “upwards” to the same standard as the full mix.
I understand what you’re saying and that the app can’t read my mind of course. The only solution I could think of is a scenario where the app reads signal flow “backwards” and if groups/outputs feed the master which is normalize-flagged then those groups/outputs would not get the normalization applied. That would only work as long as they only have one output of course.
