I normalize a file, using peak normalization, and 0dB as the max value… and I get a waveform that is blown up way too big, an audio track that hits levels way above 0dB. Something is wrong.
It’s just a mono bass file on a track with no inserts, eqs, channel strip. Nothing.
but what’s interesting is that when I run the “statistics” of the file, from the Audio menu, it says the peak of the file is 0dB.
So Cubase is simply playing and displaying it incorrectly?
